1080p HD Is Coming to YouTube (& Creators Call-Out!)


(Cross-posted from the YouTube blog.)

We're excited to say that support for watching 1080p HD videos in full resolution is on its way. Starting next week, YouTube's HD mode will add support for viewing videos in 720p or 1080p, depending on the resolution of the original source, up from our maximum output of 720p today.

As resolution of consumer cameras increases, we want to make sure YouTube is the best home on the web to showcase your content. For viewers with big monitors and a fast computer, try switching to 1080p to get the most out of the fullscreen experience.

Just how much larger is 1080p? Take a look at the following screenshots from this video:

Standard - 360p

HQ - 480p

HD - 720p

HD - 1080p

Have an HD camera? We would love to see your awesome 1080p videos! Be creative and choose subjects that really show off the beauty of your camera. We will run the best examples on our homepage in a future spotlight.

And those of you who have already uploaded in 1080p, don't worry. We're in the process of re-encoding your videos so we can show them the way you intended.

    You should use www.socialkik.comto buy Youtube video Views... we purchased 10,000 Youtube video Views for our youtube video and we're quite satisfied with the results. The video appears now on the top of the search results on Youtube and Google, which brought a LOT of traffic to our site.

    That series of pictures really helped me understand much better the differences in video quality, I had an idea of how it worked but it wasn't until now that I get the whole idea. To be honest I was going to buy Cialis Online before finding this great info.
