Youtube has finally enabled HD 1080p uploads. Read more about it at the YouTube blog.
I’ve made the mistake of fitting a video to the youtube player before, so when I uploaded Nemesis and Small Penis I used a 1080p file just in case it would ever be an option. With the new format YouTube has re-coded these videos, and they are now available in 1080p. In the bottom right corner, where it says HD, you can choose between 720p and 1080p.
With this upgrade YouTube is turning into a an even better screening area for short films.
