    Youtube app loads videos very slow on IOS6, iPhone 4S. I can let it buffer for 10 seconds, it plays and then stops because it has to buffer again. I have a 4Mbit connection, on pc the same video loads very fast without problems.

    Same here, I use the web app. It seems to load much quicker than the YouTube app itself.

    Go to settings then stream quality change to ask then when you click on a video that's in 1080p you can choose 1080p or 720p etc

    I think Youtube sucks in general. I have a 30MBPS down connection and still, 1080p videos ALWAYS stop halfway through playing to buffer. This is on all of my Apple devices. Time for a server overhaul, Google.

    This is true for me too. I have a 20 down connection and it stops to buffer... a lot!
