Increase the Quality of Youtube Videos

The folowing trick will upgrade the video quality when viewing youTube.

f your internet connection speed is reasonably fast and you want to watch clearer and sharper images on your video clips, you can append &fmt=6 to the URL of the YouTube video that you want to watch. For instance, look at the example below.
The URL for the original video clip below is via http://youtube.com/watch?v=CQzUsTFqtW0.

Once you append &fmt=6 to the URL
(it becomes http://youtube.com/watch?v=CQzUsTFqtW0&fmt=6 )
and you will observe the quality of the video become better and clearer (448 x336 pixels).

The video quality can be further enhanced when you append &fmt=18
(it becomes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAE2-FQHkok&fmt=18 ). When you append &fmt=18, YouTube will download the video as a MP4 (H264 with AAC audio) and encoded it at 480×360.

Having sad that, the above tricks do not work for all YouTube Video. It only works for a small number of videos at this point of time.

Have fun Viewing Youtube
