    Is it possible to get the AppleTV to stream at least a 720p video from youtube without it being super fuzzy? I tested one out at the Apple store with this video and others and they were significantly fuzzy. Is there a setting or something that can make it play at 720p or does it just look that bad?

    It depends on the quality of the video. If the video on YouTube is in 1080p, it'll playback in 1080p. If it is 480p, it'll play in 480p and so on.

    U make it sound like YouTube = Netflix, so they will send u whatever resolution ur device is capable of.,. NOT.

    YouTube gives u user submitted contents, so whatever those qualities are, that's what u get. I suppose u can send the author an email, hey your clip sucks, can't you post better? ^)
