By default, your playback setting is set to normal.
If you know you have a very fast or very slow connection, you may want to change your "Video Playback Setting" in your account to "I have a fast connection. Always play higher-quality video when it's available." or "I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video."
To change your playback settings, follow the steps below:
Go to your Account page.
Under "Account" click the "Video Playback Quality" link.
Select the playback setting that makes sense for you.
Click the "Save Settings" button.
You can also choose to view a specific video in higher quality directly from the playback page. If the video is streaming at standard quality and is available in higher quality, you can click the link that reads "Watch this video in higher quality" underneath the video. Conversely, if you're watching the streaming video in higher quality and want to watch it in standard quality, click the link that says "Watch this video in lower quality for faster playback."http://www.google.com/support/youtube/b ... swer=91449
