    Since the first time I opened the YouTube app, the videos have loaded slowly and will play for a few seconds then load then play then load. It's terribly annoying. Is this a connection issue or phone issue? It does it on both wifi and 4g. I do indeed have it loading HQ on mobile as well.

    Really? I have no problems with my Note 2 on YouTube. In fact, it blows my iPhone away, and the quality is incredible. I know this is not a helpful answer, just adding my two cents I guess. Where are you located?

    I just got my note 2 last night and have noticed the exact same thing. The videos are extremely slow to load. They are constantly buffering ever few seconds. This is on wifi and 4g. My last phone a droid bionic weather on 4g or wifi was able to watch the same videos on High Quality with buffering, except for the slight delay before first launching the video. Was hoping it was because I just bought the phone but I haven't seen any slight improvement.

    i was having the same issue on my gnote 2, so i went to settings, then applications, ALL, then clicked on youtube and uninstalled the updates. i then reinstalled the youtube updates from google play (search youtube on google play, then click update) and when i reopened youtube, videos appear to be loading fine. give it a go! hope this works for you too.

    ... and then it started to slow down again. It seems though this is a problem with wi-fi and not just youtube app. I restarted my note2 and wifi router and now i'm getting decent speeds.
