YouTube Playlist HD

Hi guys,
Do you know how to make videos play in 720P or 1080P when you watch videos in the YouTube Playlist plugin? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Adam

I don't have the plugin, but you 'might' be able to work this into the code somehow...

Naturally higher quality means larger filesize and more bandwidth; make sure most users can accomodate this.

Cheers!

First you need to make sure 720 and/or 1080 versions of the video exist, otherwise the plugin might crash or just display a blank screen. Thise formats must exist.

If they do, then look at the Das_video_playlist.m file for this method-

- (void)tableView:(UITableView *)tableView didSelectRowAtIndexPath:(NSIndexPath *)indexPath{


In there you'll see this:

videos objectForKey:@"medium"

you need to change that to one of these:

1080p = "hd1080"
720p = "hd720"

I made this an option in the Control Panel you can select per video for my YouTube Streamer plugin which uses the same HCYouTube Parser that aussiedras' awesome plugin also uses.

Thank you for the help @ATRAIN53. I have your YouTube streamer plugin and I like the feature of being able to change the video quality from the control panel.

Hey Smug,
I understand the higher bandwidth and everything, but 360P doesn't look too good when you're trying to watch sports highlights. I moved it up to 720P and looks a lot better.
