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.

after more research into Youtube videos i should also mention another video format which is VERY VERY rare! and its a format which is not MP4 or FLV, its a flash SWF format which is a high quality flash video, to get this format

type in at the end of the videos URL, "&fmt=6"

good luck in finding these videos.

don't do that if your graphics card supports directx8 or lower. and don't do that if you have at least an internet speed of 3mbps
