    I have a LG G2 which is 1080P. But youtube only has a 720P option. I'm now running cyanogenmod and it still does this. I would love to be able to view youtube videos in 1080P! Anyone got any ideas on a fix?

    It depends on the video. Some videos are only up to 720p... Whereas others are 1080p.

    No, its for all HD videos. Its always done this on my phone. I can watch a 4k HD video and it still won't have the 1080P option. Its like the app thinks my phone is 720P.

    Have you ensured you have the latest update of YouTube?

    Thank you Almeuit. I tried it on my Nexus 5, and did not get the option, and on my G3, and did get it....both as I had expected.

    OP: I remember this being discussed in the N5 forum and as far as I remember nobody had the 1080p YouTube option.

    Also OP... If you simply just don't see it the YouTube app for your phone may not allow it. The screen can be 1080p but the app has to be updated to allow that kind of play. The G3 recently got an update I believe of finally support it since it didn't right off the bat.

    YouTube is in the process of updating/rolling out an updated video player that can play 1080p content but it's a slow rollout that is taking time. For any questions please contact Google. ^DT

    You wouldn't happen to have a D801 would you? I've been trying to figure this out for weeks and haven't found an answer. I've seen it mentioned in a few places that T-Mobile versions of certain phones don't allow 1080p youtube playback. The funny thing is that I can't see the the 480p option either. It's Auto/240p/360p/720p and that's it. T-mobile G2.
