I probably won't watch those videos. My video card can't handle 1080p. Many other people may also be in the same boat.

Gee 1080p video of dogs walking on their two rear legs...... Of course the video would be compressed to hell. And the video would be shot using a cheap $15 lens mounted in a $200 camera.

And there will be people blabbing "But it's 1080p, it is the best."

I don't think that is the issue here, the internet speed and bandwidth is the issue.

I agree, nothing on Youtube is ever going to be the best.

Wah?? Nothing??? There are some talented people out there (like this guy), and Youtube gives them a low (no) cost option for getting our high quality content.

I say bring it on ...

I meant in the way of quality. Half the stuff on youtube is halarious.

I am using a very reliable and consistent 7Mbps cable modem. My computer can barely handle YouTube's HD programming, 720p(?), as it is.

A lot of hardware needs to be upgraded.

On the November 18, 2009 episode of the Cranky Geeks, there is a discussion of this topic. The panel mentions that Google, YouTube's owner, has purchased a large amount of dark fiber. Google was once rumored to be purchasing Akamai. Maybe, they want to be first place in internet delivery and content.

Google can buy or install all the fiber they want, but unless they become an ISP and use that fiber to connect subscribers to it, who cares.

If Comcast, Time Warner, Verizon, etc can't deliver, it is moot. Same thing as long as the ISP's have a bandwidth cap.

My internet speed is a maximum download speed of 2Mbps for $44 a month, am I paying to much?
