    Default YouTube app: HQ? Why not HD?

    I use youtube mobile app a lot and I notice that I only have HQ as in High Quality but I used my aunts vzw s3 and she has it as HD, why don't I have that option?
    P.S. I only have HD when I'm on wifi

    I'm pretty sure it's just syntax.

    I don't know.

    Anyway, I prefer the app Viral, it let you select any available resolution for a video.

    I've been noticing that too. I believe it started happening with the latest major update to the YouTube app.
    I would have to go on my tablet to get the HD option.
    Recently I've been able to select HD on certain videos. Not sure what caused the lack of HD.

    Thanks for the tip on the VIRAL app. I downloaded the pro version of it. I have my video quality set to 720p with a screen ratio of 16:9. The video quality is much better than on YouTube. Again... thanks!
    If my post helped you out...PLEASE be kind and hit the THANKS button.

    In Youtube App there is a setting to enable HD while on the Mobile network. Tick the checkbox in "Three dots->Settings->General->High quality on mobile".
    Also when the video is playing, clicking on the 'Three dots' and it lets you select HD.
