Recently, while watching a video I'll search for something and it'll lead to "No downloads found" for some reason. Not looking for downloads nor do I have any, and it's not a connection problem either. I've clicked on my previous searches and the result is the same. It goes back to normal once I close and reopen the App though. I tried to 'send feedback' but ultimately won't let me submit anything.

The ads are ridiculous. They can't be skipped, and they're so frequent, I'm basically watching ads rather than the video I wanted to watch. Edit :: they've made ads almost entirely unskippable. Instead of pressing the skip button once to get through the ads, now you have to press "next" off the first ad, and then skip off the second. Or sometimes it won't let you skip the second, or neither at all. I'm not sure what yall are smoking when you come out with these updates, but please put it down.

This is one of my favorite apps. But I can't give it 5 stars due to a few bugs. The comments section of videos freeze up and I cannot scroll up and down them if I have the app open too long. Also, I'll open a video and there'll be no sound. And rarely, the video screen blacks out. I have to close and reopen the app or video to restore these. It shouldn't be happening at all though. You should also implement a way to play playlists in reverse.
