4. Check the box to "Show video captions if avilable" if applicable

5. Upload an image to show as the splash screen while your video loads

  • Click the "Upload Video Loading Image" button

  • Select an image from your device, a link, web search, or Flickr

  • Edit your image by cropping or rotating

  • If you made any changes to the image, click "Save" 
  • Click "Upload" to finish uploading the file

  • Wait for the file to optimize

6. Click "Save" to save the feed

The app will tell YouTube to use the same stream it would send to a smart TV so that advertisements are minimized.

The YouTube app does support closed captioning if the closed captioning was manually input on the YouTube video itself.

Note: The YouTube app does not support playlists in YouTube.  You do have to link each video individually.
