The YouTube Fix

Postby kevinkirby » Mon Dec 15, 2008 1:24 pm

In case you are wondering, there does exist a way to improve the quality of a Youtube post by simply adding something to the end of the link. It seems to give one's video an added boost of some sort, perhaps by giving it some sort of priority rating.


Here's the secret code: &fmt=18



As in:

Maybe that url setting is normally reserved for administrators or something. Anywazy, it's reassuring to hear from somebody else who notices the diff.

Now if I could just manage to get a single video upload to work from this "axim" (a pocket pc) which, after more than a week and some twenty-odd different attempts, has managed not a single send...then there may be something in this whole inter-web thing.

However, at this point, I'm ready to throw this thing onto the stained wooden floor of this coffeeshop and do a wild, stomping dervish-dance on it to the lilting strains of the bazouki. Everybody duck under your desks! Here comes the end!
