YouTube glitch preventing some Wii U users from watching videos

Some users are experiencing a glitch that has some Wii U users unable to play YouTube videos in the system's web browser. (Nintendo, Wii U, YouTube)

don't bother with the app on Wii U, its better to just use the internet (on Wii U). It is THE BEST way to watch Youtube videos ever, and that means better than PC.

It's the Wii U's browser that it doesn't...
function on.

Really disappointed about this (hopefully it gets corrected soon).

Has anybody tried going into the Youtube settings to force HTML5 and try the Wii U that way? By coincidence I had that set for other reasons but I've just tested Youtube on my Wii U and it's fine.

I'd offer to disable it on my PC and test the Wii U again but as the saying goes, "If it aint broke, don't fix it"

Go to the web page of your video of choice and tap on the url bar, replace the "watch?v=" part of the address with “embed/”.
