I keep reading about how more and more people are watching video online and less so on TV. Whenever I watch a YouTube video, though, it feels like I'm watching standard definition of the worst possible quality.

So what's the deal? When are we going to see HD content online that is as ubiquitous as the crap on YouTube today?

I was born far far away, here at south america. We are not indians. But in many zones we don't have a real internet connection. This [i]broadband[/i] we have is 512 kbps, and in most of the cases is NOT enough to see videos without some caching before.
It's not that easy.
But if you are looking for some HD, try Joost, it's nice and has some variety of content.

I have a channel on youtube called "Songs From A Headband". I want to get my video to play automatically. I purchased the book YouTube4You on Amazon for some answers. Page 156 is is not clear. Here is what is written:
Tip 4U: To turn a click-to-play video into an autoplay video, insert the following code directly after both instances of the video's URL (no space between and before the end quotation mark): &autoplay=1
Please call me or send me a CLEAR ANSWER on how to do this. On I will write a review on this book.
