YouTube HD hack discovered

CNET has an article about a way to view the full 720p version of videos uploaded to popular video sharing site YouTube. The trick is to, after a high-quality video has been uploaded, add “&fmt=22” to the end of the URL. This new addition, if made permanent would be great addition to the site, allowing for higher qualify videos of news to be uploaded and enjoyed by all (as well as other content).
