@dentaku: The wpcentral article seems to state that the APIs are changing such that the Microsoft youtube app breaks.  Isn't that the risk involved in using any 3rd party's API?  Is there something stated in the google developer agreement that says they will maintain backward compatibility for x years?

I'm not a Google hater or Microsoft lover.  It just seems illogical to not anticipate a 3rd party changing APIs and have a means already in place to send out an update in hours to adjust to the change.  I'm still missing something here.
