YouTube is the second most popular website on the internet. It’s a great resource for watching videos, and many people use it to learn new things and stay up-to-date on current events. In recent years, YouTube has made some changes to its video quality that have left some users unhappy. Fortunately, there are ways to increase YouTube video quality in 2022. In this blog post, we will discuss the best methods for doing so!
How to increase YouTube video quality using the YouTube app
Step 1) Open the “YouTube” app. All the steps mentioned are the same for IOS/Android devices.
Step 2) Pick a video you want to watch. We chose the MKBHD video.
Step 3) Click on the “Settings” icon in the top right corner of the video.
Step 4) Click on the “Quality” option. It currently defaults to 480p.
Step 5) Select the “Advanced” option from the menu.
Step 6) Pick the best you think you’ll like. We suggest 1080p for mobile phones. But, if your internet speed is good, then you can pick 2160p.
Step 7) Now your video will start playing in your desired video quality. Wait for 5 seconds for the video to load in the quality you choose.
What is the default Youtube video quality?
The default quality for Youtube videos is 720p. However, you can change the video quality to 1080p, 1440p, or even higher depending on your internet connection and the quality of your device. If you have a slow internet connection, you may want to lower the video quality to avoid buffering issues. You can also adjust the video quality settings for individual videos by clicking the gear icon in the bottom right corner of the player window.
Can I set a default video quality setting?
Yes, you can set a default video quality setting in your account settings. To do so, go to your account settings page and select the “Default Video Quality” drop-down menu. You can then choose the video quality that you would like to have as your default setting. Please note that this setting will only affect videos that you watch on YouTube; it will not affect videos that you watch on other websites.
How does Youtube increase or decrease the video quality?
The answer to this question is not as simple as you might think. There are a number of factors that come into play when YouTube determines the quality of a video. Let’s take a look at some of these factors.
One factor is the resolution of the video. The higher the resolution, the better the quality will be. However, YouTube also takes into account the size of your screen. If you’re watching on a small screen, YouTube may decrease the resolution to make sure that everything still looks good.
Another factor is internet speed. This one is pretty self-explanatory the faster your internet connection, the better YouTube can stream videos without buffering or interruptions.
Finally, there’s also something called “encoding.” This is the process of converting a video into a format that can be streamed online. YouTube has to encode every single video uploaded to the site, and different videos require different levels of encoding. A high-quality video will need more encoding than a low-quality one, which means it will take up more bandwidth and may require a faster internet connection.
All of these factors come into play when YouTube decides what quality to stream a video at. So if you’re ever wondering why your favorite YouTuber’s videos look so crisp and clear while yours are pixelated and fuzzy, now you know!
