    to only view videos that are less than 1 hr., 29 min.?

    Any video longer than that and you get the "Unable to access media" message", shorter videos have access.

    This seems to just be a DTV issue, and wonder why the time limitation. There are a lot of longer videos, including instructional,
    that I would like to view on my large TV screen.

    Is there a work around?

    Yes, use a different device to access YouTube. Seriously.

    It was cool and all for a hot minute when D* added YouTube, but for as dumb as my smart TV is even it does a better job with YouTube, by a lot.
