    So I'm getting a bit sick of this now so thought I'd ask here.

    I have a Google Pixel C and whenever I view a YT video I get no quality options, so it defaults to some low res crap that is really annoying. Doesn't matter if I choose to view it in the desktop mode via chrome or whether it's direct from the YT app, I can't view vids in high quality.

    Any ideas how to fix this as it's doing my head in now.

    Ta.

    Do you get the three vertical dots top right, when pausing the playback?

    As above, pressing the 3 dot menu button on the top right gives me this:

    Is that both on phones? I don't get any dots in the top right.

    I get three dots on the video where it says 'Add to - Share - More' but when I press the three dots next to more the only options I get are report, transcript, statistics, add translations.

    Just tried on Note 4, as said when the video is playing top right 3 dots gives quality options.

    What version of Youtube are you running?

    I didn't know there were versions, 99% of the time I use the desktop version through chrome.

    As above, use the app, the mobile site is incredibly limited on video controls compared to the app.
