    The most memorable gaming moment of 2019.

    Personal moments for me are getting 300k views on one of my YouTube videos, buying an Xbox One X and an Elite Series 2.

    Also becoming an Xbox Ambassador and hoping that 2020 can be my big year for gaming.

    Maybe see if I can afford a Series X??

    My Xbox One X struggling on Recent Youtube 4K Videos

    You may have to uninstall the app, Clear local saved games and the MAC address and then install the app again. Is it all 4K videos or just specific ones?
    I dont think uninstall the app will solve the problem . I already thinked about a possivle bug on youtube app on xbox one x so i had a ideia of downloading 1 youtube video on my computer , copy to my external HDD NTFS and run it via media player app . First
    time i run it didnt freeze a single time during the whole video then i run other 1 (a old 4k video that allways worked fine) after that i run the downloaded video again but this time it freeze like it does on youtube app . This prove the Xbox one X is having
    a hard time rendering the video and is nothing wrong with the youtube app it does the same on media player via USB .

    Here a link of 1 youtube video that does that.

    My Xbox One X struggling on Recent Youtube 4K Videos (UPDATED)

    I have my first Xbox ever for about 1 month and im already havings issues with it . My Xbox one X while playing some 4k videos on Youtube app randomly freezes the picture in the video and keep it grey or greenish for
    a few secs while audio keep playing . I have been trying a few videos and looks like the 4k videos that do this are recent the oldest video that i had the freezing issue was uploaded 4 weeks ago .
    This freezing issue is very anoying . Im looking for solution , theres anybody else having this issue ? Is my Xbox one X faulty ?

    UPDATE 1 : I can say the Xbox one X is struggling reason why if go to advance settings in a video on youtube APP and wait the freeze grey /green screen happean i see
    on dropped frames go up 100 to 500 dropped frames (depending for how long the video freeze) .

    UPDATE 2 : I already thinked about a possivle bug on youtube app on xbox one x so i had a ideia of downloading 1 youtube video on my computer , copy to my external HDD
    NTFS and run it via media player app . First time i run it didnt freeze a single time during the entire video (video 4 min long) then i run other VIDEO (a old 4k video that allways worked fine) after that i run the downloaded video again but this time it
    freeze like it does on youtube app . This prove the Xbox one X is having a hard time rendering the video and is nothing wrong with the youtube app it does the same on media player via USB .

    UPDATE 3: 3 days ago i try run it again on media player via USB but for my suprise i was able to run it 3 times (2 in a row) without a single freeze . It
    seems the Xbox One X struggles less on Media player .

    UPDATE 4 : I power cycle once a day my xbox one x , i really need that ppl let me know if this happean on their Xbox one X aswell , only that
    way i can know if my Xbox One X is factory defected . Once again old 4k videos before decembre 7 2018 work fine .
    I've had the issue since before the November update (I was hoping it would fix it) . However , when the video would freeze up , the sound keeps on playing . It looks like you had a dying video card or corrupted driver on a pc . Pushing any button on the
    remote will bring it out immediately . It's worse on new 4k 60p videos , but will also happen with 4k videos at 30 and 24p . Watching the same videos (except the 60p) on my S model plays just fine . Also , sometimes 1440p videos trip it too . I tried watching
    a year old video & it tripped there too . YouTube won't answer & the last posting I was on here was closed by Xbox without warning .
