I have a PlayStation 3 and a HDTV, but I am unable to watch high definition video in 1080. It seems like lower resolutions are selected by default.

Is there a way to change the resolution of the video?

What is the source of the video? Is the source in 1080p? – agent86 Dec 23 '11 at 20:14

When visiting the YouTube site on the PS3 you get redirected to their special "TV" landing page, which plays with a ridiculously low resolution. Try visiting PS3 YouTube instead.
