Hello,

I'm sort of new to computer hardware so this maybe a stupid question.

I'm currently running a Intel HD 2500 integrated on my desktop , I've realised when I put videos on youtube to 1080P it's not really full HD.
My screen resolution is 1080P and the hard drive is connected to the monitor via HDMI.
Are all integrated HD cards like this or is it just mine ?

Thank you

Most any current integrated video is capable of 1080P. However, if the monitor itself is incapable of displaying 1080P, you won't get a Full HD picture off it. What monitor are you using?

Assuming you are running your monitor at its native resolution (1920x1080), you should get Full HD on Youtube in full-screen mode, if the video was recorded in 1080P. However, any compression that Youtube puts on the video (I don't know if they do, since I've never uploaded any video) will affect video quality.

They are 1080P(ish), youtube uses massive levels of compression and decompresses on the client side, this is not lossless compression, it isn't super lossy, but you do suffer some loss of detail whenever you do any non-lossless compression.

Your graphics chip is capable of displaying 1080P, but the source material you are using as a reference is not flawless 1080P so it makes it seem like it isn't rendering full 1080P.
