This article will go over a few common errors with the YouTube App and how to solve them.
"No videos on this channel" message
If you've entered a URL for a channel and this appears, you've likely entered the URL wrong (thanks a lot, YouTube). If you've navigated to the channel from search, you will get the working URL, but if you are already on the channel and click around between sub-sections, you may be given the incorrect URL.
Correct URL make-up is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/channelID
URLs like these will NOT work:
- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXV5jMQcTHZflWUxRd3PFNg/ (forward slash on the end)
Captions not displaying when "Show Captions" toggled on

"No Videos Found" Message
If you have set the app to play videos "No Older Than" a certain time frame, this occurs when the channel has not released a video within that frame. Increase this limit to avoid this message.
