Re: Youtube question

Well, that's interesting, that the videos play well on your phone but not your PC.  I would say that's a clue!

Re: Youtube question

Does your PC have a USB port?

EDIT: Also, what operating system does your PC have?

Re: Youtube question

I wonder if you could use a USB wifi adapter. Many work with Linux, and they're not expensive. Not sure what sort of hardware you have to have for it to work, though, but I'm hoping someone here will chime in with some info.

Though I'm not positive of this, I believe YouTube uses adaptive streaming technologies, which means your phone would likely require less bandwidth than your computer to stream a particular video, even when the particular video is set to the same resolution for both devices.
