For some reason, it has me signed out, even though I've always had it checked to keep me singed in. It say my email and phone number is unrecognized. I test this out on my laptop and phone, and I can log in just fine. Any ideas on what the hell is going on?

Never mind. I had to sign in through my phone to work on PS4. I still don't know why I could not do it on the console itself.

Because I like seeing my favorite content on a screen bigger than my laptop.
I would really recommend buying a $30 chrome cast. Works better than using your PS4 for things like youtube and netflix. Personally though, watching youtube on anything other than a PC is completely not worth the effort because of certain things you can do on a PC that you can't do on a playstation.

I appreciate the advice, but I don't need anything special. It helps me relax at times, and I enjoy it. Thank you, though. I will do you a solid, keep that idea in mind. Sounds like a great alternative.

Whatever, just wash your hands.

If you have a smart TV then you might be able to just cast to it without having to buy anything. You can do it straight from your phone or laptop chrome browser.

Yeah, I loaned my dad my PS4 for like a year when I wasn't using it because he needed something to stream netflix, hulu, and youtube from and doesn't have a smart TV. I needed my playstation back so I bought him one of the new chrome casts (I was considering getting him an Nvidia shield but figured he wouldn't use most of the features). He likes the chrome cast better than the playstation. The UI is better for video streaming and it's snappier. 100% recommend if you have an extra HDMI port in your TV that's unused.
