    Youtube videos freezing the phone

    So I have this weird/horrible bug.

    I THINK it is only on WiFi but not 100% sure.

    Basically, I would be playing a youtube video (using the youtube app), maybe play several and everything is smooth. Then when I would be watching some random video, the entire phone would freeze (none of the buttons working, holding down power button does not work, just completely frozen) causing me to remove/replace the battery (and this is especially difficult for me as I use an Otterbox Defender case).

    I have had this phone for a month and this problem has only been happening the past couple of days.

    Anybody experiencing something similar? Know what the problem is? And have a fix for it? It is extremely annoying.

    I can't say I've had it happen, but I dont watch YouTube videos on a regular basis.

    About the only thing I can think of is to make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Flash Player by searching the Market for it.

    I don't have this issue.

    Is your phone stock? Any other video apps you have installed that might interfere? Any modifications you've done to your phone?

    I have the exact same problem. Is very frustrating and it happens to me while I'm on 3g or 4g also.

    This just happened to me today. Never had an issue with Youtube before, nor have I ever had a hard crash like that. My Atrix is and always has been stock. I had not installed any new apps between the last time I used Youtube and when the crash occurred, although I had updated a few. I have no idea what could cause this. Very odd bug. I really hope it doesn't happen again.
