You can change device in build.prop file to Google Nexus phone or tablet device and then you will be able to play 1080p in Youtube.

Sorry, above trick only works for Nagrace HPH RK3288 firmware, not with Firefly, strange.

Think 4k is not available since the kernel runs at 1080p and not 4K resolution.

Hi Busybee


In Nagrace NT-V6 RK3288 firmware if you change this in build.prop 1080p Youtube works.

ro.product.model=Nexus 5
ro.product.brand=google
ro.product.name=hammerhead
ro.product.device=hammerhead
ro.product.board=hammerhead


Tried it on Firefly 27/01/15 firmware but it doesn't work.

Anyway to change/modify setting in Firefly firmware to also enable 1080p Youtube?

HTC/Google Nexus 9 can play 4K Youtube video up to 1440p format.

Can you hack to modify build.prop to Nexus 9 to let RK3288 play 1440p Youtube video?

While finding the best budget action camera, I make sure they have apps with USB ready port to make the transfers easy.
