once you pull up a video, go to the URL and add this parameter to the end of the URL (without the quotes): "&fmt=18" ... this will create a H.264 mp4 version of the video with AAC stereo audio that will be higher quality (if the original uploaded clip isn't too crappy to start with, and many on YouTube are). I believe the resulting video is also suitable for iPod and videophone use.

You can alternatively append "&fmt=6" to create a higher quality Flash flv video, but i didn't have much luck with that one on the videos i was viewing, but the 18 was wonderful. There is also a 22 format code that transcodes into a very high resolution video, but your chances of finding one of those out there that was uploaded with sufficient quality is pretty remote. There are probably other codes for other quality settings as well, but i don't know what they are at this point.

Man this is great! A leftist is in charge of the country and the fussy liberals that spent all their time hating Bushy can now find time to pursue their passions.

life is good.

We're waiting for you to start bashing Bush. After all, he wasted $1-Trillion dollars of your hard-earned tax dollars on a war, $100's of billions more will be wasted on interest payments on the national debt for years and years.

He is also mostly responsible for reducing the GOP to a near fringe political party that will possibly be frozen out of the presidency for the next 8 or even 12 years.

But you will pursue your passion and bash a black president...not so much because he is a Democrat or is a Liberal but mainly because he is black.

Fuss away baby boy...
