    Thumbs up Watch YouTube Videos in 720p by Adding "&fmt=22" to the Link

    [VR-Zone News Around The Web]

    Props to Mocib (admin from inCrysis.com) for figuring this one out.

    Just stumbled into another YouTube quality variable thingy.

    Apparently you can now watch YouTube videos in 720p. That will of course only happen if you upload a 720p video, and then add &fmt=22 to the end of the YouTube link.

    Example:

    Regular: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY

    1280x720: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlfKdbWwruY&fmt=22 (use full screen view)

    Clicking the "watch in high quality" link won't show 720p.

    I downloaded the MP4 of that above clip with the Firefox Downloadhelper add-on:

    Media Player Classic:

    Audio: AAC 44100Hz stereo 232Kbps [(C) 2007 Google Inc. v06.24.2007.]
    Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1280x720 [(C) 2007 Google Inc. v06.24.2007.]

    the video needs to be at that resolution if you want it to be sharp.

    This is not some hidden thing from the people.If you are a usual youtube user and don't have an account there you will only see low quality or by using that code you can have high quality BUT IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT YOU CAN CHOOSE TO SEE CLIPS AT HD IF IT"S AVAILABLE FROM PLAYBACK SETTINGS.

    Yeah, this is entirely different from the "View in High Quality" option, which only offers 480p.

    It's actually even lower than 480p, normal .flv video quality in YouTube is even worse (absolutely unusable, usually).
