Add Video Resolution Selection option for YouTube please

This will be really useful for both those who have data capped Internet Access and those with unlimited access who will always prefer to stream in HD

    ahh i would like to play my videos at a predefined resolution this my internet speed its not good.

  • AlixJG commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would love to cap my video playback at 720p because I use a cellular internet connection and it often goes up to 1080p, then freezes, and goes to crap, finally makes it's way back up to 1080p, and the cycle restarts.

    Jesus it's been how long since people have requested this? & it's a simple request? Just do it Microsoft!!

    I would really like a feature like that considering my internet costs more now and apparently 720p uses the most data. For a while I tried using my T-Mobile hotspot on my phone but it took away my ability to play multiplayer even when I connect back to my home wifi network, so I don't recommend using that method. Anyway, would love this feature considering I fall asleep to YouTube every night. (Which is about 9 hours of 720p which uses up a good majority of my data)

    Data plans at India are costly and capped and thus I am never able to enjoy YouTube on the XBox One. I don't know if it's up to Microsoft or Google who has the ability to add this feature.

    I would like to reduce my data usage. I used to view more but video users are now using higher quality video. I'm running out of data so would like to reduce the quality a bit.

    Very good idea my broadband is limited as I can't get fibre optic where I live

    I really need this for when I'm streaming cricket and football matches, now my net speed is 10mb but the video Quality is like 144 or 240, please Microsoft just add an option, it won't hurt to just add an option :(

    I really don't understand why this was never added, it's something I've wanted since the moment I first watched a video on Xbox.

  • Scarl3tPirat3 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    this would be really useful especially for those like myself who have an xbox one s and want to change the resolution of videos shot in uhd from the hd it plays in by default to 4k.

  • ApartPayload56 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I want to play video at a better quality and i can't.
    I really don't understand why the app doesn't have that option.

  • NobleSaint24 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    when you're watching a video on the youtube app for xbox one, the video fluctuates between 360p and 720p, i would prefer it if i could control it manually instead of it fluctuating automatically, so that i can have it (and lock it) at 1080p

    Guys can u please go vote for upload studio for non gold members only 26 people voted so far and currently anyone without gold can't post gameplay or screenshots on their feed and they also can't save them unless they have gold so they will lose all of it to please go vote it would really help

    We are in a different boat over here. Youtube is sucking all the bandwidth and would like to change settings to lower quality so we can all share our connection.
