PS3 YouTube App – unable to contact youtube fix

I was getting “Unable to contact YouTube”. I believe my current version as of writing is 1.0.4.
This is how I fixed it. I change the DNS settings on the PS3, to point to 8.8.4.4, and 8.8.8.8 (google’s DNS servers). After this change, the youtube app worked just fine.
I gave my PS3 a static IP, and and applied the proper settings. Test the PS3 internet settings, and start the YouTube app. Everything should work, at least it did fo rme.
Hope this helps… drop a line if it did.

  1. Didnt to shit for me. After setting the DNS to 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4 I still get the same unable to connect to you tube message every time. Can you specify what yourvexact settings were on your PS3? Also how do I go about creating a stayic IP address without screwing up the ps3 internet connection?

    1. Not sure if u got it working yet but make sure the date and time is accurate too for some reason if it isn’t it might not let u in. Good luck

  2. Thanks man that totally worked . Supposedly the date and time also has to be accurate from what I heard but not so sure because I did that first and the ” unable to contact Youtube ” appeared but now after putting in that DNS code it finally let me back in so thanks.
