    Today I was trying to watch a video on YouTube.com on my Wii U... I found out the website no longer plays in HD, its just crappy resolution D: and I refuse to use the stupid app because is super slow. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I remember in previous versions of the web browser we used to have a HD button to turn HD on or OFF during a video... sadly it was removed for some reason, now we are stuck on crappy quality YouTube videos.


    P.D

    Yes I have a PC and a phone and all that, I just like to use my Wii U for web browsing while I pause a game a eat some snacks.

    yeah, the hd option was removed from the web browser in 5.5.3. your only option is to get the app... :(

    When using the youtube program, other games/programs need to be closed.
    On the web browser, you can play a video and still surf on other tabs.

    try google dns on your wii u internet settings

    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

    don't know if that's the solution but you can try.

    That kinda sucks tbh.
    I do prefer watching YouTube on my Wii U with the app, since I do have some internet connection and WiFi to use the app.

    If it's truly a change in the browser, you could always downgrade (remove + reinstall) it... preferably after installing Haxchi or CBHC

    Not cleanly (with the usual title managers... though one could certainly be made), but you can simply remove the files and replace them via FTP (or, I guess, wupserver)
