    How come many of the videos that were once supporting 480p only support 360 and 240?

    And whats with the 240p?

    Was the suck-quality not suck-enough or something?

    probably for low-bandwith users, I hate it though, mine always automaticly selects 240p and I get shit quality.

    I've always connected at 360p, even with the new change. I think that the 240p setting is mainly for smartphone users, who don't care for reduced quality when their screen is so small anyway. Noobtoob should have a news post somewhere explaining the change.

    Under your bed
    I was like o.0
    When I saw two topics about what's up with youtube [​IMG]
    And They were both about something else...
    But even I got a question about youtube, which is different.
    (btw, couldn't you configure @ what xxxxP the vid starts?)
    I was watching a vid (song actually [​IMG])
    And then there were a few options which weren't there before (afaik)
    I should've taken a print screen... But one of the buttons were gone after... something?
    It looked like a football (kinda?) and when I clicked it, my song went like reaaalllyyy weird [​IMG]
    Anyone else noticed moar buttons?
    Edit: [​IMG]
    Soooo... even though the football is explained two post under [​IMG]
    There are even moar buttons there which I've never seen :/

    Get rid of the &fmt=18 at the end of your address and then look for the 480 option again.

    The noise you heard on the football button was Vuvuzelas.

    You can change Video Quality settings in your account settings somewhere. I have mine set to Best [​IMG]
    EDIT:Okay, maybe not that good... But you can set it to HD on Fullscreen.

    YousableTubeFix is much easier on the eyes, it actually blends in with the page.
