In the Hot Questions feed right now is a question titled What cameos has Stan Lee had?.
Tapping on this question displays the post and then the app crashes about 4 seconds later. Happens for me consistently on this one question.

Update: All embedded videos have been changed to hyperlinks. Post should no longer crash on mobile.
Author of the aformentioned post here. I should probably apologize about that...
My self-answer on that post is a lengthy behemoth, containing over 100 hyperlinked references and around 34 embedded YouTube videos.
My PC barely survives that answer, heh. It's ~41 mb over ~600 requests with a load time of ~59 seconds. It's pretty hefty although yeah, the app shouldn't crash, unless perhaps the device is out of memory.
In the Movies & TV chat, it's been suggested that the videos be changed to hyperlinks instead of embedded videos to alleviate the issue. It's a good idea, since loading 34 videos at once is fairly demanding on any machine.
I just haven't had the chance to sit down and convert every single link.
Funnily enough, you actually beat me to the punch on reporting this. I was planning on asking my own version of this question with the title "How many YouTube videos does it take to crash Stack Exchange?"
