    Default Choppy Youtube Streaming

    Hi,

    Chromecasting Youtube from my Note 2 and wife's iphone. The stream is always choppy. Streams are fine on our phones, computers, and Blu Ray player that has a YouTube app.

    Tried setting up Chromecast again, restarting, removing Chromecast and putting it back in. No luck.

    Anyone help? Anyone else getting this?

    Thanks

    Welcome to AC. Choppy as in framerate or in buffering? I honestly haven't noticed it. I assume you've tried multiple videos. Does it do the same if you reduce the quality?

    Keep in mind you're not streaming anything from the phone. You're just telling the Chromecast to stream it from the internet.

    Having the same problem. Only started happening yesterday after months of trouble free use.

    Does the issue happen on different sets? Try moving it to another TV and see if it gets better. Also, consider resetting the router then try again.

    Having the same issues since yesterday also. Did a Google search and found this thread. Youtube works well on all devices but Chromecast. Was there some update that broke something?

    I also have a distinct difference in the quality of signal I get on You Tube compared to either Pandora or Netflix...Netflix, for example, will play for well over an hour before I get the dreaded 'Buffering' abomination. On You Tube, if I am lucky, it might play for 3 or 4 minutes....same gear, same router, same internet provider. As You Tube has no premium service or real customer support, there is nothing I can do but wait for some other service with a quality feed to replace You Tube.

    I'm having the same problem. I have 2 chromecasts, it's happening on both, only with YouTube, and only since today. 11/16/13.

    Makes me think it's server side.

    If it is server-side, then they must have fixed it. I just tried it and it was fine. I'm on non-rooted 13300.

    I had the same problem yesterday... It definitely had to do with Google... I thought it was my router or ISP... Today its back to normal...
