    Low Youtube quality

    by sergeje ·

    Tags: 

    Hi, I’m using a laptop (Windows 10) that’s plugged into my router through a chord and my internet speed is over 90 Mbps (Ookla Speedtest). Yet, when i watch videos on Youtube (Google Chrome) and want to watch them in 1080p, it constantly switches automatically down to a lower quality (360p or 480p) as if my internet speed were lower. When I manually switch back to 1080p i ofter works perfectly for
    a while. Does anyone have an idea why my pc/browser chooses a lower quality and if there is a way of fixing it?

    Thanks in advance 🙂

        I totally agree with you said. The only reason the player downgrades the vid quality is due to slow internet connection.

      YouTube’s video quality automatically changes for you, but not always in your best interest. There are times when the site will select a lower-quality video than what is available to make it easier on your internet connection or screen size; unfortunately, these moments don’t come with any warning and can be disruptive to anyone who doesn’t know how YouTube does its thing.
      My best recommendation is, If you want to watch youtube videos in chrome with the highest quality by default, just install a chrome extension called “Auto Quality for YouTube”.
      From there, you can select the default quality you prefer for youtube videos. I hope this helps!
