    The highest resolution my GN4 can get on YouTube is 720P..
    At least on the GN3 I have, I am offered 1080P...
    Have looked and tried several fixes but none work..
    Seems that there are some people with the GN4 have 1440 available in the drop down YouTube menu and the rest of us are only offered 720P as the highest resolution.....
    Anyone experiencing this, or have any thoughts on it????

    There are multiple threads I followed a few and they worked, just search it and follow the instructions very closely.

    It seems to be fixed now and a lot are reporting 1440.

    I did some research and found a solution that worked for me. I did not discover this. Uninstall the update, force stop the app, clear data and clear cache. Then open the app and log out of it. Search for 1440p video and check and see if you have the option for 1080 or 1440. If not, repeat the force stop, clear data and clear cache again. I had to do it several times but I got it to work and have 1080 and 1440. It's a bit finicky. When you watch a video sometimes it'll be a lower resolution but give it time to automatically change to 1080 or 1440. Hope that helps.

    Just tried exactly as you said to do, video looks decent, but when I click the three dots to see my options, still only giving me 720p max res option.... re-did the same routine, and still only allowing me 720p. Very disappointing.

    Certainly not blaming you or mad at you in any way dragonsamus. I appreciate any and all help at trying to acquire a higher resolution and I appreciate your input for sure!

    I'm hoping that the higher resolutions are turned on for me soon as well.

    Check out this YouTube video from Samsung filmed in 4k.. Check if it gives you the 1440 option! The option was there for me when I checked

    Probably best to search for that video from the YouTube app instead of the link I left.. It didn't go past 720p when I checked it

    Did you do anything special to achieve that?

    No, I just clicked on the link, which took me to the YouTube application and I just played it, then selected the 1440 mode.

    That's weird! I get 1440 from the YouTube app but when I checked my own link it only showed 720.
