    Hi guys,

    On the Hero, youtube videos would start to play in low quality unless one would go into the settings and manually change the setting to "Play in high quality" each time ! That was rather annoying...

    Is this the same for the Moment? Or does it just start to play in high quality automatically like the Pre etc?


    Thanks,

    Kayawire

    Wow, didn't know about that option on the Hero. One of the major reasons I was about to switch to the Moment was video quality. I probably still will though. Yes, the Moment did play in high quality when I tried out a video.

    I had time with the Moment yesterday. You have to choose " play in high quality" it does not play it by default.

    Hmmm, was the low quality just better looking than the Hero? I played a video and it looked much less pixelated and blurry than the Hero, and I didn't change any setting.

    I didn't know about this either...

    I can say that the Moment's youtube playing looks far better, less chop much smoother, will have to put it on High now :)

    The lower quality does look a little better than the Hero, mainly because the screen in 24-bit which makes the video seem less pixelated. Things I notice is that when you scroll through comments, the Moment is smoother. The Hero is choppy. Scroll slowly and you will see this.

    There are big quality differences between individual videos as well which could account for video looking better on the Moment, and then there's also that sweet, sweet AMOLED - the wider color range may just make the video look better.

    The YouTube player tries to determine how you're connected to the net to set the quality - if you're on 3G, the default is 'low', on wifi the default is 'high'.

    Unfortunately it doesn't look like this setting gets saved between sessions, I've had to manually change to 'high quality' when using 3G each time I open the app - both on the Hero and the Moment, it's the same app.
