Anyone else have to manually to set YouTube quality higher on every video? Videos keep defaulting to 360p even on fast 5Ghz WiFi.
On iPhone XS Max, YouTube Premium, 5Ghz WiFi, fast internet, I keep having to manually increase the video quality. It keeps going back to 360p, 480p, or 720p—all when 1080p is available.
It’s incredibly frustrating.
I have fast internet and a solid wireless network. As soon as I manually increase the quality, it switches to the highest quality instantly (so I know it’s not a bandwidth/connectivity issue).
Is YouTube just being stingy and trying to save money on bandwidth thinking people won’t notice? That’s fine if someone isn’t a paying customer, but as a YouTube Premium subscriber, I’m very unhappy with this experience.
