    Is there a way to get my S4 to play HD videos on YouTube while on the mobile network (Rogers)?

    I can only play HD YouTube videos when connected to WiFi.

    Thanks

    When ur playing a video on the youtube app, there should be a button that says HD. Once you click it, it will display a red bar underneath the HD symbol... atleast thats how its on my AT&T S4...

    Ya I get that when I am on WiFi, but when on mobile network all I get is HQ, even though its an HD video.

    I've been looking an for an answer to that myself, but what I've found out is that you can only stream in HD if your on a 4G network(at least thats how it works in the states) If your on 3G(i dont know if this includes Hspa+ or not sorry) you wont be able yo stream in HD but rather HQ.

    Yes, i assume its because it'll take a very long time to load a HD video on 3G where as on 4G it takes seconds.
