How to Find High Definition Videos on Youtube

Youtube now enables users to view High Definition videos on its site, wherever the option is available. Its easy to convert most videos to HD by clicking on the new “Watch in HD” links beneath videos.

Since many videos are still not available with the HD option, but you have a high speed broadband internet connection which lets you stream high quality high definition videos, then where can you find a collection of HD videos?

Apparently Youtube has a hidden area where such HD videos are all collected together. Check out the Youtube HD videos collection and enjoy. I counted that there are only 100 HD videos out there, of the millions of videos hosted on Youtube.

However, if I embed an HD video below, the HD link option is not available. If Youtube displays a HD icon on these videos, users might prefer to click through to the youtube site to see the HD video instead of the embedded video.

    Go to this page and follow instructions. You will then be able to embed youtube videos in high-def on your site. This page will generate the proper embed code for you.

    Yes, I tried the embed-“hack” and it works.

    Another thing: if you don’t have the latest flash9 plugin for your browser, the “watch in HD” will not be shown to you, only the “watch in high quality”.

    Add the keyword hd to your search query and YouTube will only show High-definition video clips that are either 720p (1280×720) or 1080p (1920×1080 pixels).
