right now videos are encoded in 3 resolutions, the default you see is
the small one, possibly just going to Action and selecting a higher
resolution might be enough.
otherwise have a look at padma/extract.py
def oggVideo(videoFile, videoStreamFile, size=128):

gets called from the model with 128 and 320, to create those videos from
the uploaded video. instead of creating 128 or 320 wide videos you could
change that, in the current code base its not easy to change the
resolution without also looking at some other places in javascript to
adjust the display size.
