YouTube - on 4K

Question

Youtube runs only in 2560 x 1440. No way to change the resolution to 4k. 

 

Just bought LG 50UH5500 4K with WebOS 3.0 and am trying to figure out how to run youtube in 4k with in built app.

 

Has anyone have resolution problem using YouTube on 4k TV? I checked 'more info" and it shows me current resolution of YouTube, which is 2560 x 1440 instead of 4k and there is no option to change the resolution.

 

I have to use web browser and only then i can see it in 4K. However, the default is set to 1080 on web browser, so have to manually change it to 4k evey time i use youtube on web browser.

 

Wish there was an easy way to set defaults and the YouTube app with an option to change the resolution. I do have internet speed of 25 Mbps, which i suppose is capable of 4k.

Mine was resolved after upgrading my internet speed from 25 Mbps to higher. Looks like you need at least 30 Mbps speed which does not seem correct. Since Netflix says 20-25 Mbps is good enough for their 4K content. I had a doubt with their content though.

After increasing my internet speed, I feel Netflix is now in 4K which was not while on 25 Mbps. However, it's hard to find out their resolution since webos app for Netflix does not show the resolution. 

Not sure where the problem lies but looks these webos apps are not ready for production. It's filled w bugs. My google play crashes and freezes or sound stops after watching a movie for 30 mins or so. I repent getting LG.

      Dear all,
      Have my 2 month old LG E6 connected to my amp using ARC via HDMI and i used that to send the audio from Amazon/Netflix/Youtube apps on the TV back to my amp.
      The audio is fine for everything but YouTube, which is out of sync.
      I've tried using the audio sync adjustment on the TV but can't get it right despite the adjustment.
      I've heard others on other forums complain of the same issue with this app.
      Is there somewhere I can raise an issue with LG for this problem?
      I wonder how often the youtube WebOS app is updated, maybe a new one is due soon?
       
      Thanks all!

      How come Youtube videos won't start streaming after I select a video? Could I perhaps delete Youtube and re-install? I have webOS 2.0. Thanks for your reply!

      Hi
        Since YouTube went down a couple of days ago, I can no longer use the YouTube app on my LG smart TV.   Anyone know what the issue is or how it can be fixed?   Thanks

      Hello,
       
      I'am using my 4000$ LG 55EG960V OLED 4K UHD television to view my photo from an USB key and use the diaporama function.
      But i have old photo which are in a small resolution(less than 4K), and there are not displayed in fullscreen so it is too small 
       
      How to automatically upscale photo in fullscreen?  (it was possible with my old 1080p philips television and also samsung 4k)
       
      Thanks you very much in advance.
