Youtube Update is Broken

My TCL roku updated the YouTube app today. First problem is that when I start watching any video the quality is automatically at the lowest standard. So i have to go to the video settings and change it to the highest quality. Notly do i have to do this with every video, The video then constantly buffers. I have to pause the video for a while just to watch a small portion of the video. I have reset the app and my roku and neither have helped. any tips would be helpful.

Re: Youtube Update is Broken

My Sharp also received this update, and I'm watching something right now with no resolution issues. What I am watching at the moment is 720 (still, it's streaming at 35 Mbps). I did load a 4K HDR video and noticed it took a little longer than normal to spool up to full 2160, but I didn't need to switch any settings. Just stopped that video and loaded another 4K HDR and it went immediately to 2160, running about 30 Mbps and slowly ramping higher.
