Now the HDR streaming quality has been restricted to 1080p from the previous HDR (High Dynamic Range) quality of 1440p.   This isn’t the first time when the company has taken any such move. Recently, YouTube withdrew its 2K HDR feature after few months of its proud release. The company cited performance issues behind the move.

According the reports, YouTube received multiple complaints stating scattered and dropped frames with 1440p videos. They tried to fix the issue, but failed to resolve it. Besides their inability to fix the mess, one more reason that led to the recall was incompatibility of flagship devices to play high quality videos.

With the cap that’s effective now, the maximum quality of HDR videos on YouTube mobile app would be 1080p. Stay tuned for more on this.
