Sky Q YouTube App Stuttering Picture


Active Member
I recently bought a Sony A80J TV and upgraded from Sky HD Plus to Sky Q UHD. I've noticed when using the YouTube app on the Sky Q box that the picture has a slight stutter on some videos but not others. Has anybody else experienced this?

Nope, all youtube videos are perfect with my Samsung TV..


Depends on the video!

Yep, some are stuttering slightly and others are perfectly fine. The latest example of a stuttering video being

This plays perfectly fine on the TV's YouTube app. I wonder if something weird is going in the link between the Sky Q UHD box and my TV because of the box being set to 2160p 10 bit.

Just use the built in YouTube app on your tv as you will have a better experience then the one on sky Q.

Sky Q does not match the native frame rate of video played via its apps, so it’s always better to use the apps built into the TV which usually will.
The alternative is to turn on judder reduction for apps on your Q box. This will output at 60Hz rather than 50Hz which can help.
