YouTube - "Watch in high Quality"

We posted a video for one of our clients, and I told them they could click “watch in high quality” to do just that.

He called me and asked how to upload video with that option…

And I have NO idea…it just happened.

Anyone know?

Youtube converts their flash videos to h264 (I think) so that they can be viewed natively on the iphone/ipod touch. That’s also what you see when you click the “high quality” link. It should be automatic, I think.

Yeah, it happens automatically for new uploads. I just checked my account to be sure. The one I uploaded two weeks ago had the “high quality” link, but my older ones from a couple years ago did not (because, of course, they no longer have the source file for that to re-encode at higher quality).
