Really bad Youtube quality on Bold 9700

For the past few days I've noticed the quality of Youtube videos has gone really bad. I am using Wifi, but have noticed the quality is similar to what I used to see when not using wifi. I've tried a hard reset, clearing cache etc. I was told to search for videos through Google, but that doesn't work, instead it takes me to the original Youtube page/link. (Video has to be manually clicked on the page).....what can I do ?

Re: Really bad Youtube quality on Bold 9700

I just reinstalled the OS and the BB app has appeared on my home screen again. When I click on that, it takes me to http://m.youtube.com/?client=mv-rim as opposed to http://m.youtube.com/index?desktop_uri=%2F&gl=GB which it redirects to if I were to just type youtube.com into my browser.

Long story short, if you don't have the Youtube app, just type http://m.youtube.com/?client=mv-rim into the browser and you have beautiful HQ videos.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for trying either way

Maybe its because I'm typing it in wrong? Example of a video link.
http://m.youtube.com/watch?client=mv-rim&gl=GB&hl=en&v=IUtEz_X_ack
Its a lot better than what I get with Opera but its still nowhere as good in quality as it was before :/

When I click that video link (on wifi) and press play, it seems to be high quality for me

**bleep**. I don't knw why it's not working for me Smiley Frustrated it's really bad, to the point where in that video I can't even read the text on screen because of the blur.

Re: Really bad Youtube quality on Bold 9700

Whilst watching the video, if u press *W* it should bring up the tab menu. Does it say "Video.3GP" at the top for you? I don't remember that being there before the problem started for me.
