Hello group,

I have an older model PowerBook G4 running Tiger on a 867 MHz processor with 1.12 GB DDR SDRAM.

When i open You Tube or just about any video playback, the default playback resolution is 360p. I can change the resolution on each playback to 240p, which is low but will stream uninterrupted on my laptop. Is there a way I can go into default settings and change the default video playback from 360p to 240p?  I have tried to find a way on my own and have failed.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Powerbook G4 6,2 12" 1GHz, 40 GB 1.25 RAM, Mac OS X (10.5.8), PB G4 6,4 12" 1.33GHz, 60 GB; PB G4 12" 867 GHz 40 GB

    That setting is governed by YouTube for each video - so the next time you go to the same video the playing speed will have stuck, but there is no general default setting as far as I know.

    YouTube has to work with the raw materials its contrbutors submit. If they get a high-res video, they can post it that way. However, they can't take a grainy, low-res submission and turn it into awesomeness. So it's actually the submittors--not YouTube or Apple--that would have to be re-engineered, and that's not possible.
