I know there was already a Topic about this. But I haven’t found a way to comment it since it may be closed already.
As an average user of Youtube, I like watching videos there in HD.
I’ve read that the Western Digital players cannot stream Youtube in HD due to Youtube terms.
However, I know now several devices that are being able to see contents in HD.
The Popcorn players (ex : Popcorn A 300) where you can select btw 360, 480, 720p and 1080p. This is a main competitor to the Western
SONY TVs (models from 2011) got a firmware update to do this. It is now possible to switch btw SD and HD while viewing a content
French IPTVs set top box (ex ISP : “Free” which has now around 5M subscribers), i’m french.
Smartphones, through applications like (iMediaShare)
and I don’t for other products but i guess we can found many others with this.
I’ve just bought the WD TV live knowing this limitation. However I deeply request WD team to reconsider their judgement.
Why other brands can do it or have the right to do it and not WD?
Now High Speed internet is getting very common in US, Europe and Asia. User want to enjoy HD content for sure.
ps: please do not close this thread too quickly and let the users debate on this. Thx
