YouTube - Deliberately broken on older devices

2 of 7 YouTube reviews

I have been playing YouTube on my BlackBerry for years, but suddenly instead of the video I want, I now get a *** video that says "youtube is upgrading to a newer version which is not supported by this device or app." Pardon my language, but WTF?!They are denying to play the video on my device just because it is 5 years old?????

This is so ridiculous!

This is the most HORRID decision that YouTube has EVER made in years, and I am so pissed off right now because I sell used phones, and I know thattheir prices will PLUMMET because they can't play YouTube anymore!I suggest that we dump this B S company and switch to Vimeo or Dailymotion.
