YouTube Gets Serious About High Definition With 1080p Support

Posted by Corey Kaster on November 13, 2009

YouTubeHD-verticalAs consumer video equipment continues to get better and cheaper, high-definition video has become increasingly common on video sharing sites like YouTube. So far, YouTube will display HD video up to 720p, but the newest cameras offer even sexier 1080p video. Next week, so will YouTube, as it introduces support for “true HD.” Your new HD video uploads will be viewable in their full 1080p, and any old 1080p you’ve uploaded will be automatically reencoded for full resolution once the feature launches.

This is a well-timed feature release, because I’m certain plenty of 1080p cameras are going to be sold this christmas. YouTube’s new HD isn’t just good news for fans of gift-unboxing videos and dogs in holiday sweaters, though. Also consider the possibilities for new movie trailers and game demos. Eye candy city, here we come!
