    Note by Moderator : A max resolution ceiling of 480p is set by YouTube by default for mobile devices.This is on account of increase in usage due to Covid-19 lockdown. This is currently experienced in big cities of India.

    All related communications will be merged in this thread.

    It's due to the lockdown and all OTT providers and youtube have capped their resolution to 480p while on mobile data.

    Read the post above. Lockdown = reduced quality.

    Hi there, thread merged. You tube has capped the quality to 480p max, due to Covid-19 situation. This will be applicable globally.
