Sure, if you just play whatever is in the home page without any IP or account history, you'd probably get 75% of the content 75 times out of 100. But that's not how people use Youtube. You know, subscriptions and all that.

Last I checked I think the stats actually break down to something like 90% of Youtube "views" and of course Youtube's money being based off a pool of a thousand or so channels that rotate on Youtubes trending feed. Youtube's trending feed is basically all junk, stupid kids react to videos, some guy slicing stuff with a hot knife, just all junk garbage food for your brain. It's all part of the new Youtube algorithm and demonetization policy, they basically want hyper click bait junk content flowing 24/7. Meanwhile the actual organic grass roots content that made Youtube big, so things like the guy that shows people how to fix a rad hose on their Kia, so actual useful content is being pushed out.

Yes, but there is a lot of content, so the 25% of good content is still a huge amount

I know it is a little out of topic, but Edge still can't run Youtube videos in more than 1080p ? Or there is some kind of workaround ? ty

You couldn't find the answer with Goolge? If found several reasons why >1080p might not work, one being that you don't have VP9 enabled but I have no idea if this applies to you or not.

Another possible solution would be to use their YouTube plug-in:

But again I have no idea if this will work for you or not.
Want to guess where I found these possible solutions?

Mr. 4K and Edge user here..

Edge certainly can do 4k and higher with youtube, for sure. I use edge as my main browser and watch 4K videos all the time.


If you are bandwitth constricted youtube will not show you the option for 4K.




Side note: I am finally going to retire my Lumia 950 but I find android and iPhone so inferior and awkward when it comes to the UI, I ended up getting one of each and I'm going to keep the one I hate the least. As someone that doesnt care about social media or apps, but does use my phone for work A LOT, windows phone is going to be highly missed by me.

I think you have to be living under a rock to miss that google has been playing dirty like this for a long time now.
Agreed, the facts this 'journalist' found the claims surprising says more about their ignorance than anything else.

you can swap Android's UI to Windows if you want.
