I have a Yu Yureka mobile with stock CM12.1. It came preinstalled with Google Photos and I updated it to its latest version. It was working fine until one day I tried to free up space by deleting already synced photos using the app itself. It crashed. After that whenever I open the app, it crashes within 5 seconds.

I tried several workarounds like clearing the cache, data of Photos, clearing Google Play Services' data, manually turning backup photos off and on but nothing works.

[a] Finally I uninstalled the update and arrived at the stock version of Photos. Now the app is not crashing immediately but I cannot turn on backup. It is always disabled. Whenever I click the Backup button in Settings (of Photos), it opens Backup screen for a moment but then closes and arrives back at the Settings menu.

After this, I installed the latest update but then again, the cycle repeats.

Can you guys help me in solving this issue? I tried putting reviews and reported bugs, but you know, it's Google.

I took a log of the Backup window closing event I mentioned in [a]. I cleared the logcat just before I pressed the Backup button -> logcat is on -> Backup window closes -> logcat is off. Here's it:

UPDATE: I updated the app again to latest version and the backup didn't work again. Assistant was showing "Waiting for sync" always. But then I deleted the unsynced photos from my camera folder and viola! Sync came back on and everything was good.

But today, I tried to sync a jpg and mp4 file and it synced correctly. But then I tried to play the synced video in Photos itself and it crashed. It is now crashing everytime I open the app. I took another log of this crash:
