Google has already blocked YouTube on the Fire TV

havent checked my fire tv stick yet. silk browser seems to manage youtube quite well. though i guess casting support would not be there.

ui is pretty similar to an app. but without casting support from youtube app on phone, it is not very convenient to use. my niece is very used to using the cast button to switch from phone to tv to watch her arts and craft videos.

fire tv remote app is too annoying to use ?. loses connection as soon as you switch focus out of the app. even the hardware remote is too glitchy for me. could be the same issue that @Nishant was facing on his unit. he argued with amazon customer support to get a replacement under warranty. he was asked to order a new remote (which costs as much as half the cost of the fire tv stick itself!) and then he was to get a refund of that amount or something like that.

I usually play bollywood station and once I play a video, it keeps playing next videos. Once I open an video, it is playing without the need to press play button. I am using the second option which is 1080p option.
