    Great videos, but Youtube's HD is too slow and skips. Great find though.

    The slowness and skippyness is a result of your crappy internet. Get fios and everything loads and plays quickly and smoothly.

    Nice videos but in my opinion they would have been better without the music especially techno music which I despise with a passion.

    I usually agree with this, but sometimes the music goes with the video, I liked the Electronic music in that Federer video

    It also has to do with where you are relative to the server farm the videos are stored on. Google (youtube) has servers all across northamerica, and they are not all mirror images of the same data. The farther away your are from the specific server that is feeding you the data the slower your speed will be.

    Also time of day is important. I'm on DSL and during noon my download speed from google was fast enough i only encounter a few hickups. Then 6hrs later at dinner time the videos were hickupping like crazy cuz my download speed was less from other people using bandwdith on youtubes end.

    Sorry if I had found anything there about Nadal in true 720p HD i would have posted it. There is some stuff in 640x480 high quality, but nothing in HD.

    If its really HD there will be an 'HD' link instead of a 'high quality' link allowing you to see watch in true 720p HD, instead of just high quality.

    Does anyone know a way to download these videos in HD quality?
    It's exciting to see YouTube transforming into higher and higher quality videos. It won't be too long before 1080p!

    yep its a little complex but its all right here:

    http://chris.pirillo.com/2008/12/03/how-to-download-720p-high-definition-youtube-videos/

    this is a legitimate site. Chris Pirillo is a semi famous tv tech personality who used to be on The Screen Savers and Call for Help with Leo Laporte.

    I've tried firefox's Download helper plugin and that only downloads the regular def version. But this way works.

    NOTE: this bookmarklet only works for the 720p videos.

    This only works on firefox and explorer and you are also going to have to know how to use bookmarklets: http://www.bookmarklets.com/

    I've tried this a couple times on firefox and IE but nothing happens. I followed the instructions exactly too.
