In YouTubes previous update they released High Quality video, many people including me thought that this was as far as they were willing to go with improving the video playback quality, however it just turned out to be a stepping stone towards there release of HD.
You may be wondering how to allow people to view the video you uploaded in HD, well its simple once you upload a video with the resolution of 720p then when people click to view your video below it, it will say watch in HD
Below is a few pictures on how the quality has progressed on youtube.
The picture above is the standard quality for any video that is uploaded
The picture above is High Quality, this is available if your video is not blocky and is a good size.
The final picture above is the latest one, it is High definition, this allows for crystal clear imageing and is displayed in 720p
The most recent announcement from YouTube is the introduction of making the standard profile pages increase to 960 pixels, which is great it now allows for your widescreen videos to be featured in all there glory!
Some people may not be able to see the video’s in HD, the ‘watch in hd’ button does not display, this is because you do not have the latest version of flash installed, simply get it here and the you will be able to watch in HD
Below is 2 video’s, they are the same video however the first one is standard quality the second one is High Definition. HD looks brilliant
