Just a thought that passed through my mind after reading the following article:

What if someone wants to start a site that provides high-definition content...can it give sites like youtube competition?

**oops....didn't complete the topic title...how do i edit that?**

I think Youtube will gradually upgrade their service to meet the demand, however there is not enought bandwith among the common users to be able to handle the heavy traffic that HD-material will cause.

the thing is, it's not that important to most people. also, for true hi def, you'll need to record the same way and most people don't have that ability. take a look at http://www.stage6.com/ for some vids with much better resolution. i must add that you'll need mplayer as i use divx on my windows box.

That's quite true, and today's quality of the material on Youtube shows it. There simply are no cameras on the market which produce movies of such a poor quality. It is all the result of heavy compression.

same thing with music. 128kbps is perfectly fine for most people (def not me though) so that's the industry standard.

In future flash willsupport better codecs like h.264 (with same bitrate quality difference is huge).
