iPhone 5 YouTube HQ

I have the five and I am in a LTE market but whenever I use the youtube app on LTE it never gives me the highest quality possible like when i am on wifi and the LTE contection is more than adaquet. Has anyone else noticied this? its frustrating because its still grainy, but i go on wifi and its perfect. could it be just to limit data? is there any fix?

If you're not afraid to jailbreak once the jailbreak is released there are many, many apps in Cydia that will allow you to *trick* apps into thinking you are using WiFi.

Don't use the YouTube app. Use the website, it loads HQ 100% just save it to your homepage. The app is crap.

The best apps are McTubes and Youplayer. Both these applications allow custom changes such as 320p, 480p 720HD, 1080HD. Youplayer allows for landscape mode which is awesome. Both applications for comments and replies. They do fail at "your" Channel view and information.

Yes but the website uses "HQ" but not "HD", correct?

When I say HD I mean the equivalent of WiFi quality

Yes the i5 can play HD just fine, it has extremely high PPI so it doesnt matter. Mctube is defitnetly the best Youtube app by far though
