I just put some videos in YouTube. 1st time!
The quality seems way worse than original or even just played out of my video files from phone.
Any suggestions to what I’m doing wrong?
Small words as I am very raw at this.

Thanks
Mike

I think that might be a YouTube setting. Try fiddling with the video upload quality on YouTube.

Have you looked lately? Sometimes the initial quality is rough, and it takes them a while to provide the final quality.
Also, if your connection is slow, you won’t automatically get the maximum resolution you posted. Also remember, due to compression, the online video will never be quite as good as the original, but pretty darn close with a good connection.

upscale your footage to 4k if it is 1080, bitrate is at least 35mbps

I went on and changed to 1080p. The best it had and cleared up.
My other videos only come in at 240p. That’s as high as it will go.
Playing right out of my videos looks great but on YouTube only 240p. Which is bad.

Here’s the link to the one I just changed to 1080p.

I know- I should have gotten closer
