Youtube woes: Is the default view 'normal view' for the SD videos better than the HD videos? Absolutely, yes!

Does the YouTube default view 'normal quality' of the HD video looks even worse than the default 'normal quality' of the SD vids? Check out the embedded vids below and decide which of the two LOW res default views is best. Of course forcing the high quality or HD views is the best option:
High Quality: Here is the link to the HIGH QUALITY view on YouTube:
HD 720p: Here is the link to the actual HD view on YouTube and not the low resolution default view of the HD:

So here is the DEFAULT 'normal view' embed code from the YouTube Site: this is SD 640x480 video displayed in the LOW RESOLUTION as seen on YouTube:

Of course, we can get around this by adding the following code to the end of the URL in the param name and the src in the YouTube embed code: &ap=%2526fmt%3D18
YouTube should offer us the default and the high quality code... yes, we like it when it's easy!

Using the DEFAULT 'normal view' embed code from the YouTube site: THIS ONE is the HD720p video
