Why is the Quality of My YouTube Video Keep Changing?

YouTube adjusts the resolution of your video according to your viewing environment to provide you with the best possible viewing experience. You might observe that your video quality varies while you watch videos because of these factors:

  • If you have low internet speed, your videos may go back to low resolution.
  • If you are playing large videos like movies or podcasts which work better with videos of higher quality, your resolution can change midway.
  • If the video was shot in an original format from a low-resolution camera, high definition will not be accessible.
  • Some browsers do not support the latest video formats or options for quality which changes the quality of YouTube videos.

Can I Change YouTube Quality Permanently from App?

No, YouTube does not support permanent changes in video quality from either browser or app. You can manually change the quality anytime you watch a new video.
