Did you all know that you can increase the quality of Youtube videos by adding...

&fmt=18

Still not as sharp as the original but they look a lot better! It doesn't work for all of them, just the more recently uploaded vids.

Check out the difference from this...

Don't know what to say. I just checked the second link and it does work and I do see a difference. But it's not major. It might not be worth it for most people.
