As stated in title trying to watch anything on Youtube over my mobile devices, be it iOS or Android is nearly impossible.
I'm running 100mb through Cox so I don't think its a speed issue. Problem is WiFi on mobile devices and it is just Wifi. I don't have any issues with laptops or PC using same WiFi network. I've tried pretty much all the common stuff you could do including the DNS change. I called my cell carrier just to be certain but the problem is WiFi related. Some one suggested trying a VPN and voila! Youtube HD videos played instantly, no loading or freezing. Cox, whats happening?
PS- I did mention I tried most things and this includes calling COX about my problem and they have no solution, basically got a shrug after they tried their basic solutions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
First, try a static DNS of 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. ::edit:: See here for instructions on android. Also, have you tried a different browser besides Chrome? Next, try a speed test on the browser and post the results. You can either test in your browser with DSLReport Speed Test or use the Speedtest app.
I’ve notice the same issue on my iPhone and iPad during the past 6 weeks or so.
Happen to try my work around above? I think the issue is how Cox DNS resolves IPv6. Phones (android and iOS) prefer IPv6 because that's how cellular generally works. To the end, when the issue happens, make sure to disable cellular so you know what provider your testing.
