Hi,

many people and also myself complained about the low quality of the youtube videos with the youtube app in NetTV. At least those with a TV of <=2010. Those with 2011, are saying it is slow..

If you have an Android or iOS device, you can make use of the Twonky Beam Browser. It is very comfortable and intuitive to navigate and you can beam the videos to your TV with HQ setting on.

The quality is much better than using the NetTV youtube app. Just check out "Philips IFA 2011 Stand Tour". It is provided in FullHD solution, if you visit youtube with your computer.
The thin letters on bottom left of the Philips logo are looking very ugly with the NetTV youtube version. Also if using it, you won't have speed problems.

@Philips: Seems that there is some space to be innovative. Users won't use the poor quality app anymore, if getting better quality/usability so easy. The SmartTV is getting a stupid monitor in this use case...

For Android users, there is also Twonky Video, which is looking interesting. I can't test due to lag of android device.
