    One of the major issues with Windows Phone is video playback. By video playback i mean all internet content. YouTube video's and everything that's not downloaded to the phone loads -really- slow and even the best YouTube clients lag a lot in the beginning, it's extremely annoying. It could just be the single-core, but what do you guys think? I have an HTC Titan.

    Might be your internet connection, also YouTube usually loads slower than other video sites because of the load on their servers so it isn't WP.

    That sounds like data issues. I watch videos all the time on my T2 with zero issues.

    With my old Focus on 3g, I did experience a bit of turbulence when watching YouTube, but the Lumia 900 performs much better.

    Definitely a data problem at your end.

    I watch Netflix on my phone all the time and it works flawlessly. (AT&T)

    We've had LTE rolling out in my area, so I get an LTE connection about 60-70% of the time now, when I have that, it's fast and crystal clear just like on my television or WiFi connection. Actually I've had so many problems with Comcast lately, I've actually been using the phone to watch a Netflix show before bed some nights. My LTE connection is faster and more reliable than my Comcast home internet, kind of pathetic.

    If I'm on HSPA+ it's still not bad, maybe just a bit of graininess as the movie queues up and gets loaded into cache or whatever, but I haven't had a movie pause to catch up or lose significant quality yet.

    Youtube works well the few times that I use it. But youtube has it's own issues. Even on my computer with a very fast connection at work sometimes it lags. That's just youtube being youtube.

    This definitely has absolutely nothing to do with how many cores your processor has. Any smartphone made in the last 5 years with a decent processor and a reasonable amount of RAM can stream video smoothly. Anything outside of that is a data connection/performance issue IMO.

    Comcast having problems? That's unusual, maybe they're doing maintenance or upgrades, here in Chicagoland they're almost flawless.

    Honestly I'm almost certain it's an issue in the lines between my house and the street, but getting Comcast to cooperate and just come out and fix it properly is easier said than done. All they do is keep telling my girlfriend nonsense. They sent one guy out who did nothing, then on the phone they tell her to reboot the modem 3 times a day, replace the splitter, this and that. Everything but actually solve the problem. They have easily the WORST customer service of any company I have dealt with in memory.

    Probably need an amp or all new cabling. They did top the worst customer service lists a few years back.

    Video does hiccup occasionally on my Lumia 900, be it streaming content or downloaded videos. Video playback will slow/stop for a second, and then it will speed up and get into sync again. audio playback not affected.

    All the video I watch on my L900, streamed and on-device, runs smooth as slim. No hiccups.

    It is definitely the phone. I have a great data connection, and I've tested this on 3 Wi-Fi connections and a 3G connection. Everytime the video will either stop, or it will take forever to buffer. It will lag untill it's 100% buffered, and it's really a huge drawback for me. All videos run smoothly on any computer, phone or tablet I've used on the same networks. I use an HTC Titan, and I'm really disappointed that the 1.5GHz CPU can be this slow. In some very simple games, or apps for drawing, it will be incredibly slow, and ruin the application because of all the lag. Hopefully the Lumia 920 will be much better :) I've been waiting for a dual-core forever to fix this, but sounds like it's only the Titan.

    I don't have any issues with video or music streaming over 3G or WiFi on my Focus Flash. I think it is just your phone.

    I haven't had any issues with YouTube on my Lumia, my iPad on the other hand seems wholey incapable of buffering anything from YouTube.

    I would recommend looking at your general networks performance first see if that is the bottleneck. It could also be some issue on YouTubes end. What applications are you using that you have issues with?

    Sometimes I experience problems with my Focus, eternal buffering while streaming. No difference between HSPA+ and WiFi. I think it's the less capable hardware of my phone paired with many apps open (it gets better once I "close" all other apps). Lumia 920 should take care of that :)
