Laura Bergells, who runs Maniactive linked to this tip on Lifehacker.

This quick hack allows you to quickly view a higher quality video on YouTube.

All you need to do is suffix “&fmt=18” without the quotes at the end of your YouTube URL.

Laura has put up some samples in her post along with more details. Thanks, Laura.
