Streaming 1080p 60fps from youtube freezes the app

I tried to stream a 1080p 60fps video from youtube. The video freezes in about 3 seconds of playing. I tried three times with the same result. However, once I set the quality to 1080p with 30fps it plays smoothly.

Do you happen to know what could cause this issue?

Here’s the link to the video: YouTube make sure to set the two quality settings aforementioned.


Hi, is this the smart youtube app?

Maybe @PhilipsEngineering can help here?

Yes it is!!

Can you confirm if it is ‘avc’ or ‘vp9’?
‘vp9’ works better on 1080p@60fps
