VUDU gets High-Definition YouTube update

No press release, in fact no fanfare at all, but we're hearing that VUDU have released a minor upgrade for their Netflix streamers that allows users to watch high-definition YouTube content, rather than standard definition.  Previously, viewers were given no option to switch between the two formats (if HD was available); now, VUDU automatically prioritizes the high-definition clip.

Just couple months ago, Vudu added its HDX video download with quality equivalent of Blu-Ray, then a high-end rack-mount version of HD media streamer a month later; the company is now hoping to secure the increasingly crowded online streaming market, with a newly launched Rich Internet Application Platform that offers total of 120 channels web based video content to its subscribers, with no extra cost.

Just weeks ago words got out that Vudu was testing a new format of HD download with quality equivalent of Blu-Ray, and today the HDX is out officially. The new format encodes video at variable bit-rate of MPEG-4 H.264 format in 1080p at 24 frames per second, and promises to deliver twice the quality of any VOD contents currently available on the market.
