Higher Resolution Youtube Setting

It's been making the rounds online that Youtube has started implementing a higher quality compression and resolution on its videos. They've been slowly rolling out the higher quality versions of videos (mostly on the newer submissions), and there have been several hacks that tap into this higher quality version right away.

Well, now that's not even necessary, at least if you're a registered user.

If you go into your account, there's a new menu at the end of the list called "Video Playback Quality." From there you can set Youtube to automatically play high quality videos based on current connection, always low quality, or always high quality.

Of course, forcing hiqh quality will run Youtube a little slower, so this is only recommended for people with cable modems or higher.
