Youtube alternative?


Deleted User

Hi guys

I am getting really annoyed with the Youtube app problem, "touch to retry" error. Once that error comes up, it restarts the video. I have cleared the data cach, and that has stopped the error coming up as often, but when I run out of 3G signal, the error appears and restarts the video when I touch the screen. Just wondering if there is an app so I can watch Youtube videos, that just maybe pauses when 3G go's out, even if I have a "buffering" message, then starts again at the same point when 3G becomes active again. Does that make sense? lol!!

I am getting really fed up with Youtube on Android, its ridiculous. Every video does it. I clear my cache evry time it happens, but still the same. I tried viewing straight from the internet site, but same there too. I have used 'Freedi Youtube Downloader' and seems to work great, but for some reason its not a very good search function, cant find certain videos. And pretty crap when your wanting to watch things on the go without waiting for them to download each time.

Remove avi files from your device. This is what i noticed... after playin an avi file, my mp4 h264 playback was choppy. I restarted to find everything ok. Played avi, mp4 gone! If u wanna use mp4 h264, stick to it completely or else go for only avi ones. This solved my youtube issue too! I searched all forums but no help. This is what solved my problem. Hope it works :)
