YouTube videos missing quality options on this browser

YouTube videos are available in many formats and qualities. But, some browsers do not support newer video formats or quality options. This restriction means these browsers may only have one or two video formats to choose from. We recommend upgrading your browser or operating system for the best viewing experience.

Below are some browser and operating system combinations that support YouTube's high-quality video formats:

  • Google Chrome (all operating systems)
  • MS Edge 
  • Safari on Mac OS X 10.10 or newer
  • Firefox on Windows 7 or newer and on Mac OS X 10.10 or newer

Note: All qualities may not be available on newly uploaded videos.
