VLC Low Quality Youtube Playback

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

VLC seems to be playing back youtube video at 480p or lower. I already set its preferred video resolution to 1080p and Best available. Is there another setting that I am missing? Below are the comparisons.

Step 1: Run VLC media player and navigate to Tools > Preferences.

Step 2: Under Show settings, select All.

Step 3: Click on inputs / codec tab on the left. Under Track Settings, click the Preferred video resolution drop-down list and select HD (720p)

YouTube videos through VLC (or any external program you can stream it from) will either stream at 360p or 720p, with no 60fps options available. If the video doesn't have a 720p encode then the video really will look bad.

You can get the 1080p video stream, but w/o the audio, so you have to use a program ffmpeg to put them into one container.
