YouTube Turns on HD

The Age of Grainy Web Videos Has Come to an End: YouTube Turns on HD - ReadWriteWeb:
"Just about three weeks ago, we reported that YouTube was testing high-definition videos, and today it seems like this feature has been officially released. A large number of videos that fulfilled YouTube's criteria for HD encoding now sport a 'watch in HD' button instead of the old 'watch in high"
Here's an HD video, from my Kodak Zi6 camera, on YouTube.

Now it was a 'Watch in HD' link on it.

Looks great.

When I embed it here though, it's not in HD, you need to go to YouTube to see the HD version.


Note: I'd already uploaded this video on November 26th BEFORE YouTube turned on HD.

They seem to have recognized that my footage was HD and changed the link to "Watch in HD."

Very cool.

I wonder if there's a way to embded an HD version.
