Did anyone notice that YT app sometimes (regardless of battery %) will not switch to max resolution available?

Like you are watching a video that was uploaded 1080p, but the app wont auto switch to it, instead stay in 480 or 720?

p.s- My Wifi is 100% signal strenght and over 350Mbps.

There was a recent post from a member who was experiencing something similar to you @Venom7000 

 

i.e the phone wouldn't let them switch up the resolution higher via the YouTube App !

 

I checked on my Note and it allows it without issue.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I have no affiliation with Samsung.

Thanks for the reply.
I dont quite have the same problem. They wrote that they cant switch manually to higher res.
I cant make the "auto" function work to set the highest resolution once it buffers enough.
If I wanted to change res on my own I could do it and the YT app will allow it

The Youtube App should stay on the highest resolution when you manually choose for ex. 1080p.
Then it should go on with 1080p until you watch a 720p video...

Or if you want try this: Settings 》Apps》Youtube》Storage》Clear Data》Confirm

I am aware of that. 

My problem is that you have Auto option when it comes to selecting resolution for a video.

YT app on auto decides based on: your phone screen resolution , performance,  curent YT server congestion and your WIFI signal/speed.

 

Problem is that when on AUTO the YT app doesnt show the video on 1080p on its own.

I know that I can select the resolution by myself . My issue is with app auto resolution. 

 

If that makes sense?? :smiling-face:
