    I was trying to watch some videos on YouTube I saw already on a MBP, but the looked like crap.

    The video on computers defaults to the lowest (360), but this video has a 1080 version.

    How can I choose on YT to play the higher quality version (I looked, could not find). :confused:

    Thanks!

    You can save YouTube to the homescreen and get higher quality than the built-in YouTube.app. Also, there is an extension for Safari on your Macbook Pro that let's you choose a default resolution and use HTML5 when possible.

    Go to youtube.com on your iPad. Then click the menu button (the button next to the address bar that looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it). Select save to home screen (or something like that. I don't have my iPad with me at the moment, so I can't check the exact wording). That's it. It'll save a shortcut to your home screen.
