How to watch HD videos on YouTube

As most of us know by now, YouTube is starting to implement the "High Definition" in their videosor at least those recorded in high definition. The only drawback is that for the moment they have it hidden, usable but hidden.

With a simple trick you can display these in high definition.and that is by adding a simple attribute at the end of a YouTube video link, what you need to add is &fmt=18I will give you an example.

This would be the URL you would see when searching for a video on YouTube:

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcE9wDMTCQ

No high definition

And this would be the URL of the video in question in high definition:

http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=AxcE9wDMTCQ&fmt=18

With high definition

As you can see, all the attribute does is to add a function in the bottom right-hand corner to switch between HD and normal, I hope it will be useful, until YouTube decides to unhide this function.
