Why Vanced Stopped Working?

The first step is to understand why this issue occurs. According to reports, the YouTube Vanced app couldn’t load the video due to significant software changes in the original YouTube app. The Vanced team couldn’t make the necessary changes to match the original app. There were also reports of server-side updates from YouTube causing sudden video not available issues on the YouTube Vanced app.

How to Fix YouTube Vanced Not Working or Content Not Available?

I will share some legitimate steps to help you start watching YouTube content again. However, I am against using specific methods to access the content because, as a content creator, this affects the source of our income.

1. Download Extended Vanced [Hotfix]

The Vanced Extended is a follow-up project of the Vanced Project. The Vanced Extended has the same interface and all the features of the old YouTube Vanced and comes with YouTube Premium features. You can download the microG and Vanced Extended APK on the GitHub page.

MicroG helps you sign in to your Google account. A recently released hotfix can help you fix the ‘The Following Content is Not Available on this App issue on Android.’

One happy user, Jane, says, “I was devastated when I couldn’t watch my favorite videos on YouTube Vanced, but the Vanced Extended with the hotfix solved all my problems. I can now enjoy all the premium features of YouTube Vanced without any issues!”


2. Download YouTube ReVanced

YouTube ReVanced is a free customized YouTube client that replaces the discontinued YouTube Vanced by providing users with similar app features and other extra modes.

The app comes with all the YT Premium features. The ReVanced APK is in the early stages and may cause issues on your device, but you can try the app.

Another user, John, shares his experience, “I was skeptical about using YouTube ReVanced, but I’m glad I did. It has all the features of YouTube Vanced, and the customizable interface is a bonus. Playing videos in high dynamic range (HDR) mode is a game-changer.

3. Use the official YouTube app

You can always use the official YouTube app to avoid using Vanced Extended or YouTube ReVanced. Although it may not have all the features of YouTube Vanced, it’s still an excellent app for watching all your favorite YouTube content.

4. Update your YouTube Vanced app

Even if you are using an app that is not legit, you still can’t update YouTube and their official website of the source from Children downloaded previously.

5. Clear the app cache and data

As always, clearing the Apps Cache is one of the biggest things you can do whenever any app stops working or starts crashing like Samsung Account App Crashing or TikTok Keep Crashing.

If the first step didn’t work, try clearing the cache and data of the YouTube Vanced app. To do this, go to your phone’s Settings > Apps > YouTube Vanced > Storage, then tap “Clear Cache” and “Clear Data.”

6. Check your internet connection

For some people, as a red on Reddit says, it doesn’t stop working because all the videos are playing because they have super-fast Wi-Fi. Sometimes that happens, but check your internet connection if the vanced app is not working.

The error message may appear if your internet connection is slow or unstable. Try switching to a different Wi-Fi network or mobile data to see if the issue persists.

7. Disable battery optimization

Battery optimization is a feature that helps extend your phone’s battery life by restricting certain apps’ activities in the background.

However, this can also cause issues with apps like YouTube Vanced. Go to your phone’s Settings > Battery > Battery Optimization, then find YouTube Vanced and turn off optimization for it.

8. Reinstall YouTube Vanced

If none of the above solutions worked, try reinstalling the YouTube Vanced app. Make sure to download the latest version from a reputable source.

However, use any third-party but safe APK downloading website.

9. Check for server-side updates

Sometimes, the issue may be caused by server-side updates from YouTube. In this case, there’s little you can do but wait for the developers of YouTube Vanced to make the necessary changes.

10. Try Different Accounts

After watching many videos on YouTube and reading a lot of threads from Reddit, you can try using different Google and Yahoo accounts. For some users, YouTube stops not working, particularly for some particular accounts.

So one of the users just created a new account, and the app worked again, so this is how you can fix it. I know there are a lot of phones behind it that all the subscriptions to the Watch Later videos will be gone, and they can’t be recovered now.

  1. Download Vanced new project, Revanced.
  2. Update your Vanced app to the latest version.
  3. Clear the cache and data of the Vanced app.
  4. Use a different email account.
  5. Make sure you have MicroG installed on your device.
  6. Check your internet connection.
  7. Restart your device and try again.
  8. Disable any ad-blockers or VPNs.
  9. Make sure you have granted the necessary permissions to the Vanced app.
  10. Try using Vanced on a different device or emulator.
  11. Contact Vanced support for further assistance.
