    My Youtube videos certainly look as good on my S as they do on a PC, same with other YouTube videos that I've watched on the S.

    You're not comparing YouTube HD videos you watch on your PC, to the ones you see on your S are you? Because the S does not do YouTube HD.

    No, not the HD ones. I am baffled as to what is causing this. Is there any other way to test this, perhaps with other player?

    Do you have Wi-fi enabled?

    My Galaxy S was set to play the lowest quality stream by default when youtubing over the mobile data network, but the high quality version when using Wi-fi.

    Guess it's a bandwith saving measure.

    For anyone having problems on their Galaxy Nexus viewing YouTube videos in High Quality read this:

    I was having issues from the the first day I couldn't get youtube videos to come in high quality - didn't matter if I went to youtube on the browser version - they looked terrible, like I was on my old blackberry -lol.

    The fix for me was when I went into settings>apps and then all apps - then I cleared all the cache and data and presto -- I was able to view high quality youtube videos.

    Hope this helps some people out.
