YouTube works ok for me.....when it works. Oftentimes, when I select the YouTube App, the TV crashes, and I have to unplug the set and plug it back in to get it working again.
Crashes. Wow. I have not seen that. I have Firmware 1.8.12 and whatever version number of YouTube's latest app release (I will have to check next time and see).
Earlier this summer, the YTA would grab the highest available video resolution and play it no matter if it pauses/buffers many times, such as with 1080p videos. Now, they changed it. It auto-drops down to a lower resolution. I have what is advertised as a 20mbps download connection. That is the burst mode for about the first 20-to-30 seconds or so. It is really anywhere from 5 to 9mpbs after burst. What I want to do is get another modem with 'Channel Bonding' that will allow for faster DL speed per the same connection rate.
Oh, wait. I take that back. Sort of. While I have not seen a crash with starting up YouTube, it has stalled about 2 other times while playing a video, including just the other day after my previous post. It says, "Loading". I wait. Wait. Wait. Long enough. "Exit". Nothing. I then Power Off then back on.
Today, on 3 different videos I selected, the video would not play. It just auto-exited back to TV mode.
This is what I see in the "Connected' Store:
