YouTube Has Higher Resolution Videos With Better Sound!

YouTube has started making available higher resolution versions of its videos, offering 480×360 video with higher quality audio, up from the standard resolution of 320×240. The video is MP4 with AAC audio. It has also made available 448×336 video, with 44100 Hz audio, double the normal.
