How do I change streaming quality?

Open the Settings dialog from the dropdown under your avatar on the home screen to change the default streaming quality. Alternatively you can change the quality during playback from the in-playback settings menu.

TV devices may be able to play higher bitrates but be aware that this increases memory and processor strain on the device. The higher the bitrate/resolution of the content being played, the more likely you can run into memory or other issues that might negatively affect playback. Please change the streaming quality with care.
