With the overwhelming popularity of YouTube these days it is considered like a benchmark against which all other video portals/websites are measured. Normally if you visit the YouTube and play some video there, it mostly starts in low quality. It is not necessarily a bad thing as it saves some bandwidth for the Internet users on low speed connections and makes these videos watchable, although at a lower resolution. But, if you have a very high speed Internet connection like many of us (here in Stockholm) than you would definitely like to view all the videos at the maximum possible quality available. It can be quite tedious to change the resolution setting each time you start playing a new video. These is where Auto HD for YouTube comes in to picture.
This nice little extension for Google Chrome that makes the whole process of viewing HD videos much more seamless on YouTube. Basically after installation of this extension you can specify in the options for the preferred quality and also the fallback quality. Options that are currently available include 360p, 480p, 720p, and 1080p. Users with the high speed Internet connections might want to select the 720p or 1080p option. And users on the low Internet connection speeds can select some lower value here such as 360p. After setting up options here whenever you visit and play a video on YouTube it will automatically select the quality option that you set earlier in this extension and start playing the video in that video quality mode. I think for any Google Chrome user that visits YouTube too often it is a must have extension to have in his arsenal. Auto HD for YouTube can be downloaded here.
