    Why is there a message on my Philips TV indicating that YouTube will stop working after June 30, 2017?

    Published on 2017-10-16

    If you are seeing a message indicating that YouTube will cease functioning on 6/30/2017, this is due to a decision taken by Google, the parent company of YouTube, to stop supporting FLASH based applications.

    We understand that this decision may be disappointing and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. Unfortunately, Google and YouTube have made this decision and this decision was outside of our control. To continue to enjoy your favorite creators and videos and to further stream content from the YouTube app, however there are several options available.

    OPTION 1- Wireless Media Connect

    If your product supports Wireless Media Connect (see list), you can mirror the screen of a PC or Laptop to continue to enjoy YouTube on your TV!

    OPTION 2: Connecting via HDMI or Adding a USB device to allow streaming

    If you have a laptop or tablet that outputs to HDMI, you can connect that device to your Philips television and continue to enjoy YouTube on your television screen by tuning to the HDMI input you connect to with your device.
