why are youtube's vids so shitty? (quality)

My video card is more than capable of handling anything i could watch on youtube. dont know if that has anything to do with it though. i would like to be able to watch the vids on youtube in full screen mode without it looking like crap if possible. (is it possible?) the reason i think that some people can do this is that i was watching a World of warcraft vid on youtube and i read a few of the comments on the vid that are usually posted below it by those who have previously veiwed it. apparently.. they could tell the level of the charachter being played because they commented that it was way higher than is allowed. (private server for the game allows it though)
well the point is, the guy never says what level he is. you would have to be able to read it. and it's small. i could not read it in full or small screen mode. is there a way to improve the quality of the vids?

its not an issue with your computer, its the compression and resolution the video that has been uploaded. For those videos to load quickly and not cost a fortune to host, they are very low resolution. So when you expand it to full screen there isn't the information physically present to correctly display at a larger resolution, so the pixels are "stretched"...
