    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to set a YT video so that it always and in any situation plays in the highest quality?

    Thanks

    Sign in to your Youtube account -> Go to account Settings (https://www.youtube.com/account) -> Playback (https://www.youtube.com/account_playback) and tick the checkbox which says "Always play HD on full screen (when available)". I think that should do.

    Edit: I guess I misinterpreted your question. No it is not possible to do that as youtube has the module that I just mentioned about.

    I first thought that you wanted to view any video in tge highest quality only. Which I explained how to. Later I realized that you wanted to upload a video such that it can only be streamed in high quality, which is not possible. Makes sense now? :)
