The YouTube Homepage Goes HD

By The YouTube Team

You may have already noticed, but this past December we rolled out Hi-Definition-enabled video viewing here on YouTube. Just click the "watch in HD" option below any HD-enabled video, sit back and relax as the joy of YouTube comes to you sharper and more cinematic than ever before. And while you're certainly free to browse our new HD Videos area, we've taken the liberty to spotlight a few HD favorites of our own on today's homepage.

From an epic Internet history lesson, to the serenity of a snow-covered bridge, to a visit from comedy's most beloved fake messiah, we hope there's a little something here for everyone.

Want to learn more about uploading your own masterworks in HD? Just check out this FAQ in the Help Center.

Happy (HD) Viewing!
