Trying to figure out how to watch high quality YouTube videos when you're on 3G? The iPhone is a great device for watching videos on YouTube. However, if you're on the go, the built-in YouTube app reduces the quality of the video to save data.
One common way of bypassing this quality-reduction is by jailbreaking and using an app like My3G, but what if you're not on #teamjaibreak? Luckily, there's a work around that works on any iPhone, and all it requires is the stock Safari web browser.
- Open Safari
- Navigate to m.youtube.com
- Find the video you want to watch
- Select "HQ"
- Tap the thumbnail
- Watch YouTube in its HQ glory.
BONUS: You can add the web app to your homescreen to replace the default YouTube app by pressing the +, and then "add to homescreen"
