Hey - I just found this cool trick to view any youtube video at a higher resolution, simply put "&fmt=18" at the end of the URL. 

Check the different in quality between these clips - unfortunately I don't think you can embed them in "HD", but I'll look through the code later to see if it's possible:

Who knows - could be dozens!  Later I'll try out different "fmt" settings to see what we can come up with.

Here's screen grabs of the difference, pretty amazing, plus the sound is much crisper.

Isn't there a feature you can click to watch the video in higher quality?

Mmmm....I'm using Safari 3.1 and it has a little TV box on the top right corner of the table below the vid.

Says....Quality and the options are:

Standard and High.

:confused:

Maybe it's different than it is for IE or Mozilla users??

I found the code!  Youtube vids posted here will now automatically use the hi-def (MP4) format. :cool:

This is awesome - check out the quality... I love youtube now!! :D  I'm gunna have to go and re-upload a bunch of my older vids that I dumbed down myself for low-quality youtubing.

It's only recently started popping up and only on certain selected videos, this hack makes the MP4 format available from any vid that was uploaded at a good enough quality.
