YouTube Gets New HD Format

By Joe Hall

Well, it’s official, YouTube can now be seen in High Definition. What an awesome way to start the weekend! It wasn’t long ago that we reported on YouTube’s change in size. And now we are seeing what we assumed was right around the corner, is here!

The change also comes as YouTube announces more and more deals with professional content providers including CBS and MGM.

Surprisingly YouTube’s new HD format looks phenomenal! Some are even saying that it surpasses the quality found from rivals such as vimeo. I will admit that I am not a good enough judge of quality to say if that’s true. But I can say that it looks great to me.
