I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and I swear the videos play at 240p!!!!!!

Im using Wi-Fi closing every app to ensure that I get good quality and still I get horrible quality, I know is not my phone because youtube, netflix, even twitch that is live streaming plays at least at 720p.

My question is, how can I fix the quality of the app, I saw in another thread that by going to settings and holding down the settings screen you could fix the quality but I think thats just for iOS because I tried it and it didn't work.

PLEASE HELP!!! Im tired of watching low quality when I'm paying for a premium subscription. ...

Currently the Andriod apps (except for Ouya) are 360p only. To get higher resolutions, there are two different workarounds.

Depending on how technical you are, and if you have a PC that can set up and run Plex Server there are these instructions:

Otherwise there is the Dolphin browser route which requires installing three apps, including a modified Flash apk file. These were the instructions for a Kindle Fire, which requires extra steps to sideload, but it should be a little easier for "regular" Android O/S:
