This. I voted 1080 because I like the format, but 720 is very practical to shoot in with current sports cameras (higher frame-rates)

I film in 720 with my roam helmet cam, but 1080 with my zoomcam. Then I make my videos in 1080 in Sony Vegas. I usually end up zooming in on my zoomcam footage but it still looks decent.

At least to me...

I was wondering the same thing. Whether 1080 30 fps or 720 60 fps is more preferable. I like 1080, but I don't know if the 30 less frames is worth it.

Youtube changes 60 fps to 30 fps... The only benefit is if you slo-mo in your editing. Uploading in 60 fps is pointless.

Much of the broadcast TV is filmed in 720 then upconverted to 1080 for broadcast...

I also record all of my stuff in 5.1 dolby surround sound... but, youtube can't handle that, so it makes it stereo... I've talked to tech support quite a bit trying to get the best possible video quality on youtube, and their system has tons of things it does that people don't realize. But, it is better than most of the others out there, as it plays on just about any device. I'm hoping that when they go to 5.1 surround, my files will work that way, as it is cool when I watch my rendered files in my theater and you can hear guys behind you talking, and then hear movement in front of you from your enemies!

I watch all of the HK army videos in 1080p because they're awesome.

Basically, if it's in 1080p, I watch it to better make out what's going on.

This is true for me as well. If I'm at home then always 1080 but if on my cell on the road then 720.

Very much agreed. When I said I use YouTube's "larger" player, I was meaning exactly what russc said.

I use 1080p if it's available, but I could really care less between 720p or 1080p.

I had to vote 720p because the screen on my laptop is max, 720p and if I put it on 1080p it gets all juddery.
