How to download HD youtube videos using gPodder

March 17 2014, 5:51am

Since miro support for youtube recently broke (I've since posted a fix), I was giving gpodder a try and noticed it was only downloading youtube videos in standard definition. In order to enable HD downloads from youtube, open preferences, click 'edit config' scroll to the bottom where you can set the youtube fmt you'd like to download and change it from 18 to 22.
