HD/HQ and Widescreen Options on Embedded Videos

You now have the option to watch embedded videos in high quality or HD (when those formats are available). The widescreen option is also available when you embed a video. You can use our handy how-to guide on optimising your uploads to look their absolute best on YouTube.







As always, let us know how you find using this new feature. We'll use your feedback to make improvements as we roll out new features for embeds.



Sincerely,

Nikhil Chandhok

Hi Nikhil, Namaste!

"... watch embedded videos in high quality or HD."

1. The speed of Internet Connectivity with regards to a possible cap (speed and download limit) by the ISP, is an issue that needs to be addressed.

2. Some of the most widely used Bloggging platforms still confine themselves to the standard - max. 500 pixels content area, including Google owned Blogger.com

3. Your surname 'Chandhok' is mispelled in the posted by section, which reads, "Posted By: Nikhil Chandhos"

Thanks for the update.

This is nice, but I still don't see why YouTube can't bring back the ability to upload videos more than 10 minutes long, at least for those with Director's accounts.

You tube is a good site, i wonder how the name came about, because if you were going to launch a new site you woudn't pick youtube as a name, but now its world famous it just goes by as the norm. Also i think you tube has been slow in implementing new technology, HD and wide screen (i.e high quality video should have been available a while ago, i know internet speeds and avialability are an excuse but it should have been an option if we wanted it. One more thing the advertising is starting to get slightly ahoying now it was ok about a year ago, it was subtle but now its to musc in your face and looking desperate, i know its needed to make money but this is a people website and should provide a service first! thanks, jay.

HELP FORUMS WILL NOT LOAD AND THERE IS NOT HELP TOPIC FOR THIS: for some reason, when I vote up a comment, it will vote it up -- and mark it as spam about half the time. The two options aren't even next to each other so I don't know how this can be happening, and I'd love to find out how to fix it.
