Default Youtube- HD- Post your favorite clip

I have been obsessed with the HD feature that youtube has. I cant stop watching this basejumping video:

YouTube - B.A.S.E Jumping HiGH DEFiNiTiON 1080p.

Post your favorite HD video on youtube here, this should be fun.

Awesome video. Is there a way to search only 1080 videos?

It's hard to say. The only skydiving offered down here is in lower Sugarloaf and I don't remember them having a twin engine plane.

Other wise, it does really look like the keys.

Oh c'mon, it wasn't that long ago.

All of the Amigas had both interlaced and non-interlaced video modes. The 320 x (nnn) modes were non-interlaced, whereas the 640 x (nnn) modes were. Display mode was entirely controlled by the applications- each one set whatever mode was required when it opened. Although the machine was multitasking and GUI-based, applications did not open inside the desktop like on a modern Windows or Mac system. All applications ran fullscreen outside the desktop, and you could page between applications and the desktop, or click and drag the top of an application to pull it down like a windowshade revealing the application behind it. But no apps inside of windows.

The really cool thing (from a tech geek standpoint) was that you could have both interlaced and non-interlaced programs open and on the screen at the same time. So when you had a non-interlaced app partially pulled down to reveal an interlaced app behind it (or vise-versa), the machine rendered the screen as interlaced and double-scanned the non-interlaced portion. As soon as the interlaced app was minimized, it immediately went non-interlaced with no glitch whatsoever. You just noticed that one moment the screen was flickery, and the next moment it wasn't. Ditto for applications running in different resolutions even within the same scan mode. It just automagically switched to the lowest mode required to render whatever combination of apps was visible at any one time. And not like changing resolutions in Windows where the screen goes blank for a second. The machine simply switched video modes on the fly as needed.

And don't get me started on the audio. The sound on that machine was natively wavetable-based almost a decade before the phrase was even invented.
