Re: YouTube Shrunk

Thanks! This solved the problem (for now)
Wish this thread had come up when I searched for it, but it didn't- so I posted a whole new thread about this same topic.

Youtube only 1/4 of screen?

All of a sudden, Youtube will only play on the lower left quarter of the screen. If it plays at all.  Or the video will play full screen sized, but the righ half of the screen is blacked out. This just started happening, and now that I uninstalled and reinstalled Youtube it barely loads at all. I kn...

Re: Are you annoyed with Netflix channel changes?

Odd, I haven't had any of this auto-play nonsense on my Roku box. Maybe cause I have the Roku 2 which has been declared a "dinosaur" so Netflix doesn't bother making these awful "improvements" to it.  My tablet is a different matter entirely. It has some of the auto-play nonsense...

Re: Why Does Youtube Crash the Roku 2 EVERY TIME?

Is there any way to get the old "bootleg" youtube app again?

Why Does Youtube Crash the Roku 2 EVERY TIME?

Every single time I try to use Youtube, the Roku crashes. Sometimes if I just let the video play it can get to the end, but I don't dare pause or rewind. Oh no. Only the "legit" Youtube has this problem. The bootleg version worked perfectly until they took it down (of course). I guess Goog...

Re: I am using NETFLIX less and less nowadays...

Wow. Netflix is the main channel that I watch, Fox News is a close second followed by Amazon. I haven't needed cable for maybe 5 years now. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Kimmie Schmidt, and House of Cards are all great shows (I think they're all Netflix originals). So is American Horror Story (which isn...

Any GOOD streaming Radio channels?!?

Lately TuneIn is terrible- it can take 10-20 minutes to buffer. I tried Shoutcast but they don't have any of the stations I listen to, or anything even remotely similar. Are there any other web radio channels for the Roku? There isn't a category for it so I don't even know what to search for. I list...

Tune In support is useless?

Sometimes it works, but not tonight. It buffered for about 10 minutes before it played anything even though I have a good internet connection. I clicked "report a problem" which leads to "help". "Help" just says to go to tunein.com/support. Well, their "support&quo...

Re: Roku 2 freezes every day

By "Sound" do you mean Settings- Audio- Menu Volume(off)? Just need to make sure cause I've been having this same problem the past few months, and it almost never crashed before. I have the 3100x Roku 2 XS with version 7.0 build 9044 Hope this fixes it. I removed a bunch of new channels ca...

Re: Comedy Central

I had the same problem with Comedy Central- either the free videos wouldn't play at all or they'd lock up every 5-6 seconds and have to buffer for several minutes for another 5-6 seconds of video. I know my connection is fast enough to play videos cause Netflix works- so does Youtube, Fox News, etc ...

Re: VUDU videos will not play at all

I may not re-install it for a few days. My Roku box has been crashing every single day since I installed Vudu. In the several years I've had the Roku box it only ever crashed about 4 times before the past month- now it crashes once per day!

VUDU videos will not play at all

Even when I set them to SD, the lowers quality, it just loads and loads forever without playing. A 3 minute preview video failed to load after 15 minutes! Vudu itself takes forever to load. From the time I click the icon on the Home screen to the time the spinning ball stops is usually over 5 full m...

Comedy Central keeps freezing

Just added the Comedy Central channel to my Roku, but videos keep locking up to buffer every minute or so. I have a DSL connection that works just fine for Netflix, Youtube, Fox News, and almost everything else but not CC. Is there a way I can stream at lower quality so it'll play smoother? I couldn...

Re: Why is Fox News loading so slowly today?

Thanks. I tried the Speed Test channel. Not exactly sure what the data means, but I'm 10 miles from the server and it looks like I get about 117 kbytes/sec. I know DSL is slower than cable or FIOS, but FIOS isn't available in my area (and cable is absurdly expensive). Two people can't stream videos ...

Why is Fox News loading so slowly today?

Some days it works great, other days it slows down to a crawl- a 4 minute video takes almost 10 minutes to load. Usually this happens when their ad gets stuck loading, other times it happens for no reason. I have a decent internet speed, and nothing else is online except the Roku box. Any idea? I ha...
