Youtube App not updating?

When I open the Youtube application of my phone it is displaying the same videos for the Most viewed/discussed etc. that it has since I first accessed the app over a week ago.  I have been looking but have not found a way to fix this, any ideas?

Try connecting it Via WiFi to see if it changes.

 

If not, go to Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Menu>Filter All> Youtube>Filter Cache.

 

And if that doesn't work, go to your Task Manager, stop the app and process, restart your phone and that should do the trick.

I was able to delete the Cache and that fixed it.  I tried to do that before posting, but when I went into the applications menu Youtube was not showing.  I just figured that because it was a native App I was unable to access it, but after filtering the list I was able to access and correct the problem.  Thanks.

I have noticed that clearing the cahce is only a temporary solution. Once you reload the app, it again freezes, so the only way to update it now is to clear the cahce everytime. Does anyone else know of a permanent solution??
