Facebook Goes HD, Too

Dec 6th, 2008 | By | Category: Internet TV, Video

It looks like everybody’s going HD.

Facebook has announced that it will now support HD video:

Since we launched video last year, more than 45 million videos have been uploaded to Facebook with approximately 100,000 new videos added each day. Starting today, you’ll be able to upload higher quality videos to Facebook and also embed your Facebook videos on other websites.

Higher quality video means we’ll be supporting higher resolutions—as much as 1280 by 720 pixels (720p)—which means crisper quality than was previously possible on Facebook. Plus, we’ve upgraded our audio, too.

YouTube hasn’t announced it yet – but some videos at the site started showing up in HD earlier this week.
