What's New in Version 10.11.11546
Stabilization and minor bug fixes.
I have used this app for quite a while without many problems but recently this app has stopped working almost completely. It freezes up constantly and when I try to play videos, there is a black screen every single time and the video never shows. The audio works sometimes. I have restarted my iPhone, deleted the app, and re-downloaded it but this problem still exists. Even before these problems, if I fast forward or rewind during a video it buffers and freezes and I end up having to exit the app and restart. I have also had an extremely annoying problem where it won't let me lock my iPhone with a video playing. Now I cannot go jogging and listen to music with earphones because it won't let me play it in the background on the lock screen! It used to let me do this and I don't know what happened. The constant freezing and black screen has only been happening in the past week. Everything is up to date and this could be a result of a recent software or app update, I don't know. This problem NEEDS to be fixed!!! I cannot even watch videos anymore.
Everytime I pause a video, or skip forward or backwards in a video, the video will start buffering for some time, and soon crash. Also, the transition to full screen is horrible. I turn off my lock screen, and tilt my device to make the video full screen, but more often than not, I am sitting waiting for the video to become full screen. If I tap the screen-expanding button, either the video takes a long time to become full screen, or the app crashes.
Often while I am watching a video, the quality will change (become worse) and the audio will be playing, but not the actual video.
The swiping action to exit a video becomes laggy after being on the app for over 10 or 15 minutes, and sometimes stops working.
The flaws I mentioned are extremely irritating and annoying. This is also one of my most used apps, and I would GREATLY appreciate if using the app was enjoyable, considering I use it so much. If this is such an "essential" app, it should be functioning much better.
This is terrible! I used to actually be able to watch videos with this app. Yeah, there were bugs all over the place but I never suffered any of these crashes like others. Now when I play a video it goes to a black screen the whole time and sometimes plays the audio. If I rewind at all the video says "playback error". The new update didn't fix this and it's a very recent issue. I have a iPhone 6 incase that helps if the monkeys who run Google learn how to fix this app, more or less read this review.
Edit: In an attempt to fix this I deleted and reinstalled the app. Nope, still broken, and I found a bug that crashes the app. I tried changing the quality as a desperate last attempt and the app crashed. I really don't know how Google has had so many issues with this app for over what, two years now? Three maybe? However long this poorly made port has been around. Stop putting in mixes and make your app function, and function properly at that!
