It has 1920x1080 pixels, but it's compressed so it doesn't really matter.

Depends on the quality of the original file uploaded.

From my experience, you won't find a single YouTube video that doesn't look compressed

I've found some good ones. Still compressed, but good. Just really depends on the source.

i've never seen a youtube video that actually looks 1080p in 1080p quality mode.

however some videos say original quality or whatever and they actually are 1080p.

even with a static image it's more like 540p than 1080p

some people really know how to encode video and still make it through youtube's recompression

i can count the number of videos on one hand though
The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

According to this:

Maximum Playback Bitrates on YouTube

FLV HQ: 1.5 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 3.0 Mbps)
MP4 720p: 4.0 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 5.0 Mbps)
MP4 1080p: 8.0 Mbit/s (variable bitrate with peaks of 10.0 Mbps)

8Mbps is.... not very high. Blu rays are usually around 35, I think. Sony XDCam (Pro stuff) tops out at 50.
I find your argument is based on unqualified assumptions, faulty logic, and pipe dreams.

as stated there is no set bandwidth for what constitutes 1080p.

even when you are watching it on cable it is likely different than someone else watching the same show from a different provider
