Well, it happened gradually, but the Google gremlins have managed to eliminate the max quality for all videos once again even after the flashgot patch that fixed it about 2 weeks ago. How persistent they are in denying us video rippers what we want. They go as far as eliminating 480p as well. How sickening.

This just showed up on 4chan, apparently the "new" 1080p videos look much worse than the old ones. You can see the drastic decrease in video quality, it looks awful. So even if we figure out how to download 1080p again it looks like the video quality will suck.

@Kuro

That looks like a fake 1080p, the one on the right. It probably got upscaled from lower resolution just to fool people.

Sadly also reporting the same thing is happening here again.

Another example video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OosDAxzEtSU

In the (Flash) player I can select 1080p, but the options available only go up to 720 as before:

It's a bit inconsistent - earlier in the week I could still download most videos in 1080p, although some took a while before that option became available.

Given the GHacks post above, it sounds like it's going to be more of a pain to make the desired quality downloadable until perhaps it's just flat out improbably difficult.

My DL options look EXACTLY like this for almost every video now.

What could be the possible reason in Google denying higher res downloads. Infact uploads are meant to be downloaded aren't they? Bandwidth issue or trying to become commercial..?

Wow, are you a wizard or something, user? xD Thanks for that simple muxing instructions, too.

Btw, just to make sure, do you think you could get 480p flv to appear like before as well? Or is that downright impossible now?

Before I used a loophole, now they fixed it, so no flv. And what's wrong with 480p mp4?

Nothing, really. It's just that 480p flv appears to be slightly higher quality than mp4, because last time I checked those 2 formats from the same video with MediaInfo, flv seems to have slightly higher video and audio bitrate than those of mp4 not to mention they are slightly bigger in filesize, too.

I know that they're both usually encoded with h264; am I right in this case in assuming 480p flv is superior to mp4? Or perhaps am I just being a total anal about it since the difference is negligible?
