View higher quality videos on YouTube

You can also just go to YouTube, and in your settings there is a setting to always force the video to show higher quality. It seems like that would be the easiest method to use.

You could chage the setting but if you are on slow internet, you may want the lowquality version most of the time

There are three options:

-Choose my video quality dynamically based on the current connection speed.
-I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video.
-I have a fast connection. Always play higher-quality video when it's available.

This tip isn't necessary.

I have the "always play high-quality" setting checked on YouTube, and still do not get the high-quality version of videos. I can reload with "fmt=18" added and immediately see the difference in quality. I think this is an error on YouTube's part, and until it's fixed I'm using this script as a workaround.
