not sure if this is correct place to ask this question. I'm having confusing results with viewing my videos on You Tube.

 

This video was shot with GoPro Hero2 camera at 1080-30 (wide)
Fisheye was removed with Go Pro Studio (via avi and saved ,in Studio, as *.mp4 file
Final editing was done with Power Director 11 and saved as MPEG-4 1920x1080/30p (13 Mbps)
That file was uploaded to You Tube as a *.mp4 file. (Plays on my computer nice and sharp)
I have Comcast high speed internet service. Just did a SpeakEasy speed test on my system + DnLoad= 77.26 Mbps UpLoad= 5.99 Mbps

When I open You Tube to my videos, and play the video, it plays on You Tube at 720p HD. There is no option for 1080p!

 

 I just posted this same video on a motorcycle forum. When I play it from their web page, it shows, and plays at 1080p resolution.

Is there something I'm missing?

I think I know why I'm not getting 1080p. I'm viewing it in IE and unless I'm mistaking, IE will not play at 1080p.

When I had viewed it in Google Chrome, I do get 1080p.

The videos do play at 1080p if I make Chrome my default browser.

 

Which brings up another question. 

Is there a way to force You Tube videos to open in Chrome, but still keep my IE as default browser?

 

If you did view it at 1080p, what browser do you use?

( I'm running Windows 7  with IE ver 11. As far as I know, Win 7 will not allow any IE versions above 11.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

In Windows 10 using Edge it came with 720p on my state of the art system.

Hi larry31,

 

No it wasn't IE    I use Vivaldi as my default(chromium based) 

 

The trouble with opening you tube is you have to open the webpage in your browser(if that makes any sort of sense)

 

Good Luck

Looks like I'll be using Chrome more than IE.
