Youtube To Add 1080p HD Videos

13 Nov/09

Youtube and other video portals on the Internet have come a long way since the beginning of the online video boom. What started with low resolutions has now grown over the year to keep pace with the high definition development in the TV, digital camcorder and media market. Youtube announced yesterday in the official Youtube blog that they would start serving 1080p HD videos from the coming week on at their popular video portal.

The current maximum resolution for Youtube videos is 720p (1280 × 720) which will be raised to the new maximum of 1080p (1920×1080) from next week on. The highest quality level of the video still depends on the video source according to the post at the Youtube blog.

A test video was uploaded to Youtube to showcase the new maximum resolution. This video cannot be embedded and interested users need to visit Youtube to view the video there.

Videos that have already been uploaded in 1080p have previously been encoded for 720p. These videos will automatically be encoded again so that they can be shown in 1080p from next week on at the video portal. A search for 1080p on Youtube reveals many videos that are already available in that new format (or have been improperly tagged with the 1080p tag).
