YouTube HD Coming Soon

By Dave

One of the reasons I like Stage6 better than YouTube is because of the upper limit of quality that DivX’s video sharing site provides is much higher than anything you will see on YouTube, but it looks like that might be changing with the announcement of YouTube HD over on TechCrunch.

YouTube co-founder Steve Chen confirmed that YouTube was testing HD video but qualified the statement by stating that YouTube is primarily focused on providing content to everyone, which doesn’t necessarily facilitate a HD product.

Chen spoke on the difficulties on providing a watchable HD product to many, including buffering times that don’t drive viewers away. Chen told CNet that the first HD content on YouTube should be available within 3 months.

I really think that increasing the quality of content displayed on YouTube is the only way it can continue to really grow its media-hungry audience. I am very happy with this announcement and think that this is a very smart move by Google. What do you think?
