CBPSTube is unofficial Youtube application for PS Vita based on SCE VSL framework.

Key Features:

Running the app it simply shuts down my Vita after a black screen.
And yes, I have installed CapUnlocker.skprx

EDIT: the shutdown is in the capunlocker.skprx. If I remove that, the Youtube app starts.
EDIT2: would be great if the app remembered the 720P option

I just wanted to thank you for this app, it works great and I really enjoy using it, Vita actually makes a great device to watch YouTube.
It does crash sometimes, you can't pause, because after 30s it will reload the player and resume the playback, and the comment section is unusable, but the rest works exactly as it should. And the best feature of this app that doesn't in the browser is that it will start playing back videos at the point I finished them on other devices, and the app will also report to YT where it finished.
