    Constant WiFi Buffering on Galaxy S3 When Using YouTube

    Hey guys, whenever I use the Youtube mobile app while connected to my home wifi, I get the constant buffering while attempting to play a video, but when I use my laptop on the same wifi network the videos play flawlessly, so obviously it's a compatability issue between my GS3 and my router, my link speed between my GS3 and router is 65Mbps and I'm like 5ft from the router, any thoughts on how I could improve my video watching on my GS3?

    Hmm the app runs slowly for me too from time to time. First thing are the videos in HD? Try using normal mode for a while and see if that speeds it up. Also try viewing youtube on your mobile browser instead of the app and see if it still buffers constantly.

    Thank's for that info, I logged on directly from the browser and the buffering has stopped, I can actually watch videos uninterrupted.

    So basically the issue is with the app itself. Have you checked if it is up to date?

    I'm using the latest YouTube update, 4.2.16 and it has serious buffering issues.

    I've had serious buffering issues with YouTube lately and have tended to stay away from it as a result. Hope you are able to resolve this.

    They broke the latest YouTube app update.

    I have a Nexus 4 & 7, and the app has the same buffering issue. They didn't test it at ALL before releasing it, as it doesn't work on their FLAGSHIP devices. Picture a bunch of people getting Nexus devices (phones and tablets) at Christmas time, and then not being able to watch YouTube videos on it from Day-1. They made themselves look like idiots, and the silence is absolutely deafening!
