I also brought up the desire to be able to changed the resolution manually due to metered connection back when the new player was introduced. I really love the player otherwise (also missing the lijes feature), but I really want to be able to set the resolution (up or down) to suit my needs, instead of an algorithm attempting to do it.
I'm often on a limited connection and in that case I need a lower resolution even if the speed would support high speed for a time (and drop to below viewing speeds when the data volume is used up). But I need to set this manually preferably via a setting on the main page instead of on video load, because on video load it's already going to have wasted a lot of volume and time till I can get to the relevant button - as seen on the mobile app, which still supports manual changes.
And please do not attempt to auto-detect whether I'm on wifi or on mobile. Because my smartphone already wrongly identifies me as being on wifi, due to a mobile router that's nether-the-less on limited volume.
