YouTube is going through a lot of changes so some features may not work very well. To disable auto quality go to your YouTube Account settings>>Playback>>Video playback quality there choose " I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video" option

YouTube auto quality setting is super annoying, it keeps jumping from one resolution to another even after I have set it to playback a specific quality.

Have you tried going to settings and check "Never play higher-quality video" option

Video quality changes because you have it on "auto" to stop it from changing click on the "settings" icon and choose your video resolution!

Looks like the only way is the hard way! You have to manually set your resolution don't leave it on auto because if you do it will start jumping from one resolution to another!!

If you have a good internet connection which most people have then it's not a problem. "Auto Video Quality" is a great feature and YouTube is not going to change it because a few users have a slow internet connection Wink

Agree with you Marcus now the internet has sufficient speed for this feature to work properly, If you are using your neighbors WiFi then it probably won't work very well. Google had done extensive testing of this feature before implementing it on YouTube player Smile

I don't understand why not simply use resolution changer that YouTube has incorporated into their player?

I guess this is the only option available for now. The only reason I use YouTube is because of the music I use it to listen to the music and I don't really need high definition resolution I only need 144p tops Wink

It's not about internet speed it's about YouTube giving the users option to enable or disable automatic video quality if they wish to!!!!

Agree with you Victor! Video quality setting is a cool feature but there is no way everyone will love it so you have to foresee that and add a function that will disable or get rid of Automatic Video quality!
