Greatly appreciated! I was searching but I would have never guess the name you used for the videos.

PS: I'd love to calibrate the YouTube app on my TV, I use it daily to watch pro StarCraft 2 matches biggrin.gif.

Waste of time. There is no control over the wide variety of content. The content itself can easily be "off" from video standards so calibrating to anything but the Rec 709 standard is just a waste of time.

If you care enough about the quality of the image to calibrate it, why stream in the first place?

Most TVs default to fixed modes or settings for streaming to hide all of the compression artifacts. Pick a mode, set white level, black level, color saturation, sharpness, and pick a color temp that is close to D65 and NOT green

That's a good point.

The "streaming input" doesn't change the incoming video (i.e. doesn't make the incoming video too green or reduced gamma, or shifts blue towards green). So, nominally, the "streaming input" should be calibrated to the same standard as all HD inputs... Rec. 709 with white and shades of gray at the xy coordinates of .313/.329 which is the d65 standard coordinates. So Rec 709/d65 is the calibration standard period.

In the days of analog video, every source and every input could be off a little bit from one to another. In digital video, that doesn't happen unless some video processing is applied. So you turn off all the video processing you can and you calibrate to d65 & Rec, 709 and your display is good for any digital video source. If the source is inaccurate (and every YouTube video is different, no way to stop that) your video will be accurate. If the source is inaccurate, you will see the inaccuracies however large or small they are.

My new 50" S60 carries over the calibrated settings from my other sources. It retains my copied Cinema calibrated settings, including the Pro settings. I guess they are working on this for the newer sets.

^^^^ so does my 2 year old LG but Doug's point is well made. It doesn't make a difference if your set is dead-on-balls perfect, if the source (stream) is off, your pq will suffer.
