I just captured a video with my new iPad, then used the iPad's built-in tools to upload it to youtube. I selected "high quality" but it appears to be only a 720p video on youtube (caution: kids and baby chicks herein).

Is there a way to upload a 1080p video from the iPad to Youtube?

I'm seeing a 720p version available now, maybe there's just a delay for some server-side encoding? The 1080p version could be on the way – Kyle Cronin Mar 31 '12 at 22:56
@KyleCronin It did go up to 720p, but not to 1080p, unless the processing queue is over 24 hours... – Adam Davis Apr 2 '12 at 21:19
