    Apple said that 5.0 iOS would support it but I never seen that option at all and not even on the native YouTube app either....

    I think when on WiFi, the iOS YouTube app automatically loads the best quality video (i.e. HD).

    Not from what I have seen, videos look like crap regardless of your connection with the youtube app.

    If you're using the mobile site it's High Quality at best. If you're using the native iOS YouTube app it's 720p HD at best. There is a difference.

    You sure the native app runs 720p over wifi by default ? On the iphone 4

    If it's not it's darn close. I've seen some very sharp videos (no noticeable compression) and they take FOREVER to load. Load the same video through m.youtube.com, it's high quality where the compression is noticeable and it loads quickly. There's an obvious difference in file size.

    Just curious, since the iPhone doesn't actually have a 720p display, how can you see the difference?

    I don't know what videos you're watching or what wifi your network you're connected to, but if i'm connected to wifi some of the videos i've watched look and sound pretty damn good. Not to say that automatically means it's 720, but it makes me wonder...
