Lightbulb Youtube Video Quality Improvement

Based on much research I discovered how to improve Youtube videos, what you may know is when you upload a video to Youtube it converts it to an "flv" format, pretty obvious but, did you also know Youtube also converts your video into an "mp4 format"? To explain why i might direct your attention to the video below.

http://youtube.com/watch?v=qF1wZQzpeKA

this video is of the band 30 seconds to mars, sorry if this music isn't your type, okay pretty obvious it looks like standard Youtube quality, but when you add this code at the end of the addresses URL "&fmt=18" you'll get a cleaner and better version which is higher in pixel ratio and is of the mp4 format

http://youtube.com/watch?v=qF1wZQzpeKA&fmt=18

Try and youll see the difference in the video, make to tabs in your browser and see the sheer brilliance, it might be slow loading for some, but generally doesn't take as long as normal to load, it works on most, not all videos due to poor compression of some Youtube users.

have fun, i do!


THE SECOND LINK MAY NOT WORK, JUST COPY THE ORIGINAL URL FROM THE TOP AND THEN PASTE THE CODE.

Dude! You have no clue what a happy man you have just made me! I thank God for you!
I need this for guitar tutorials, it's a pain straining my eyes to see where their fingers are placed. Now I might be able to learn how to play the solo for Back in Black!
