For example if I do a youtube search for a "random video" I get directed to a url like:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pXfHLUlZf4

When where I really want to end up is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pXfHLUlZf4&fmt=22

Is there any easy way to get this done?

You can't if they aren't available! Other than that you can choose in your profile to always show videos in the highest quality available:

If you have Firefox and GreaseMonkey, or Opera at all, use this userscript: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/41212

If you're logged into youtube, there's an option to always play high quality videos. If you go to settings you'll find the option here.

Doesn't play it in the fmt=22 format, whoever upvoted this didn't read the question. –  Andrew G. Johnson Aug 26 '09 at 14:03
