Many youtube videos have the option of "Watch in High Quality" below the video. However you can only embed them in normal quality. After doing a little research, I found a website that allows you to embed any youtube video that has the option of "watch in high quality" in high quality.
Just copy the last part of the video URL after the v= in the url and paste it in the box and it will give you the embed code.
Here is an example:
Normal quality with embed code youtube gives you.
High Quality with the embed code the website gives you.
Since the video URL is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgODgN--HGM
copy HgODgN--HGM which is after the V= and paste it in the box.
So if you ever want to embed a youtube video in high quality, thats how you do it.
