    Hello. I'm having a very annoying problem with YouTube app after last OS upgrade. The thing is that I have to remove and reinstall the app as videos get laggy after I do some plays. I mean, I install it, videos play smoothly, but after watching some videos (not many) it start to play them with very poor frame rate. It's like any memory leak or something because if I remove and reinstall it plays well again, so I discard my connection.

    Anyone noticed that?

    I got this answer on Twitter @Kristofferabild Thanks for the heads up on that! We'll have the team take a closer look into what might be going on. :)

    Restarting your Apple TV cures it. It gets laggy again after about 7 videos on mine.

    Same problem here. No need to restart/reinstall, killing it (swipe up in tasks Witcher) also works.

    In general I find the YouTube app lacking on many features. Hope Google will improve it over time.

    Well, this team is obviously pretty useless. I still have this problem.

    Apple could help with that just removing the app from the store. I'm sure Google would put more efforts to solve that.

    I have the same issues. It seems that restarting the Apple TV fixes it.

    It happens when I "jump" a lot on videos or when I scroll the timeline.

    You don't need to restart. A quit & restart of the app is enough.

    The latest TVOS update seems to have fixed the problem here.

    Yes. It was Apple's problem and not Google's. I was surprised as it was the only app that had that problem, but it's solved now.
