How can I get YouTube to play smoothly on a tablet using the app?

Sam K November 10, 2013

I have a 2mbps internet connection. When I try to play (any) video on Youtube using the app, it plays for a while & then gets stuck before playing again.
Is there any way to have a smooth video viewing?

Thanks in advance.

    Scaling is available on any device. I have a 5 Mb connection that slows occasionally ( I live in MX, go figure ) and I have a Galaxy 7 that I use

    Maybe try using the mobile site instead. I do not know how the YouTube app works on Android, so I do not know if it automatically scales down the quality based on your connection speed (this happens on my iPad). If it doesn't, you might have more joy using a lower quality 240p (or thereabouts) video by using your tablet's browser.

    Optionally, have a look at the settings and see if there is a preference for choosing low quality video. Sorry I can't help much more, good luck.
