Windows 7: 1440p videos shut off at the 10sec. mark every time.

18 Mar 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.
1440p videos shut off at the 10sec. mark every time.

I asked this about 6 months ago and got no responses, but perhaps with the prices going falling on high-resolution monitors, someone has found a solution to this minor issue.

What happens is that when I click the full screen mode for a YouTube video that has up to 4k resolution available, it goes to my native 2560x1440, but at the same spot, on every high-res video, the video will drop the resolution to 480p and exit full-screen mode. I then have to stop the video, change the resolution, and wait for about 20 sec. for everything to catch back up and the video to start playing. No problems after that.

I'm not that hopeful, seeing that I got no responses before, but I thought I'd try one more time. I realize that this is a minor issue, and not exactly something that would affect more than a tiny handful of people.

When you start it and it goes full screen if you pause it first and let it buffer does it still drop back down? Lastly what is your internet speed as stated by by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test, it takes a lot of bandwidth to stream 1440p and twice that to stream 4k smoothly. The 620m most likely cant keep up it's dropping to 480p to keep playing but why it is dropping out of full screen I do not know. Does it happen in other browsers besides Opera?

I've just done a 4K YouTube test. My max d/l speed is about 55Mbps, and looking at this screenshot I'd guesstimate that 30Mbps is the minimum for smooth 4K playback. Even though the OP's monitor is 1440px, the stream is 4K.
