    Pretty sure older versions of youtube it works, and a few months back they pulled HD video out of the app in an update. Anyone that has an older version of the app can still play it, new versions cannot. Some of these Note 4's might have a version of youtube that was before the update, and if some of you have auto update apps on, it might be updating it and losing the feature. A way to test it would be either uninstall updates on youtube and turn off auto app updates in google play and try that, or if someone who has a working version, can upload the apk here for others to sideload and test.

    I really do not understand people who chase the maximum resolution of the screen, and then wonder why theirs "super-clear" and "super-slim" device loses all battery power for half a day. Or someone wants to say that he sees the pixels at 300dpi (as an example of 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 * 720) on your phone? Really, I believe that it is necessary to stop this "competition resolution screens", and come at last to the same format, no more than FullHD (for devices up to 7 inches).

    My friend actually did it for me. We had a rough time figuring it out why 720 was the top resolution. He asked if I could leave it with him. Several hours later he came by and wala 1080 and 1440 enabled. Said he had to download and install an apk (whatever that is) file.

    Please ask your friend for that file or the steps he used. It would be greatly appreciated.

    An apk is just the extention of the application file... like .xlsx for excel or .doc for word. The youtube app is really an apk in and of itself... so saying you need to download an apk is little on the vague side.

    I also have the same situation. It won't let me go above 720p while my LG G3 will at least let me go up to 1080p. I even tried the old YouTube 5.9.0.10apk that use to allow my G3 to view videos up to 1440p but that no longer works on either G3 or Note 4 Very disappointing and just got my Note 4 yesterday with no footage to test for a screen comparison... At least the G3 came with stock QHD footage, my Note did not

    If you ARE rooted, you can remove/uninstall YouTube, and install the APK file forund here:

    youtube-5.10.1.5

    If you are NOT rooted, you can view YouTube from the Chrome browser, set it to desktop view, then open YouTube from your Chrome browser, and you should be able to view both 1080p, 1440p and 4K (for vids recorded in that mode).

    For more info, and where I obtained the info (from XDA), you can view the thread here...

    I just tried this and it didn't work well. I was able to choose 1440p but the video playback was not smooth. Video and audio was out of sync. And video quality didn't look any different.

    People, the instructions on the link posted above are the exact steps I posted earlier in the link that gets to the same topic over the Galaxy Tab S forum. The only difference is that this new link takes you to download another apk (already outdated) instead of the one on the Play Store.

    I don't have a Note 4 so I'm just entering here once a day, so I didn't see until now that some have tried what I suggested and didn't work. Let me tell you, the first couple of times I tried this with the Galaxy Tab S (same resolution options as the Note 4, up to 1440p) it worked like a charm, last time I tried, last month after an update it didn't work at first. I just kept trying and it finally work and it's still working as up today.

    I remember that what I did was that after Clearing Cache and data and disable the App I force Stopped it and be sured that it wasn't on the running apps list, I didn't re-enabled again from the App itself and just went directly to Play Store and looked for Youtube, in there you will see the Update and Enable I think I just hit update and it updated and re-enabled it, if is not like that, just enable it there and hit update.

    After that I had my 1440p option again, only annoying thing is that everytime you start Youtube, the first video you must go and select the 1440p option and in order to apply it you must restart the video from the same screen,

    I must tell you that my brand new Xperia Z3 also had the issue when I got it last week, highest resolution available was 720p, I followed this steps on it, and it also fixed it, only difference is that just after I fixed it there was a new update last week, and for my surprise even after the update it was still showing the 1080p, where my Galaxy Tab S, every time there is an update I need to do this steps again.
