    I'm trying to use the youtube application. It works fine but when I log in with my gmail account it states the accounts are not linked and to go to youtube.

    If I log into youtube it recognizes the gmail account...should I just uninstall the youtube player and install it again? Seems a tad annoying. I like the interphase better than using chrome to go to youtube

    PLenty of other threads say, "create a YouTube channel", with your account on a computer that works will fix it for you.

    Just went through this exact same thing a week ago or so. Google has been automatically updattheir accounts to a new format. This format requires your YouTube account to have a "channel" associated with it. For whatever reason, when YouTube updates your existing account, it doesn't create a "channel" for you... this causes the account to not work on other devices ( if you log into YouTube on your android tablet or phone you will get the same error message ).

    To fix it, you need to log into you YouTube avount on a computer, go into your channel. It will tell you you don't have a channel and ask you to create one. Once you do, your account will be synchronized with you Google TV / android phone it tablet.
