PHS Prom Grand March 2022 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Pg2ai84NMo Video Quality: YouTube video quality varies from device to device. Different electronic devices have different screen types, sizes, and resolutions. Apple’s iPhone (wide-gamut, high-contrast, HDR) will have much better video quality than a standard desktop monitor or an inexpensive laptop that uses older display technologies. YouTube typically adjusts the quality of your video based on the speed of your connection.

Have a great weekend and Who Dey!
