The issue is on my Samsung TV UN43MU6100.
Software version: T-KTMUABC-1290.3 (up to date).
YouTube app version: web_20210913_08_RC00.
I reset the app through YouTube settings to see if it would help. Same issue.
Factory reset the TV. Same issue.
Any "YouTube Music playlist" or "My Mix" or any channel that has " - topic" as suffix won't play. It shows the cover of the song with a buffering logo for a few seconds, then the error.
Error: Something went wrong. Unknown Audio Playback Error Playback ID: 7Z5Jc_UVySu3dZwf
ID changes depending on the video/song, obviously.
Have you attempted to reset smart hub by any chance? Are you logged into Youtube Music? Have are you getting this error when using a different account?

Yes, I did the reset. Even unplugged it for a few seconds afterward, just in case.
I'm logged in. Tried two accounts of Google, both with YouTube Premium.
Same issue with the YouTube app on our Samsung smart TV. From the YouTube Music tab, most videos will not play. Same with the album cover and buffering icon, and same error message, with a different Playback ID of course. We also tried multiple accounts, reinstalling the app, etc.
Interestingly, the problem appears to be uniquely connected to the TV. We started a video on the YouTube phone app and it worked fine. When we casted to the TV, it tried to play for a second, then the same thing happened.
Very frustrating and haven't been able to find any solutions.
