I also posted this question in stack exchange for web applications (http://webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/52579/youtube-video-resolution-problem)
I recently uploaded three ~30 second .mp4 files to youtube. The first five seconds of them are displayed in 244p and then at five seconds, youtube switches them to 360p. I would like youtube to display them at 360p from zero seconds. This problem is happening in chrome browser with the html5 player.
It's important because I need to use these videos as advertisements for my company.
What am I doing wrong?
Here are the videos:
For some reason, when embedded the videos do not have this problem, but when watched on youtube and as you can see from the above photos, there is a resolution issue.
