Microsoft Microsoft's legal chief: "We continue to be dogged by an issue we had hoped would be resolved by now: Google continues to prevent Microsoft from offering consumers a fully featured YouTube app for the Windows Phone." Utter nonsense, since MetroTube offers a complete and full YouTube experience on Windows Phone (it's one of the best Windows Phone applications), and YouTube+ on Windows 8. Two fantastically rich applications, built by small ISVs - yet Microsoft can't do the same? Don't make me laugh. Coincidentally, Microsoft is also whining some more about Google's removal of ActiveSync - Redmond again refuses to acknowledge that all it needs to do is implement the open standards CalDAV and CardDAV, just like everyone else has done. Times have changed, Ballmer. You don't get to dictate the industry anymore.

You can't find documentation to make a fully featured YouTube client. I don't think you understand this.

Have you actually tried to use the API? Are you stupid? Is this entire article made up? Are the issues that third party Windows Phone and Windows Store apps have imaginary? Are you inebriated?

YouTube offers a SUBSET of APIs available, you CANNOT build a fully functional YouTube client using the public API because it is incomplete and only allows for superficial integration with the service.

If you had bothered to read the documentation (you didn't) or even bothered to try to implement the API (again, you didn't) or even did the slightest amount of due diligence (nope again) you'd know this is true.

This is what is truly infuriating, you're so interested in a fucking gotcha that you don't even take the time to do basic research.

You made a claim, and I simply pointed out a link to the documentation for the youtube APIs. If you have nothing to add to the conversation so be it, no need for silly strawmen about what I may or may not have done.
