With the popularity of more video camera or camcorders that can capture full HD (High Definition) 1080p video source, YouTube sees the needs for users to directly upload the true high definition source files without being capped by its maximum resolution of 720p at this moment. Good news now, the famous video sharing website is planning to upgrade its infrastructure to officially support the full high definition 1080p (1920 X 1080 resolution) media clips by next week.

As current YouTube supports only 720p (1280 X 720 resolution) resolution, 1080p full HD is at least two steps upgrade that allows users to upload and playback any clips with additional resolution between 1080i (interlace mode) up to 1080p (progressive mode). No doubt, this is so far the highest resolution that can be supported by most LCD TVs in the market and users can soon be able to project the media playback to larger LCD TV screen for greater visual experience. Nevertheless, the maximum length of movie clips will still be kept at 10 minutes, even though the exact size will be much more bulky and may take longer time for the media streaming to reach your PC depending on your broadband bandwidth and stability.

Regardless of what it is, this is definitely one of the great milestones since PC will eventually be moved into living room as a multimedia center hub to receive internet contents directly replacing conventional TV.
