    Streaming issues (youtube)

    Hello

    I'm having great trouble trying to stream different videoclips from youtube and other sites.
    For starters it takes forever for the stream to begin, and once it has the buffering tends to stop at different parts of the clip.
    I first thought it was my connection being dodgy in general but i have a galaxy S2 and a samsung tab 10.1 hooked up to the same WiFi and they have no issues what so ever.
    I've tried streaming the exact same clip on all three devices at the same time, the galaxy s2 and the tablet both load and stream instantly, without any hickups, while the galaxy nexus just takes forever or doesnt stream at all.
    I'm using static IPs on all three of them and i've tried swopping the IPs around, but still the galaxy nexus is the only one struggling.

    Any suggestions as to what could be the problem? I can't see how it could be hardware related, and hopefully its something that can be sorted with a quick and easy fix.

    Thanks for any help its much appreciated

    [EDITED] i just realized its not only streams that are giving me trouble.
    I just tried downloading a 3MB app, it instantly jumped to 18% and now its been stuck there for like a minute... perfect WiFi connection

    I am having the same problems trying to stream video on youTube. It's driving me CRAZY!
    It plays for maybe 2 seconds, then buffers for 30 secs, and so on.... Useless!

    same issue

    I've had my GNex for abt a week now. Am also facing the same issue. Takes forever to load a video and buffers irritatingly.
    If anyone figures out a response, it'd be appreciated. I'll do the same.

    Thanks.

    I've been having the problem since i bought my phone recently.
    What i did was to clear my search history in my youtube app. It works fine now!
    Good luck..

    Hi,
    I had the same problem it was so disappointing. I did the following and it worked. In the youtube application, I click on the 'preference' which are 3 small vertical squares top right corner, then i clicked on 'settings', then 'general settings', and i checked the box 'High Quality on mobile'. By default it is not checked. After that I did not see any problem with the videos. Try it out.

    Buffering is becoming a nightmare, using wifi on different modems, on different places or using 4G, with speeds from 15 to 20 Mbs on all of them, videos start ok but in less than 20 seconds it stops for buffering, and stays there forever, worst thing, I even use the lowest quality available ( what a waste of a 720p screen) and still take for ever, then maybe play for 10 more seconds and again stuck buffering for minutes.
    Clear history, checked and unchecked the HQ in settings and nothing changed. So frustrating.
