Youtube Upgrade

Youtube recently upgraded its player to support 16:9 along with higher resolutions. The quality is pretty amazing, just remember to add "&fmt=22" (no quotes) at the end of the video assuming it has support.

5 CM per Second

Neat stuff.

According to Dark Shikari, Youtube will update it's ancient x264 build to a more recent one very soon. Once that happens, quality should improve even more when hopefully psy-rd and aq are turned on along with better settings overall, in addition to the quality improvements that come from newer builds.

I noticed that yesterday while viewing Star Ocean 4's opening movie.

Won't that increase the size of the flv? I didn't notice any change though.

If you are talking about fmt=22, the 1280x720 Youtube videos are mp4 @2Mbps not flv.

Quality is pretty nice, but sadly that does impact performance (at least on my PC [3.02 GHz 1.5 GB RAM 512 geforce]), since there's some frame skipping ocurring

fmt=18 is 512kbps 480x360/480x270 encoded with a custom Google H.264 baseline profile encoder and 128kbps aac stereo audio.

fmt=22 is 2000kbps 1280x720 encoded with x264 at main profile with 192kbps aac stereo audio.

1 byte = 8 bits

data is usually referring to bytes

When talking about video/audio bitrate it's always bits. To give you an idea, fansubs usually range from 700Kbps to 2000Kbps on video. Until Youtube upgrades their x264 build, and unless they use things like CABAC, psy-rd, aq, the quality will take quite a bit of a quality hit from the source even if the youtube bitrate is higher.

0.24MB/s = 2Mb/s = 2000Kb/s = 244KB/s
0.06MB/s = 0.5Mb/s = 500Kb/s = 61KB/s

Storage is usually referred to as bytes.
Data Communication (everything that is not storage) is usually referred to as bits.

Totally agree. Luckily, I just had a speed upgrade 1-2 weeks before the youtube upgrade. It neutralizes the long loading times.

Too bad there isn't a downloadable Youtube video player with the embedded search feature. That would save both virtual memory and bandwidth, but then.. Most people won't be visiting the main site, which isn't all that good of an idea.

I have veoh, but it takes like 30-50mb of virtual memory to run. Due to low ram, it is actually better to use the website instead. More over, its not the best standalone video player due to its lack of codecs, unlike VLC.

It is totally useless. The damn thing covers the video; that is a very stupid. If there are more then one video on the page, it is not going to look any lower then a ad.

At least the quality is a bit better. Still getting used to the wide screen format for youtube now.
