    I just upgraded from the iPad air and have the new 12.9 inch iPad Pro. When viewing videos on the Internet such as a news website, the video is terribly blurry and fuzzy. It used to be gorgeous on the old iPad air. Is there a setting I missing?

    Maybe video hosted on site is low quality? How’s the quality of local video? Do you have a nice internet connection?

    You could test online video playback performace by viewing a YouTube video and comparing the different quality settings.

    OP, I mentioned in my non-optimized app thread about this same issue.

    I was browsing YouTube using safari with the units from Apple Store and even 720p video look horrendous on the 12.9".

    Was wondering what's the minimum acceptable quality for a 10.5" and 12.9" display respectively.

    I've been facing the same issue on my 12.9 specifically on Youtube.

    The videos always default to lower quality like 480p and I have to manually switch it to 1080p.

    I can't seem to find a setting which would make it default to 1080p

    Can I check if 720p videos look bad on 12.9" full screen?

    For me, 720p is the minimum acceptable quality for my iPhone 7 plus and iPad Pro 9.7", so am wondering if I do upgrade to 12.9", is the minimum acceptable now 1080p?

    Why not post up examples so others who aren't having these issues can see what you're talking about.

    And dumb question: you adjusted the resolution "quality" in the app?

    I end up having to change the "quality" for each individual video I watch.

    I tried looking for a setting in the app that would change the default altogether but I couldn't locate it.

    I
    In your case I believe it's YouTube app issue.
    They seem to be prioritizing fast loading using smaller resolution in the latest update.

    I am seeing the same behavior on my end.
