Firecore, the makers of aTV Flash (black) for second generation Apple TV owners, has announced it has released a new YouTube plugin today to bring back the service after it was removed back in May by Google.
The new YouTube plugin for ATV2 allows for browsing of popular videos as well as searching for videos, channels, users, or playlists. We’re also working on a few other neat options for subsquent releases, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for updates.
Any second generation ATV2 running Apple TV firmware 5.3 or later can install this YouTube plugin, available as part of aTV Flash (black) 2.6.
The company says updating to aTV Flash (black) 2.6 will require running the update from a Mac or PC. After this, subsequent updates will be available right on your Apple TV as before. Links for download are noted within user accounts under the Downloads tab.
