ipad mini youtube app recommendations?

Tue Feb 16, 2016 8:41 am

So basically I am looking for a youtube app (for ipad mini - wife & daughter use) that one can set a default resolution and the app will always remember it.

Using the youtube app now and it always defaults back to auto resolution for every single video, and it's tearing through my 250GB bandwidth cap faster than Deanjo spends cash on enterprise gear for his home office :D

I googled some but the list is fairly large.

Also child restrictions would also be good.

Thanks

I've tried various YouTube apps but as far as I remember none of them could do what you're expecting. Guess that feature request is a bit too specific...

How about a Safari home screen bookmark? I guess i'm not certain it will retain your settings every time though. Worth a shot.

Try McTube. They have introduced the exact same feature which you are talking about in their last App update.

The iOS app (at least on my 6S Plus) does have an option to disable HD on cellular if that helps. It also has content filtering under the options menu inside the app.

I don't think this kind of cap is a cellular cap.
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

Thanks.

No cap is for typical residential internet. Will give mcTube a try.
