YouTube supports video resolution from 144 Pixel to 1080 Pixel. The higher resolution you select the more power and hardware resources like more CPU, RAM and Graphics you need. For an optimal user 340 Pixel is enough resolution to see everything clear and on this resolution video load faster. So use 340 Pixel as you default choice to get a buffer free experience.
