Bypass restrictions

Some videos on YouTube may have restrictions that prevent them from playing in specific regions or devices. You can simply bypass these restrictions by changing the URL.

To do this, simply copy the id from the URL, erase everything after the .com, add 'v/' followed by the id you copied earlier that's it.

For example, if this is the original link "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ny3hScFgCIQ" it should look something like "https://www.youtube.com/v/ny3hScFgCIQ"

Set default video quality

You don't have to change the video quality every time you intend to see a video. You can simply set a default video quality by heading straight to YouTube settings located at the top right corner of the screen. From there click on account settings, select playback, and then check "always choose the best quality for connection and player size'" button.
