YouTube HQ Video Comparison

Just stumbled across Editing Organazized and found this enlightening post:

To make YouTube content work on non Flash-based devices (AppleTV, iPhone), recent videos are available in higher-quality, non Flash versions.

To view higher quality MP4 (H.264) versions of videos, add ‘&fmt=18′ to the end of the address.

So here’s a comparison test embed of Jose Gonzalez posted with the Compressor 3 iPhone setting:

Default

with the additional code &fmt=18

Credits:

Jon Salvia ……………….. Camera Producer

Salvatore Salvia ……….. Camera

Peter Salvia ……………… Cuts Color Compression

Quoting Rory’s immediate, professional, knee jerk opinion:

Hey, I think the top one looks better. No wait, yeah, I can see the difference. But not much.

Thanks for the blog cameo Mr. Sheridan. And thanks Editing Organazized for the awesome and informative post.

    You screwed up on the hi res embed. The url address is sticking out beneath or below the hi res version. Check your coding!

    What are you talking about? I went into the html and removed the ‘amp;’ so that should fix any issues. Can’t you see the nose hairs in the second video more clearly??
    I won’t rule out the possibility I’m a coding maroon. Any non-family members out there want to clear this up?
