    Attempting to upload a video using the in-game video editor will open the Ubisoft Connect overlay, and ask you to select a Google account to continue to YouTube with. After selecting the preferred account, you will be sent to a Google OAuth "Danger" page stating that "This app is blocked."



    In the game, this error is displayed.



    Pressing "Retry" simply results in the exact same errors.

    The videos are still recorded, and exist on the hard disk under C:\Users[Windows Username]\Documents\The Crew 2\VideoRecordings\ and can be uploaded to YouTube manually through this method, but the game will not track these uploads.

    From what I can understand, this is due to The Crew 2 using an older, insecure OAuth method that Google has since deprecated and no longer allows apps to connect with. This issue has been around for a while and was reported before on the old forum: (https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2252935-Sign-in-with-Google-temporarily-disabled-for-this-app), but has never been updated. I assumed - since The Crew 2 is still recieving content updates - it would be fixed eventually, but it never was, so I'm filing a more direct bug report about it.

    Are there any plans to restore this functionality to the game, or at least make the share system optional/remove the upload system for a more user friendly UX when making videos?

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @orangestar1 Have the same issue on PC. I can connect to YouTube using a non gmail account but can't share to YouTube as it's blocked.
