TechVideoBlog has measured the HD qualities of the various video services now offering HD video sharing, and it looks like YouTube and Facebook are now the leaders. 

Here are the specs they measured, along with links to example videos:

  • Youtube HD: 1280×720 – 2mbit/s H264 – full framerate – 44hz stereo 254kbit/s AAC audio
  • Facebook HD: 1280×720 – 2.5mbit/s H264 – full framerate – 44hz 146kbit/s AAC stereo audio
