Default Jagged youtube videos on N7 2013

Hi all!

I got my N7 2013 some days ago and I cant stop looking at the jagged videos it plays when using youtube and HD, even the best quality channels like MKBHD have big artifacts when looked closely.

I was expecting a quality that would blow me away but I found this:



The thing is that this issue is youtube related, because vimeo or the downloaded videos looks fantastic. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Some people told me that it is the new youtube apk, is any way of getting an older one without root?

PS: Sorry for the big image I cant post links, and wanted to show you the image in full size.

Thanks!

It has been a problem since the new YouTube app came out and they STILL haven't fixed it. You can try to get the old YouTube apk, or just use a 3rd party app like Viral or BSPlayer and "share" the video to it.

It's an old issue but I think it deserves a bump because it's just ridiculous how long they let this issue stay unfixed. What's the point of having crazy high resolution screens on the Nexus devices if YouTube looks like trash?

I have the nexus 7 and I haven't experienced any low quality or artifacts in my videos using the the stock you tube app. Maybe its been recently updated.

Just installed "Viral" and the quality is great. So for me it's only YouTube causing the issue.

It's definitely the YouTube app not supporting proper scaling...

I totally gave up on the official app, as in only using it to share content on to Viral. It's like two more kicks and delivers true 720p. It even loads in that quality faster than the YouTube app, rebuffers less, plays in the background and has a pop-up function.
