For some reason I can't play HD quality videos on my z1s... It will play on standard quality but once I select HD it errors out and won't load. Is it just me or are you guys having this issue as well? I Tried clearing cache, data, force stopping it. Same thing. I haven't uninstalled the update. Might have to try that next. Any suggestions?

If you have the latest version and is not working then yes, you should uninstall the update and try again with the older one. If the problem persist maybe is the bandwidth of mobile phone weak.

It's YouTube. Uninstall to revert back to the original app and it plays fine.

It's 100% definitely the youtube app and it kind of pisses me off a little too actually because yes like stated already, the older version works fine but the most updated version causes the problem and I'm sorry but on a high end brand new device, I expect to be able to run the latest most brand new updated apps, especially ones as popular as youtube! I just purchased my Z1s but I also own a note 3 and YouTube works fine on that phone. I love my Z1s a lot and realize it's the app and not the phone but youtube needs to issue an update and resolve this issue so their latest version of their app works with all of the latest flagship devices! I've emailed them already about it and still no response even, let alone an update.

Thanks. Glad I'm not the only one. Seems weird if you ask me.

Info 2 Youtube Hd on 3g/Late/4G
The current. Youtube app doesn't allow you to play any. Hd videos on 3G or 4G/LTE

There is a hacked older version which does though

Really? I was thinking that since my gfs HTC one won't either. It plays fine in my s3, but then again it's rooted. Maybe that's the case? Oh well.

What is the highest resolution you can play?
I seem don't have issue playing YouTube HD. I am just playing some testing 1080p clips such as Nvidia or THX on my Z1s.
My YouTube version is 5.3.32
