YouTube Unveils High Definition Category Page

    December 18, 2008

YouTube now has a page listing videos specifically available in high definition. Also, these HD videos now open in a larger player than before, pushing features like comments, the ad box, or related videos down the page a bit. Note you still need to click “watch in HD” when on the video page.

Google-owned YouTube continues to experiment with additions and changes. Some of these are neat while others are partly distracting, like when YouTube shows a search box when you start an embedded video and hover over the video box. Other overlays include AdSense ads – cool, I am offered to buy “Www You Tube De” on eBay! – and creator-added links. A yellow box reading “Try YouTube in a new web browser! Download Google Chrome” is also put on many or perhaps all YouTube pages rather indifferently these days..
