Summary

This extension automatically changes the YouTube video quality to a user-selected high-quality resolution.

Features:

  1. Select the highest quality by default
  2. Do not change the quality if high resolution is already selected (optional feature)
  3. Allows the user to select almost all available qualities.
  4. It is possible to disable more than 30 FPS frame rates (optional feature). Use it if you don't have a bandwidth problem, but your browser cannot handle high-frame-rate playing.
  5. Use different qualities for visible and hidden YouTube players (optional feature)

Some Use Cases:

  1. YouTube starts at low quality, but I want to watch at high resolution.
  2. YouTube automatically increases quality which causes the loader to appear once per while. I don't want the player to alter the resolution.
  3. YouTube switches to 60 frame rate mode, but my browser drops frames

Doesn't work.

Pomaga też w drugą stronę, bo używam niskich rozdzielczości ze względu na limitowany internet, a bardzo często YouTube automatycznie uruchamia filmy w jakości HD. Bardzo użyteczne rozszerzenie.

Pretty exactly what I was looking for. After Youtube decided to degrade every single video I watch to 480p, this extension is a godsend. Sometimes it takes a little while until it recognizes the degradation but most of the time it is nearly instant. And: no Bloatware, YAY! Works as expected. Can very much recommend!
