Starting Monday, you may notice YouTube videos get a bit clearer. That’s because YouTube announced that you will now be able to upload and watch videos in 1080p. For those of you not technology friendly, or literate, 1080p is the picture type usually associated with Blu-ray players. Not only will videos be clearer, but they will also be larger, which will appeal to people who have larger computer monitors.
To be able to post videos in the new 1080p format, you will need a camera which shoots in 1080p. However, it is becoming more common feature in video cameras, so if you have recently purchased a new camera, there is a good chance you’ll be able to test the new feature. YouTube had said that if users have already posted videos in 1080p’s, there is no need to re-upload them, because the company is in the process of reformatting them and will feature a number of them on the site on Monday.
Late last year, YouTube introduced High Definition videos to the site. Under the current format, YouTube supports videos in 720p for High Definition videos.
