    Bacially the youtube video quality is really bad. Even if i play a youtube video it just says "video cannot be played" all the time so i never use youtube anymore on my hero. But i put downloaded a video for my phone and its like really bad quality. I viewed it on the internet and the video is good quality. And Sprint TV is super horrible quality too. Whats wrong?:thinking:

    I'm no expert, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but I've read that Android 1.5 is only capable of displaying 65k colors. This lower limit becomes evident when watching videos on the Hero. The actual Hero screen limit is 262k colors, which sounds like an Android OS upgrade may be able to take full advantage of the Hero's capabilities.

    The YouTube app defaults to Low Quality unless you are on WIFI. Are you switching to High Quality?

    maybe if you searched the forum you would have learned that when watching youtube you can press menu and switch to high quality which looks flawless.
