I want the default for videos to be loaded in SD, since I can't seem to get consistent loading speeds for anything over 480p. I set the default to SD in video settings, yet whenever I go to the next video in a series, it continues to default to 1080p and becomes rather frustrating since I know I set it under the settings.

Anyone have an idea on how to fix this? All I want is the videos to start in SD and I'll choose when I want higher Definition on my own.

You have to set it and reset it a couple times.

Do this:

- Change your video setting to 720P.
- Let it save.
- Then change it again to your desired setting (in the case SD).
- Let it save again.
- Go test it.
- And that should do it.

Basically, you have to fool it. Set it to something that isn't your desired resolution, then set it to your desired resolution shortly there after.

Give that a try.
