    I'm sorry maybe I wasn't specific enough....I mean it seems as tho YouTube doesn't recognize it as a hd video but when I search "iPhone 4 test video" on YouTube I see high quality videos and e en have the option to watch them in 360p 480p or 720p but that tab isn't available on my video. I uploaded from my pc and exported from iPhone in 720p

    The HD video recording function works great on the iPhone 4, what you are experiencing is that, HD videos shot on the phone are not going to be HD quality when uploaded directly from the phone. In order to keep the 720P format you have to connect the phone to the computer and then download the video off the phone. That way you can upload the video to youtube. etc. Yea this is something that Apple didnt include in their little keynote.
