Youtube app only doing 720p....

It really is a complete cop-out to say XBMC and Kodi are the problem with DASH. youtube-dl can download to a file (it isn't the only thing that can) and is written in Python. Half the work has been done for add-on developers. The remaining half (incorporating passing the video URL to the program or code- youtube-dl for example- which will handle buffering to and playback from a file, then seeking and optimizing that style of caching into something more polished) MAY require external dependencies, and it may not. External dependencies are better than lack of functionality.

It is not XBMC or Kodi's fault and it is not impossible. It is a choice that has been made by those developers of YouTube playback addons. They have the prerogative to build things the way they want to, including avoiding hacky implementations. They are doing a disservice when they repeatedly lie to this community either by speaking without knowing what they are talking about or through intentional desire to hide options they don't have interest in pursuing. Others should not follow suit.
