    Default Re: YouTube app, video lag. Is it just me an my Nexus7?

    I don't know, it's an irritating problem that seems like it shouldn't exist, although others seem fine. I do knkw I've had this issue since I got my nexus 7 new. I forgot that there is a kindle fire in my house that aslo doesn't have a problem streaming HQ. For what it's worth, netflix does stream fine, I may try freedi yt, but it just doesn't seem like it should be nescessary.

    Not an apple fanboy, but i like my iphone, i messed around with a friend's android tablet and I really liked it, so I bought the nexus 7, but I think next time I'll stick with apple. This is such an irritating and unexpected problem since the main reason I bought a tablet was so I could stop watching vids on my iphone while in bed. Hey, I don't watch TV at all, so it's an even trade.

    Yeah this has been driving me nuts.

    I narrowed the issue to my router which is a good one (Linksys E4200v2). A few months ago, I disabled IPv6 and that solved my issues.
    At that time, I also limited my 2.4GHz signal to 20MHz (to deconflict with the plethora of wifi signals in my neighborhood). All seemed well until about a week ago. YouTube video started lagging significantly again. After some troubleshooting, I found that switching the 2.4GHz signal back to Auto resolved my issues.

    My network provider is Comcast.

    We'll see how long this lasts

    I'm seeing this problem with YouTube on my Nexus 7 at home. My DROID Bionic on the same WiFi network doesn't have it. Neither of our laptops do either.

    Netflix works fine on my Nexus 7.

    you can also give PVStar+ a try - it also can play YouTube playlists/tracks in the background when minimized, something not possible with other YouTube players.

    Freedi plays in the background as well, minimized and with the screen off

    Downloaded Freedi online and will check it when i get home.

    I hate that this is an issue for youtube videos on my N7. But somewhat glad i'm not the only one. I'm also someone who has no issues on computer or any other device except my N7.

    Default Re: YouTube app, video lag. Is it just me an my Nexus7?

    I recently purchased a Minix Neo G4 specifically for viewing Youtube videos on an HD TV screen. I admit I'm not one to dig into setting to see if I can tweak something in the software settings to make it run faster, smoother or better, but here is what I found. Youtube videos playing in the Native Adroid Youtube App, act just as you have described they load slow play. buffer, play, buffer, play, buffer...it is very annoying.

    I have tested the same videos in several different browsers and they simply load quickly and play, no buffer, buffer, buffer.

    So it appears the simple solution is to ignore the youtube app and use browsers instead, (Set the Browser Client to Desktop in Browser's settings)

    I have the exact same problem when I use a TED or youtube app. Its annoying that when you buy a device just for video & and up with this problem. Very rarely does it run without stalling.

    You can add me to the list of perplexed Nexus 7 users. I stream YouTube to my dumb TV using a Panasonic Blu Ray without any problem now. But to avoid using that laborious keyboard search function on the YouTube app, I linked my Nexus 7 (with 4.3) to the Blu Ray. It connects fine but when I play the selection, it stutters or repeats every 15 seconds. Why should the videos play without problem when I leave the Nexus out of the loop, but start to stutter as soon as I stream using the Nexus? My speed is always well over 15.
