Wink How do I make YouTube videos load faster?

Hey everyone, so i rooted my phone and installed the modded Youtube that plays HD playback videos on my Samsung GS2. It is connected to fast wifi, But its taking way too long to load. On my Dad's Note 2 it loads way faster.

Does anyone have any ideas or tweaks that will make my Youtube videos load faster??

I doubt if its anything to do with the app tbh. Maybe your dads phone which is more modern than yours just has a faster wifi radio(?)

There is a setting to preload videos in your youtube app.

But realistically, funky is right and a newer or faster phone just simply does it better.
