    Its taking me 15 minutes to watch 5 minute videos...Doesn't matter if im on 3g 4g or wifi...And to add to that sometimes they dont even play. Just loads for minutes...Should i call Tech or is it something im just going to have to deal with?

    I've had this problem too. It doesn't always play a video, or the load time is super long. I even went the extra mile and added a wifi access point near the area I typically watch youtube clips. My phone shows a full wifi signal, but the videos sometimes dont load. Very frustrating!

    I don't really like the YT player. It's sooo slow, and doesn't even let me move around the video. Scrolling leads it to stop loading, and etc., blah.

    Same problems. Mine seems to start and then 20 seconds into the video it pauses or is just stuck. It takes 15 minutes to watch a three to :rolleyes:five minute video.

    Bookmark YouTube and just go to the site. The app's not very good but YouTube's made some improvements that make the app irrelevant.

    The YT widget is even worse. When I open it and try to scroll, it just closes. Fortunately the browser works fine, but Google should fix this...it's a bit embarrassing.

    I agree, it is embarrassing. Really low res and poor looking UI as well.
