Watch YouTube Videos in HD

A YouTube user (GoodyGian) was able to figure out a code that if added to the video URL it will change the video viewed into HD. The quote is “&fmt=18” (without the quotes). Here is an example:

Low Quality Video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=FQt-h753jHI

High Quality Video: http://youtube.com/watch?v=FQt-h753jHI&fmt=18

The video is a Bulgarian version of American Idol. This particular contestant doesn’t know English and tries to mimic a song from Mariah Carey, but fails miserably. However, it was so funny that she became a huge hit over the Balkan with her performance. I put this video as an example because you can see a big difference in the English subtitles of her sing the song, and to provide you with a good laugh.
