Default Why does a youtube video look much better on my wife's iphone viewing same video?

Please Login to Remove!

As stated, the same video being watched over the same wifi network, looks much better on my wife's iPhone than on my bold? It's like the video is being seen in HQ mode on the iPhone and low quality on my bold. Anyone know why the quality on the bold is so much worse than the iPhone?

I believe it is due to the video stream being of a different format between the two devices. YouTube for the iPhone, I believe, is streamed in MP4 format; whereas YouTube for the BlackBerry, I believe, is streamed in 3GP format.
