Just added support for the higher quality youtube videos. This page explains how Youtube's high quality video currently works - basically you have to add "&fmt=18" / "&fmt=22" / etc. to the youtube video page URL, and this selects the appropriate higher quality video (if available). Now this also works with Overstream.net.

I noticed that some of these higher-quality youtube videos are widescreen and therefore have a different aspect ratio from the normal-quality videos.

As many of you know, you can change the size of the Overstream Player manually when embedding it: just find the width and height in the embed code and change them (both in the object tag and in the embed tag). The reason I am saying this is that the widescreen video will look better if you change the size of the player appropriately, otherwise there is all that wasted vertical space.

Thanks for telling me that. And just want you to know, if the video is in widescreen. Make the size not that wide so you can have subtitles in a black area so it wont get in any part of the video. (So it wont block any part of the video)
