YouTube Tip

Just a quick little tip. In my spare time I more often than not find myself on YouTube checking out some videos, and today I figured I would share this handy hint for viewing YouTube content in a higher resolution.

Just find any video on YouTube, and add the following code on to the end of the URL: &fmt=18

So for example,
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hQAWYj3cq38,
would become,
http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=hQAWYj3cq38&fmt=18.

Simple! Ofcourse if the video was poor quality regardless then the benefits will be slim, but it sure can boost the quality on certain clips.

  1. Neat trick! The differences on the few videos I tried were VERY subtle, but like you said, it depends on the quality of the source video. Thanks!
