    if the video is 720p does the youtube app select the highest quality to play?

    720p
    480p
    240p

    I believe it picks the highest and it limits out at 720P. I know for a fact that it doesn't support 1080P or anything higher.

    It's crappy on 3G, HD on Wi-Fi, but you can also get HD via 3G if you have My3G installed.

    .flv and .mp4 are different files types and have different sizes.

    The Apple Youtube app will limit quality over 3G. However, you can use the Google Youtube Webapp and click on the HD button to get high quality over 3G. Just remember this uses a LOT of data if you have a limit. Over WIFI, either app should be HD.
