The new version of youtube app has just been released providing the option to custom choose the resolution of the video. However, the only options for our phone are 140p 240p 360p. Is anybody aware of a way to enable hd video to our measly but reliable phone?

Thus far AFAIK, the only way to watch YouTube videos in HD is via third party apps such as Viral Popup Player and OGYouTube.

Are you people running Stock ROM from samsung?

I am running the latest nightly version of OMNI rom for galaxy s2 and all the Youtube videos are played at only 360p maximum. Is this rom lacks any youtube video hardware acceleration issue? or its an limitation with youtube.

Thanks,

I'm on NeatROM which is essentially a stock ROM and the quality only goes up to 360p on the official YouTube app. You can watch YouTube videos in 720p but only via third party apps.
