Trouble using You Tube

Sr. Member

Anyone else having problems watching You Tube videos? I'll be watching one and continuously have to tap the play button. It will run for a while and then go into pause. Very disturbing.

Do you have the smart pause on? It is one of the "smart actions" Samsung has been adding to their phones.

PS mortb, you bought the Note 3? Full price or upgrade purchase?

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Yes, I have Smart Pause on, but my eyes never left the screen. I thought at first that it was a buffering action, but it isn't. It automatically goes into pause at various times. I got the Note 3 at discount price and yes, I lost my data program and have to go for the 2 GB package. No problem for me, at home I always use my wi-fi, and average out about 1.2 GB per month. Too bad Verizon doesn't have a program like the ancient Cingular had...carry over minutes. That would be great.

I have read that the Smart Actions have had issues following the user's eyes if they wore glasses. I know I was having trouble with the smart scroll because of my glasses. In the end, I turned it off.

Normally, when I'm doing anything with the phone, such as surfing, I usually do not have my glasses on. But that is a good point to remember.

I believe I found the culprit. It is Smart Pause. The same thing was happening with my own home videos. I looked around and did shut off Smart Pause. Now, both my own videos and You Tube are working perfectly. Ann157, you were correct.
