Kodi youtube extension parameter quality 4K?


#1

Hello, I find the quality of videos is bad since the Youtube extension. In the settings, I do not see the possibility of activating 4K and HDR. Can someone please enlighten me?

This is not CoreELEC issue, you need to install and configure MPEG-DASH for 4k/1080p YouTube.

Also, since YouTube is using the VP9.2 codec for their HDR content, HDR will not work on CoreELEC.

Thank you.

  1. I find not the MPEG-DASH extension in the extension browser in Kodi.
  2. Why Kodi do not support the VP9.2 ?

#6

You need to install inputstream.adaptive
Kodi supports it, but HDR is not enabled when VP9.2 content is played.


#7

It is already installed and set to max.

Don’t know. I’m able to get 1080P with inputstream.adaptive, not sure if 4K works with it on YouTube.

Guys this might be somehow a silly question, but what exactly should I enter in these fields of InputStream.adaptive / MPEG-DASH to enable and get >720p in YouTube ? My TV is only Full HD (not 4K). Are these OK ?
