You tried man. I’ve always wondered why people will be concerned enough to post but don’t follow up.

John....if you are not on an unlimited plan, turn the "video data saver" off and see if it makes a difference.  Some people are reporting problems with Youtube with the data saver turned on.

As the others have asked, what data plan are you on?  Have you tried disabling the Video Data Extender?  Have you used up your priority data?
