Why YouTube video is lagging in browser?

You may experience lag and instability viewing YouTube when it is requested as a laptop site in browsers. Switching it to the mobile site version can improve performance.

To request the mobile version of websites like YouTube, go to the top right hand corner of your browser and enter into Menu options. Un-check 'Request desktop site' and YouTube should reload in the mobile version.

Alternatively, we recommend using the YouTube app if you continue to experience performance issues playing from browsers.
