High Quality YouTube Videos

    Currently, it is possible to text link a high quality version of a YouTube video by adding &fmt=18 to the URL, but the code does not work for embedding.

    Text Link

    Original Code: href=”URL&fmt=18″
    Wordpress Correction: href=”URL&fmt=18″
    Result: Link to high quality video works

    Embedding Video

    Original Code: [youtube=URL&fmt=18]
    Wordpress Correction: [youtube=URL&fmt=18]
    Result: Embedding of a standard quality video instead of a high quality video

    Please consider adding support for embedding high quality YouTube videos.

    Thank you,
    Kitsune

    Looks like I can’t edit the post…

    Typo:

    & is missing from the corrected versions:

    It should read:

    WordPress Correction: href=”URL&fmt=18″

    WordPress Correction: [youtube=URL&fmt=18]

    ……..

    It seems that the WordPress forum is omitting the expression ANDAMP; from my posts… I’ll try to repost it in the code tag.

    Embedding Video:
    Original Code: [youtube=URL&fmt=18]
    Wordpress Correction: [youtube=URL&fmt=18]
    Result: Embedding of a standard quality video instead of a high quality video
