How To Force 360p Video?

Posted

Is there a way either via a plugin or about:config, where I can force YouTube on Firefox Mobile to always play in 360p? Currently it just selects the best based off my current connection speed. Unfortunately with how sporadic 4G speeds are that can either waste data or refuse to lower quality when necessary for bufferless playback. I know quality selections do exist in the YouTube app but I can't tolerate any ads, period.

I'll look into it along with another I found, really wish this functionality was just built into YouTube Mobile though =\.

Unfortunately it doesn't work for Android & YouTube High Definition has issues with Firefox 57.0.1 which is what my phone has doesn't currently work properly.
