Has anyone noticed degredation in the streaming of videos in the YouTube app? They seem choppy and stop and restart again. I've noticed this only since going to Froyo.

I aven't noticed that. I have noticed that the YouTube widget no longer fully works. If you don't use it for a little while, pressing one of the widget options on your homescreen no longer does anything and you have to delete and then replace the widget onto your homescreen for it to register again.

Anyone have a fix for this? Kind of annoying having to reapply the widget every time you want to use it.

I've noticed youtube locking up\stuttering constantly since I upgraded to v0.3 (I wiped 3x) though this is the only issue I am having with the ROM

Yea it's only this and it has been this way for me since Froyo. I wonder what the issue could be?

I've actually noticed the opposite. On BB .2 I was having trouble with it, but since upgrading to .3 and .4 I am having great performance with the youtube app. No stuttering or lag at all.

Did you do a complete wipe before installing the latest BB? Make sure your backup app of choice isn't installing an older version of the youtube player over the version included with the rom?

Yes I did a complete wipe. Maybe someone can upload the current youtube apk for download so I can try that? The only part of my widget that works is the left side "most viewed" section. I click that and it opens the app straight to whatever video was previewed on the widget. Nothing else works besides that.

Everything else with the ROM works great though.

The widget seems to work fine...until it redraws itself (aka shift in layout). Then dead. Stupid programming error on the original developer. All the Froyo builds I've been on does this. Doesn't seem like a hard issue to fix but I think the YouTube app is closed source? If not I could fix it in about 10 minutes.

If you somehow fix this or find a working version please post it here. This makes no sense why it's not working.

this is why I stay away from rooting; fear of all the issues..

Then why are you lookin in the rooted section? You're just jealous ;) ! Honestly its a bit of an inconvenience but its not anywhere near a deal breaker for me I use youtube on my phone once or twice a week at most
