Signing into the Youtube app on the iPhone 4S

Other Apple Chat
Hello, When trying to sign in to Youtube via the app on the iPhone, I for some reason am unable to. I'm using my Google account username and password to do this, and I can do this just fine on my pc, and through the built in web browser on the iPhone. I was reading somewhere that you have to use an app specific password, that I was unable to get, because Jaws kept saying when I entered the edit field to type my username and such, edit field unavailable. Is there a simpler way around this, or can anyone give any other suggestions? Thanks, Shane.
