So in order to get higher quality video they are down sampling audio more significantly. Frankly I would rather have better audio and 720p video as 1080p video is great on a big screen but on computer it's unecessary however several songs sound terrible at 128kbps 44Khz. For example listen to 128kpbs MP3 of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin or Daughter by Pearl Jam and you will hear compression artifacts that would make the songs nearly unenjoyable. Until bandwidth technology catches up I would rather see the audio less compressed but video at a lower resolution. However the fact that I have to watch videos in flash in the first place bothers me more than the sound quality issues.
