How to switch to HD videos while watching YouTube videos in full screen

As one of the milestones, YouTube has added a new feature. The feature will be very useful for you if you want to view a better Video quality in full screen. If the Video you’re watching is available in the HD quality, you can view it in HD when switch to the full screen mode option. All you’ve to do is, just click on the drop-down menu for switching between formats, then click on “Settings” and enable "Always play HD when switching to fullscreen (when available)". Moreover, if you want to change playback quality settings, you can do it.

The main thing you’ve to remember is, you can’t go to the previous format, if you exit the full screen mode. Regarding this YouTube says, “if you play HD video in a small player, the computer works overtime to scale down the video to fit within the player, which may result in choppy playback. It's always best to play the video size that best fits the size of the video player”.
