You're not supposed to change Youtube video resolution when using smplayer from within smtube preference dialog.
Video quality has to be changed via the smplayer preference dialog, instead: Options > Preferences > Performance > Youtube quality.
Just know 1080p is not going to work this days due to recent Youtube changes (it uses DASH now).
Nevertheless there's already a workaround out there, but you will need smplayer from svn and youtube-dl [1].

Let me know if you mean something else, otherwise I'm going to close this bug.

I have managed to change the resolution to a lower resolution via the method you described; maybe a wiki should be updated to reflect this. Thanks for the help!
