Feels a little laggier to me than existing apk. Getting buffering issues didn't have before, even st 720p. YMMV.

Update: Tried it again. Seems better this time. Still not quite as fast as before at any resolution but perfectly acceptable given the benefits.

Runs without a hiccup for me on my 8.4. Love the awakening video in 1440p. Thanks for the link

Eye of the storm also looks really good in 1440p too.

Yes. That is more for embedded youtubes than the YouTube player. The YouTube player has never lagged for me, just the embeddeds.

I did a search for 4k movies trailers within the YouTube app. Some of the trailers only let you go up to 1080p for some reason, but a lot of them let you select 1440p.
