It's getting worse and worse

Update as of June 22nd, 2017 - I have a 150mbps download speed and receive a solid 80mbps to my phone. This excuse for a video player will default to either 144p or 480p almost every single time. It's so laggy and I can't believe how terrible they're doing at their job of fixing the problems.

Update as of April 3rd, 2017 - I said it couldn't get any worse but they made it worse. Now if you have the app open it lags everything 5x more and pressing the settings button on a video now makes a dumb scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. Oh also, they now HIDE and quality options higher than 480p to save money.

What the hell is happing to this app? They keep pushing updates which remove key functionality features and add random unnecessary stuff which just breaks the app. With this newest update it takes 400ms+ for your tap to register and the video skips around whenever you misclick. Please revert the app to how it was a year ago.

This app crashed three times in the last 20 minutes.

I appreciate the app, but I found one fatal flaw. When ever I want a playlist, such as the eight bit guy restorations playlist, the app will crash. This is happened to me three times in the last 20 minutes, and it is starting to annoy me. I can figure that it will send anonymous crash reports but I wanted to post this review so other people would realize how annoying this bug is. Please excuse the spelling, I'm using dictation, and it feels like always. Please fix this bug so I can go back to watching restoration videos sorry, it fails like always.
Emulated Excitement.


Hey the app is not bad... it gets the job done. But there's been one bug for the longest time that has never been addressed for some reason.

Bug: after leaving the app and switching wifi or something (not sure exactly when) but it always says "no connection" when I click on a video. But I do have connection. The list of videos refresh and thumbnails loads too. But it doesnt let me click on a video because it thinks i dont have connection. I leave LTE off for yt. Which might be related to the bug. I need to close the app completely and reopen yt for it to work again. Please fix this. It's existed for years now... Thanks.
