How to watch YouTube videos in HD quality on your phone


As the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the world, countries started going into the lockdown phase. India, too, went into nationwide lockdown. People slowly started moving towards streaming services to beat the boredom. And due to this sudden shift to streaming services, the load on the servers increased immensely.

So, services like YouTube started capping the resolution at which content can be streamed. Many OTT platforms also took the same approach and capped video resolution to 480p (854*480px)
