So when I upgraded to .342 I wanted to do a bit of streamlining on my 9900 and got rid of the YouTube app and such. Then .342 really wasn't working for me and I downgraded to my favourite, .267. Since I hadn't has time for YouTube. So this morning I woke up early and couldn't be bothered to go and get my iPad or wake my girlfriend so I decided to watch some of my subscriptions on my 9900. Horrible quality! Like I was watching on 3G. Nothing solved it, even turning off my mobile network. So to cut an already lengthy story short I Loaded the YouTube app again and crystal clear video! A tip to any of you with poor YT quality out there.
YouTube apparently dropped the "Optimization feature" and they try to "auto optimize" for your internet speed, hasn't been working too well, I can watch full 1080p HD videos via the PlayBook and on my 9900 over the same WiFi network I get the terrible 240p stream, pretty sure my internet connection is capable of playing it in the 480p quality YouTube.
