One of the problems of lack of control of the quality of the video on Netflix is that you do not know what resolution is watching. Then you wait a few seconds for the video to get a good quality and … should already be in 1080p, right? No. In fact, not all browsers support Full HD on Netflix. And it’s likely that your not support.
On this page, Netflix details what are the browsers that support the service and what is the maximum resolution that they run the video. If you use Chrome, Firefox or Opera, fuen: your favorite series are being viewed in 720p resolution and a maximum bit rate of 4420 kb / s.
In the case of Safari (OS X 10.10.3 or higher), Internet Explorer (!) And Microsoft Edge, the maximum resolution reaches 1080p, with the latter running at 7,500 kb / s. These three browsers account for only 14% of the audience Our site.
This information came to light by a blog post from Microsoft and confirmed by PCWorld. From the secret menu of Netflix, which allows the user to set the video quality and statistics (Control + Alt + Shift + D), you can see the resolution at which the video is running. In tests, the screen showed the 1080p resolution for Edge, while Chrome only came to 720p.
Now a curiosity: remember that battery test that Microsoft has made between the four major browsers, showing that Edge can increase your life by up to 70%? So. According to Microsoft, because the Edge has run video at 1080p in the tests, it can deliver a high quality content while they spend less battery. Palmas to Microsoft.
If you do not want to even change the browser, there is still hope: you can download the application Netflix for Windows 10, which also displays content in full HD.
