    Unhappy *TERRIBLE* Streaming Video Quality

    So I've been messing around with streaming video from major websites and apps, YouTube, TV.com, etc.

    With every site, the video is tiny (half the screen size but centered) and the quality is garbage (pixelated and grainy). I am used to an iPod touch where all the video, even streaming, is very smooth and polished.

    Is there a setting I'm not seeing that can alter the video, or just simply a way to make it full screen and gorgeous (smooth) like it should be?

    The only thing I can think of is to hit the menu button while the video is playing, hit more, the select "watch in high quality".

    I'm guessing on this a little bit because I don't have my phone near me at the moment, but I'm pretty sure that's right.

    So that is great if you're on YouTube, but what about any other sites that stream video? Most of them do not allow you press the menu button for HD.

    maybe when Flash 10.1 comes out this will change.

    Sometimes a "smartphone" is only as smart as its user.

    It is the fault of the website that is streaming the video if you are getting horrible quality (unless you are in an area where the coverage is not good). Nothing we can do about that other than contact the website and ask for it to be optimized for viewing on mobile phones.

    Not the Droids issue. Contact the website.

    This sounds about right. I guess I'll be sending some e-mails.
