    There is no HD or High quality option in Youtube on my new Mac Pro. I tried both safari and FF. I know its not the tube because I have the option on my MacBook Pro. Is it a plug in issue or something? Anyone encounter the same problem? Youtube forums are useless and so is a google search.

    Did you update the Flash player? (Alternatively what version is it? Type about:plugins into the address bar to find out.)

    all you have to do is add the following to the end of the url if you don't see the option:

    "&fmt=18" for HQ
    "&fmt=22" for HD

    (no quotes of course)
