    On the Android Youtube app.

    I watching a Youtube video and it always buffers and stops and i try to the change the video quality from 1080p/720p to 480p/360p and for some stupid reason it does NOT change the video quality setting that i want and sometimes it does work.

    But i don't know why it does not change the video quality that i want and i always have good WIFI internet connection but i still can't watch 1080p/720p videos on Youtube because it will buffer and stop but watching videos on 480p/360p video quality it won't buffer/stop and the loads the video is really fast...

    Can someone tell why it does this? And how to fix this problem and does anyone have this problem.

    I am finding it annoying and it should NOT be happening!!......

    For some reason, YouTube has trouble updating. Usually this causes it to not show certain resolution options at all, but may have something to do with this issue too. I know uninstalling the updates, clearing the app data, then doing update to the current version fixes the selection problem. Wouldn't hurt to try for this one too.

    [EDIT] my reply below is to the OP... from 2 years ago.

    Are you certain your wifi is as "good" as you think? Might want to run a speed test just to confirm. A "good" wifi network should have no troubles streaming 720-1080p smoothly.

    I never had a problem changing resolution though one way or another. As long as the video itself is what I am changing to.
