Google needs to add an option to be able to set video quality for users who have bandwidth caps imposed by their ISPs. This app defaults to the highest available quality if you close out and return to the app. Once I set the quality, it should maintain that setting until it's changed by me. ISPs are jerks for imposing bandwidth caps. Having apps that let you control your usage is priceless.
The recent update enabled ADs on my TV and you know what? The ADs play at a higher quality than the actual content! And when my poor 2Mbps ADSL line (thanks BT!) can't load the AD quickly enough, I ended up looking at a spinning circle for 5-10 minute before the AD start playing...
You guys must be proud of your 2.4 average rating! Only shows 100 subscribed channels. Apparently there is a limit to number of playlists shown. Users can't mange playlists. There's no shuffle button.for playlists, like there is in the browser version. I use the nVidia Shield. and I'll be upgrading to the new Shield.. This app is way below the standards of an app that plays on this high-end device. Why do developers think it is necessary to streamline the functions for an Android TV app?
Absolutely ridiculous that on top-level hardware such as the Nvidia Shield TV this youtube app is so terrible. Not even 1080p 60 fps??!! My crappy cell phone does a better job with HD youtube videos. I get better youtube with a dodgy Kodi plugin.
This is terrible compared to the normal Android version. It never remembers my playback position even if I leave the video for one second, always have to restart. Not to mention it's very slow to navigate and those ads... WHY is there not an option for me to pay to remove these ads?? Some of them are not even appropriate.
Rubbish when you want to choose a new vid whilst watching one it covers the whole screen and only stays up for a few seconds not long enough to read the title. Just one of many things that are rubbish. You tube app on fire tv is much better. Android tv is being forgotten and left to rot. Back to fire tv for me
