Can't play HD videos in YouTube


Hi everyone,

I tried to find anything related to my problem here but couldn’t. I used search tool above, and found only one thread which mentions playing HD in YouTube, but I couldn’t solve my problem.

And the problem is in the subject line - I can’t seem to find a way to play HD videos in TOR browser. I don’t say it’s whonix problem because I can play HD videos in Iceweasel and Chromium. It’s probably TOR related, but I tried in their forums and still couldn’t find the answer. I can only play 360p videos.

So, I run Whonix GW and WS in KVM in a Linux host. If you need any additional info please let me know.



Good day,

As you noticed yourself, this is not the right place to ask this. Ask in one of the many support forums for the TBB. We can’t help you here, as this isn’t a Whonix issue. That’s also why the category doesn’t fit, however I can’t move this thread, as it fits nowhere.

Have a nice day,



Small tips:

  • Please don’t substitute writing Tor when you mean Tor Browser or the confusion will be perfect.
  • It’s Tor not TOR.


Ok, thanks Ego and Patrick. :slightly_smiling:


Hi, tloz. Which player are you using now? it seems that you need to leave the HTML5 beta and return to Adobe Flash Player at some cases for better videos quality. If it’s appropriate, here is the method:https://www.ghacks.net/2013/10/27/youtube-videos-firefox-1080p/
Hope it works for you!
