    I use Comodo Dragon web browser but for some reason, i'm running into a bit of an issue when I go to YouTube on it (and it's only Comodo Dragon and only on my computer)

    On YouTube you can select the video quality. This is what it is supposed to look like: http://postimg.org/image/tjuiiyz17/

    But when I watch the same video on Comodo Dragon, this is what it looks like: http://postimg.org/image/c2xnt80ut/

    So for some strange reason, it's not letting me select anything higher than 360p. But the thing is, when I use Comodo Dragon on another machine, it's fine and I have all those quality options. This is only happening on my home PC and only with Comodo Dragon. I know all my plugins and the browser itself is up to date so I have no idea why that's happening.

    Have you tried re-installing Comodo Dragon? Neil.

    No, I didn't re-install it.

    But I just noticed that on some youtube videos I watch on Dragon it does give me all the youtube video quality options like it's supposed to but on others it doesn't. It's really weird.

    Not all Youtube videos have quality options. For example, if someone uploads a lower quality video, that video cannot be transformed into a higher quality video. Just like audios, videos can only be reduced in quality from the original. You cannot make gold out of lead.

    Right, I'm well aware of that. I'm of course talking about the videos that ARE uploaded in HD. For example. When I was watching a Marble Hornets video, it was giving me the 720p option but for some reason, when I was watching that AVGN video, it wasn't; even though I know the option was supposed to be there (As shown in the pictures in my first post)

    Anyway, I uninstalled and reinstalled and that seemed to do the trick.
