Hi, I'm having a very serious issue with ALL the videos on youtube, its like this, when ever I click the "HD" button on youtube, the size of the video changes (16:9) and instead of showing "HD" quality, the videos are simply stretched with the same quality resulting in an even bad quality video, this is the second time its happening and this was Youtube's fault previously which they fixed in a week or two but this time its been like a month and its still there, does anyone have any idea wha's going on? Im freakin sick and tired of it, all videos look like crap, whats up with Youtube!??!? :cen:

It's how it's supposed to happen. It moves the size into proper HD resolution... :)

Everytime I go on a video, its automatic 16:9 and stretched, but then all I have to do is press the HD button. It stays widescreen but gives me HD too.

No, that's the problem, the size is moved to its proper dimensions but the video quality is the same (i.e SD) blurry and pixelated instead of becoming sharp and having better quality, it just gets stretched.

Are you absolutely sure that youve tried a proper HD video? Its very easy to upscale regular quality video to fit YouTubes definition of HD.
