I switched from the YouTube app to LibreTube on my android phone, but it’s buffering most of the videos so much that I can’t use it. The same videos work just fine on the YouTube app. Any suggestions what I could do to improve it?

      Actually you just need to switch to a different Piped instance. HLS is only there as a workaround in case of some issue and disabling Piped means you’re loading the videos from YouTube directly. Disabling Piped is gonna solve your issue because the issue is that the instance you’re using is slow.

        Ah, ok I see, I’ll try to find a different instance then, probably good to find one closer to South Korea where I am.
