PS4 YouTube app

Idea 73345 | Posted in , , by | May 20, 2014

The PlayStation store should add a YouTube application for the PS4 and PS3. You should also be able to upload your gameplay from your PS4 by using the share button.


Update: With PS4 system software update 2.00, codenamed “Masamune,” PS4 users are able to upload gameplay clips to YouTube using the Share button. A full-featured PS4 YouTube app is also available for download.

its even on Vita, also don’t make the app US only.

Yeah for real. I was INCREDIBLY disappointed with the lack of actual internet ability it gives you. Sure, you have the options of Netflix, and hulu, but for just fun browsing on your own time…that’s what the PS4 needs.

To be fair, all you need to do is go on the browser and go to Not that big of a deal to me, and actually saves that much space on the HD.

As Superline51 stated, all you need to do is go to go to in your browser and that’s it, it’s exactly the same as having the app.

i really would love to have a youtube app

The Youtube app on PS3 is garbage so I’m not really bothered by a lack of one on the PS4. What we need is more Flash or HTML5 support in the browser. If using Youtube on the PS4’s internet browser was identical to checking it on my PC, that’d be fantastic.

Sharing should be much more native than it is now. I suggest SONY offer 1 GB of cloud storage for video uploads that can be accessed privately or publicly, somewhat like a SONY version of Youtube for PS+ subscribers. This would make video sharing much more intuitive and less cumbersome than it is currently. They can even offer different tiers of storage for an added fee for those who wish for more space. That could serve as another revenue stream for SONY.

So 1 GB free for all PS+ subscribers and if you want more than that you have the option to pay for different amounts of space.

This way you can upload vids instantly to the cloud service without having to upload to a USB drive or facebook, the way it now.

I tried posting this as an idea but stupid 200 character limit, even after trying to shorten it, so I”ll just piggy back on your post here.

YES. This is a must for me. The app is always more convenient then the web-browser.

This should be removed from voting. They already announced this as coming in the Fall.

Look like this one was fulfilled and announced at E3. Please remove it.


Reptile-2k  |  June 23rd, 2014 at 11:40 am

That already was announced at E3 2014.
Can be removed or marked as in action from playstation team.

This is confirmed to be coming so they can get rid of this

I think that when they add this feature to the share button they should do like a “top 10” videos of the week on there YouTube channel. Yes this would require extensive work for someone (or several people). But that would be an awesome addition.

It’s confirmed for next update!!!!!
