    did youTUbe just remove the high quality button on their videos? I know you can maybe still view it by typing "&fmt=18", but this will save them alot of bandwidth I'd say.. Dammit! Now we can't fuck em over as badly as fast. :'(

    I was actually reading about this earlier today, and apparently Youtube is going to only allow High Quality for their partners' videos.

    huh so which is it? HD for all videos, or only for partners?

    I don't get why they allow stupid shit like blogs to be able to be HQ.. Wtf? If anything why not make the music fucking better quality? Like music can't work without sound so why not make the sound the best possible quality?? Fuck youTube is stupid..

    Can youTube afford the b/w to go all HQ?? I don think so.. They're already having problems as it is.. All HQ would tear a new ass into youTube's b/w
