I can't find you tube on my Samsung smart tv

You probably can't. YouTube discontinued support for Flash in the middle of last year. Certain older Smart TVs (and Blu-ray players and set top boxes) only had a Flash YouTube app. This app no longer works. If Samsung hasn't made a HTML 5 version of the YouTube app for your smart TV, then you're stuck. You can't view YouTube videos on it anymore using the TV's smart features.

This is one of the reasons why many of us have recommended avoiding smart TVs. If you want smart TV-like features, buy a dumb TV and use the money you saved to buy a Roku or Chromecast or Fire Stick. Not only are the better supported, but if they ever become obsolete you can just buy a cheap newer model. The extra money you spent for a smart TV is now wasted, but you can still get one of these devices and hook it up to your TV.
