To Embed High Quality YouTube Videos on Your Website
by Joe Tracy, Publisher of NEWSdial.com.
When you embed a YouTube video on your Website, the default setting automatically shows the highly compressed version of the video, not the high quality one. There is a solution, however.
There is code that you can add to the embed code that will, by default, show the high quality version of the video.
Here are step-by-step instructions:
Step 1: Copy the code you want to use and paste it in a document (like Word or NotePad) where you can edit it.
Your code will look something like this:
Notice that within the embedded code there are two URLs.
Step 2: Copy the following: &ap=%2526fmt%3D18
Step 3: Paste what you just copied into the code after each URL (so you'll past it twice).
Now your code will look like this:
When you paste this new code onto your Website, it will now show the high quality version of the video instead of the standard highly compressed version.
Again, the key is to place "&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" (without the quotes) at the end of each URL (just before the ").
Below you can see the difference between the two (play both videos to see the difference)::
