Re: 4k youtube videos not working ?

Until we get an update, you can use this temporary fix. Start playing  a HD video, then pause scroll left and click more options click the first option which will say HD (highlighted in blue) this is the quality setting in the pop up click on 1080p. Go back out. Doing this will mean next time you play a 4k video instaed of quality being auto selected it will play it back in 1080p and will work without crashing box. Hope this helps.
