What does 240p, 360p, etc. mean?Submitted by Healer on Tue, 01/20/2009 - 17:27
We provide video at a number of resolutions so that you can decide which one works best for you.
240p is the lowest resolution. If the default resolution of 360p skips and buffers frequently, give 240p a try.
360p is the default resolution. When in normal mode, this provides a 1:1 relation between video pixels and screen pixels.
480p is an HD resolution that will make the video look better in full screen mode.
720p is our highest HD resolution, (not available on video that wasn't shot in HD), and it looks sweet in fullscreen mode if you have the bandwidth.
Keep in mind that if you pick a new resolution, it will be remembered as your default during your viewing session. You may have to choose it again if you return at a later time. Also, if a video isn't available in 720p, 480p will be selected for you automagically.
