Youtube is not in 2K and 4K? [Solved]

Unread post by SGvagon » 2019-05-28, 14:49

Hello,

there is more problems with Palemoon MSE, because I can't see 4K resolution on Youtube (2K too) . I am using the latest Palemoon 28.5.0 32-bit on Windows 7 PRO x64bit. Max. quality is “only“ 1080p .

I tried clean profile and Palemoon portable too. I can't swith Youtube to 4K anymore :| .

Thank you in advance.

IIRC you need to enable MSE for WebM for YouTube to enable the very high definition streams.

That post is rather old and may not be true for the current 28 version of Pale Moon. I think now both the MSE preferences can be turned on.

It is still valid but less troublesome but it used to be.

Actually MSE for WebM support will sometimes be enabled regardless of the pref: http://xref.palemoon.org/uxp-trunk/sour ... rce.cpp#63. I have this pref set to false, but I can still get the very high definition video streams from YouTube.
