Kodi Youtube Addon Not playing 1080P - dheerajpareek10 - 2018-09-02

I have a Panasonic TH-L32C5D Which have 1368x768P and it supports 1080P and 1080i Resolution too.

I have connected this TV with HDMI to my Laptop which has 1920X1080 Pannel and duplicated it on my TV , it detects the Screen as [email protected] Refresh Rate
the problem is that when i open and search through my youtube any video which it shows only 720P at maximum why so ??

Even i have opted the option in Youtube addon that it should ask me which resolution should be played of video but it just don't shows the 1080P , can anyone help ?

>720p in the add-on requires Kodi 17+ w/ InputStream Adaptive

Ensure InputStream Adaptive is installed and enabled, Add-ons -> My Add-ons -> VideoPlayer InputStream -> InputStream Adaptive

Configure InputStream Adaptive; Ignore Display Resolution: enabled, Max. Resolution general decoder: Max, Stream Selection: Auto, may also want to set Min Bandwidth to 10000000 (10,000,000)

Configure the YouTube add-on; MPEG-DASH -> Use MPEG-DASH: enabled, MPEG-DASH -> Use for videos: enabled, and if Kodi 17 MPEG-DASH -> Use for live streams: enabled (the HLS live streams don't work on Kodi <= 17)

I am having the same issue with Kodi 18 (Latest Milhouse Build for RPi3).

@anxdpanic tried your settings but it still maxes out at 1280x720


RE: Kodi Youtube Addon Not playing 1080P - anxdpanic - 2018-09-03

If you configured Min bandwidth try with 0.

If you change InputStream Adaptive setting Stream Selection to Manual, you can change Settings - Video settings -> Video stream to a higher resolution manually from the OSD during playback. In Kodi 18 you'll be able to see the stream bandwidth which should help in adjusting your settings as necessary.

If you enable YouTube add-on Settings -> General -> Ask for quality, the first entry should be the dash entry (mpd) and should be labelled with the highest supported quality for that video. 

Other than that will need a debug_log (wiki) to confirm the proxy is working as expected. 

Please follow up at the YouTube Plug-in Thread
