I've used YouTube for as long as I can remember, but recently it's been glitching really badly. A lot. My video will be totally loaded so I should be able to watch it without stops, but it keeps pausing for a second to where it's cutting sentences in multiple pieces, and when I tap the screen to pause the video, it's lagging so badly that all I can hear is a broken, fragmented sentence that I can't understand.

YouTube is my favorite website ever! I've been using it for years and never I had any problems. Now, there is a problem. The play and skip buttons. When they got updated, it's been acting up on my phone. When I play a video, the button shows the play symbol not the pause symbol and sometimes the skip buttons don't work. With the old version, I didn't have any troubles at all. Really to be honest, the previous play and skip buttons were better than the ones we have now.

When my phone is upright (vertical) the process bar of a video disappears and won't come back. Pausing, double clicking to fast forward 10 seconds, exiting it and coming back all do not work. I have to turn my phone sideways (horizontal) to get it to work, and half the time I try to rotate my phone, the video doesn't even go to landscape. It's not an issue with a setting on my phone. The video will flip one second, and then it won't the next time I try.
