Sometimes you simply want to have a better resolution for the Youtube videos that you’re watching right? But by default, it is only streamed at 320 X 240.

Thanks to Quick Online Tips, watching a high resolution video is now possible in Youtube. Here’s how:

You just simply add &fmt=6 for a 448 x 336 and &fmt=18 for 480 x 360 resolutions at the end of each youtube url on the address box.

Examples:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=ABCDE&fmt=6 – 448 X 336 resolutions
http://youtube.com/watch?v=ABCDE&fmt=18 – 480 x 360 resolutions

Note: If no changes has been made, it means that youtube hasn’t been able to convert the video yet.
