Sounds like an app issue. Try uninstalling it and reinstall

Hi Jonathan, Try the method Dennis suggested and use Wi-Fi whenever possible instead of mobile data. Watching videos on Youtube will eat away at your mobile data.

To elaborate, you can burn through your 1 GB in well under a day. I wouldn't advise using mobile data for any video watching. I did it once while travelling (I wanted to watch the Roland Garros finals and I was in Montreal without WiFi). In an hour I burned through 1.5 GB of my 2 GB, and it wasn't even in HD.
