I’ve noticed the Youtube embed looks better in full screen than the Facebook embed. It looks like the Facebook embed is not even HD! Does Facebook allow HD embeds? It sure doesn’t look like it. If you click through to the original Facebook video and make it full screen, you’ll see it looks a lot better than the embed. Are our HD videos truly free from the walled garden of Facebook? I don’t know. Granted, the Youtube HD embed requires a hack to the embed string to watch in HD, it still should be noted that there isn’t a way to embed the Facebook HD at all. If there is, please let me know in the comments.
As it stands, the Youtube solution is more attractive to me at the moment since I want the HD experience outside of the Youtube site. Plus, the Youtube community destroys the Facebook video community. I’m not sure why Youtube or Facebook won’t make the HD embed option a main feature. If DailyMotion can do it, why can’t they?
