YouTube this week announced in a blog post that, starting next week, the Google-owned video hosting site will start streaming content in high definition.
"Starting next week, YouTube's HD mode will add support for viewing videos in 720p or 1080p, depending on the resolution of the original source, up from our maximum output of 720p today," said Software Engineer Billy Biggs.
YouTubers should see the change over the next few days and the site is encouraging users to up their monitors to 1080p so they can really enjoy full screen videos.
Bigg says the folks at YouTube are in the process of re-encoding all the 1080p videos users have already uploaded.
