I like to watch videos on YouTube a lot, but even on my home wifi which is fast (xfinity) watching videos in hd buffer and is extremely annoying. My old phone the epic 4g would never buffer on my network when watching in hd. Is it because the one has a 1080p display so it plays videos in 1080p? How do I set YouTube to play videos in 720p by default?
I have a theory that only Android phones running 4.4.2 get 1080p YouTube playback. My OnePlus One is on 4.4.2 and it has it. My M8 had it on 4.4.2, but it went away with the 4.4.3 update (Sense version and GPE). What are you Nexus owners getting?
More particularly, are those of you on the L preview getting 1080p?

I recently bought a HTC one M8,my youtube app used to support 1080p from the options (gear button), after I did a hard reset cuz I faced some problems, now my youtube doesn't support 1080p,there is no longer 1080p option, why? if anyone knows please tell me!
Need to boost your streaming quality when using the YouTube application? Or even lower the streaming quality? Now you can. The YouTube app now lets you choose exactly what resolution to stream content in. From the start, all devices are set to ‘Auto’ with other options sitting behind the scenes (or the cog within the app). There were a few options already but it topped out at 720p.
Dear guys,I noticed that my internet connection (Router and computer are connected via LAN-Cable) is slow sometimes, I notice that especially when using Youtube (on 1080p, sometimes even on 720p). There is no difference between using Youtube via Browser+Flashplugin and watch Youtube-videos as a stream in vlc. "Sometimes" means quite often and based on rules I don't see.
I am using 2.3.5 official update.
720p videos are working fine with MX player with hardware decoding on.
But 1080p videos are not working with hardware decoding. It plays with a lot of lag with software decoding in MX player.
I am wondering if I overclock the device will it play 1080p videos with software decoding.
Is there any other way I can play 1080p videos on this device.
