I tried sudo apt remove youtube but it didn't remove the app. How do I remove it? It was installed from website itself. It's not in Ubuntu Software Centre.

Where did it install from....url please

Where did it install to.....the ubuntu os as an app?....or to your browser?

Your inane questions have too many people running in circles here....with little or no information to work with

Think !!!!....before you type.

That youtube is an web app. You can't use apt remove to uninstall a web app. Its just an youtube website with standalone window and icon which is called as web app.
Just go to chrome -> open a new tab, type chrome://apps -> right click on the youtube icon -> click on "remove from chrome".
