Was 360p high quality back in 2008?

It says high quality but it is 360p, was that it in 2008? Or is this because this animation is actually from 1980?

It was uploaded by some random guy on Youtube. He probably ripped it from somewhere else and this is the best quality it was encoded originally. Youtube can't magically make it 4k.

YouTube originally offered videos at only one quality level, displayed at a resolution of 320×240 pixels using the Sorenson Spark codec (a variant of H.263), with mono MP3 audio. In June 2007, YouTube added an option to watch videos in 3GP format on mobile phones.In March 2008, a high-quality mode was added, which increased the resolution to 480×360 pixels. In December 2008, 720p HD support was added.

Source. Damn this made me feel old.

You do realise that has nothing to do with what OP is asking right?

I disagree. When he says:

I take that as "why can't I view it higher quality?" Then the latter questions of:

comes across as a playful way of asking "why?"

 

So yes, I DO think it has something to do with what OP was asking. I know you think I'm a moron for saying one unpopular thing in an AMD/Intel/Nvidia thread, but you shouldn't take things so personal.

back then 240p was seen as low resolution and 360p+ as high

Monitors back in 2008 when that video was uploaded wasn't that fantastic either. People were either using CRTs or fat flat screens.

Wow, that's why every meme which dates back the popular use of the word "meme" is in 360p, mind blowing

No, 360p was not high quality.

360p was the highest quality supported for a while, but I remember back in the day people saying stuff like "HQ refers to the audio quality, HD to the video quality" when people complained about "HQ" videos being 360p.

Other than resolution, there are other aspects of a video that are important to the quality too, like bitrate and framerate.
