Upload HD Videos and Embed HD Videos in Youtube

After searching in Google How to Upload HD Videos to Youtube and embed High-definition Youtube Videos, In this post I will tell you how you can embed YouTube videos in HD. You have uploaded a HD Screencast on YouTube and you want to embed that screencast in HD (so that by default it will play in HD) on your blog or website for best view for viewers. So they don’t have to change the video to HD manually.

So, How do you Upload Video in HD to Youtube?, For the highest quality, YouTube now recommends the following setting for your video:

  • MPEG4 (DivX, Xvid, H.264) format
  • 1280x720 resolution or 1080p
  • 128k Mono or 320k Stereo MP3/AAC audio
  • 24,25 or 30 frames per second
  • Up to 2GB file size and 15:59 min. duration

What if you want to embed Youtube videos in HD?, To force a specific video quality during playback, add the VQ parameter to the URL to specifically set the video quality, regardless of the window size.

The parameter settings are:

  • vq=small: 240p; low quality and fastest to load
  • vq=medium: 360p; acceptable quality and still rather fast
  • vq=large: 480p; high quality, buffers slower
  • vq=hd720: 720p; best quality, buffers slowest

For example, using the code below causes the video to play at 720p by default. (The best quality for this particular video) Notice this URL uses the vq=hd720 parameter. so when you embed any YouTube player code look likes this:

HTML5/iframe Player embed code:

<iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WE4U7fdB3wI?vq=hd720" width="670" height="402" frameborder="0"></iframe>

Flash Player embed code:

<object width="480" height="390"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VIDEO-ID?vq=hd720" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always" /><embed src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WE4U7fdB3wI?vq=hd720" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen" width="480" height="390" /></object>

So, here is the resulting video upload in High Definition (TV Series) HD720p and Embed in HD720p: 1280×720 on your blog or website to play at HD720p by default, test with Click Play.

  1. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this content
    together. I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of
    time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

  2. The VQ parameter (eg vq=hd720) has no effect at all if you have opted into the HTML 5 trial. I've only tested on Firefox. It certainly always pays YOUR video on this page in HD when using flash, it does NOT when using HTML 5.

    1. so this embed Youtube videos in HD to play video at 720p by default,,To force a specific video quality during playback,,These parameters are issued from youtube can be used for a flash player and the user does not need to manually choose again
