    Because 720p looks "bad" [language] compared 1440p. With your logic don't use 4g lte and use 2g internet. 2k videos look amazing on the note 4 and i wouldnt want to go back in time.

    First time android user and it sucks I have to apply a fix myself that I don't even know how to do to make some that should be already working work.. Hopefully they come up with a permanent fix without having to all these extra steps.

    Well technically Google removed it (who know why) so it isn't really a bug or anything. They allowed 1080P before but recently removed it.

    I think google does this on purpose to save their bandwidth for people on mobile devices. Too many people on the planet using it at certain times no matter what you're local connection is gets bogged down. They need more servers and open the throttle. Just my 2 1/2 cents.

    For me, all content looks grainy from chrome. Videos from YouTube or ESPN are not clear. YouTube app is good, but only getting 720p.

    This totally worked for me!!!

    "1. uninstall the update of the YouTube
    2. disable the YT app from the APPS screen
    3. close all the APPS including YT or GooglePlay
    4. install again YT from GooglePlay Market by clicking ENABLE then UPDATE"

    Then I just turned off auto update :-)

    I've tried this, i've tried all the techniques in the xda forum link provided earlier (applied both APK files 19 times in 19 different ways) and no matter what I do, i'm capped at 720p. Sucks that I just had my network upgraded and i'm getting 50mbits/s and have this beautiful 1440p screen and yet i'm stuck looking at 720p content. Its a bunch of bull

    I just bypass the youtube app, put chrome in desktop mode and then go to youtube that way to see the videos in either 2K or 4K. Those videos look out of this world on a 2K AMOLED screen....wow....

    right now now I have a note 3 & a note 4.

    I tried all the steps mentioned here.

    Still no resolution above damn720p on note 4.

    On my note 3, I can see up to 1080p.

    Both YouTube app versions on note 3/note 4 see the same: 5.10.3.5


    I think Google disabled high resolution because they don't want people enjoying 2k & buying the note 4 till they've released nexus 6.

    I'm just wondering if the app doesn't recognize the full 2K resolution output of the screen. Maybe if someone has the LG phone that has 2K, they can try the youtube app on there. I bet they haven't come out with an updated app to see our 2K screens yet.

    Ive been doing this from day one and can confirm it works,I'm surprised that more people haven't tried it this way.

    As said the 2k 4k videos look stunning.i would recommend viewing one called Costa rica in 4k

    Google have been messing about with the resolution settings for over a month now.

    I used to be able to do 1440p on my galaxy tab pro 10.1

    Then I was only able to do 720p on all my devices (S5, tab pro and Nexus 7 2013).

    Now I can do 1080p on my tab pro and S5 but still only 720p on my Nexus 7 2013.

    I wish they would just fix it.

    Ok i noticed that my Note 4 only had 1080p HD on 4k videos. I had this problem with my G3 but with the G3 it was a easy fix all i had to do was uninstall updated and install the version of youtube that supported 1440p so i tried it with my Note 4 the same thing i did with the G3 and it worked i had 1440p as i was watching the 1440p video youtube was updating and after the update i could not go any higher than 720p i tried it all i tried to remove updates and reinstall the version i wanted and it did do it but it would not allow anything higher than 720p no matter what i did i even restored my phone and nothing. To fix this issue i had to restore my phone with a clean version no backups and then it worked now i am back to 1080p. Not sure why youtube removed 1440p as my G3 has updated a few times and its still on 1440p and never gives me an issue.

    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...

    Youtube 2K? | Samsung Galaxy Note 4 | XDA Forums

    Hope this helps/works for you. =)
    This worked for me, however playback in 2K and 4k is very choppy, why is that?

    Same here. It didn't always work by using the browser. But every time it did, it was choppy for me as well.

    This worked for me, but I clicked on the link & downloaded to my pc first, moved it to my Note 3 SD internal root, Uninstalled the Updates in Application manager, then installed the apk. It is also, not choppy from my Note 4 at 1440 .... no option above that. BUT, the 2nd time I went to the same video, I only had a 1080 option! Youtube is limiting all of us & crippling apps! Imagine what they must be going through! I now upload at least 20gb a week from my GoPro 4 Black. Before it was about 10gb with my 3+ Black

    Cheers & Good Luck to all, Jon

    UPDATE: For some reason it reverted back & have done all as before & it will not give me anything over 720 on a 4k file!

    Cheers, Jon

    Is it preloading all of the way or is it buffering a lot? If not, it's having trouble keeping up since the bandwidth on 4K is extremely high.
