    ...So the reviews are saying the YouTube HQ app isn't installed. Not a dealbreaker but I'm lil disappointed. Especially since their marketing the Epic as a multimedia powerhouse. Is there be a way we could add the YouTube HQ app from the EvO to the Epic?

    It's an APK just download it off XDA and install as you would anything else.

    On my Captivate there is no HQ button but if you hit menu while in the player there is a "watch in high quality" option. Kind of a pain vs having a button though. Videos look great in HQ. I'm guessing this option is there for the Epic but the reviewers aren't digging very deep.

    On the Galaxy S 2.2 rom, the youtube app has the HQ button just like the Evo and Droid X. I saw it...

    Here you go:

    Download: Youtube.apk (alt link) (alt link2)

    Instructions for installation…

    *Note 1*
    - This will remove theming from your Youtube widget.

    1. Download the Youtube.apk to your SD card.
    2. When the file finishes downloading, tap on it and select “OK.”
    3. Then choose “Install.”
    4. When it finishes select “Open” and play a video.
    5. Done!

    *Note 2*
    - If your widget does not work initially, reboot your phone and it should be fine.
