Included in myTube version 22.214.171.124, the new resolution options are very much still in testing. According to the release notes, the options may not work correctly, so you'll want to avoid setting them as the default quality in your app settings.
Along with the new quality options, this update includes a few bug fixes for the PC version of myTube as well. Here's a look at what's new:
- Wrapped Store Engagement SDK code in try/catch to avoid potential DirectoryNotFound exceptions on Insider devices
- (PC) Fixed issue that caused theatre mode to no longer be available for beta users.
- (PC) Fixed issue where the app may get stuck in picture-in-picture mode after a video ends.
- (Xbox) Enabled 1440p, 4K and 8K for testing on Xbox One X (beta only, do not change your default quality in settings if these resolutions don't work).
MyTube has long been one of the more solid YouTube alternatives on Windows, so added support for higher resolutions on Xbox One X is good to see. This follows the official launch of myTube on Xbox earlier in 2017, along with a new design inspired by Microsoft's own Fluent Design System.
