Youtube video bad quality


Recommended Posts


I uploaded a video on youtube, and the quality is bad,

i exported the same file from AE

1) .mov (h.264) 1920x1080 25 fps 223.037 kbps

2) .mov (h.264) 1920x1080 25 fps 50.000 kbps

+ I added FilmConvert Grain and some Sharpness

I uploaded them both on youtube, i can't see that Grain it is like washed out and video as i said is bad..

Ok, why?


The basic reason:  Garbage in, garbage out.  


You can use search engines to quickly find out the why and how of low-bandwidth video compression.  Understanding the technology you wish to use will ultimately make you better at it.  


Higher end studios actually hire professionals to deal with this specific issue, so it's well documented across the world wide web super information highway.


Good luck!

Youtube seems to have a much more sophisticated compression algorithm for 4K videos compared to 1080p, try uploading a native 1080p file to youtube as a 1080p file, then try upscaling it to 4K in your NLE then upload it to youtube as a 4K video, now compare both videos when playen on YT, the 4K one has much less compression. It's just something I noticed lately.

      I my last video i did a Star Trek transporter effect. It's pretty basic and i would like to create something like the transporter of the Franklin in Star Trek Beyond in my future videos.

      I would love to get feedback on my video quality and what would you add. Particulary the lighting is a area i need to work on.

      My video:

      Franklin transporter:

      I know there are worlds between my transporter effect and the pro effect from Beyond, but i would like to be able to do it some day. Imagine all the techniques that go in a effect like this.
      I'm shooting on the GH4 whit the Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH Lens.
      Thanks for reading

      Hi guys,
      I am about to start shooting videos for a youtube channel (comedy based) where a typical episode will have my friend (who is going to be the star of the show and will always be in front of the camera) will be talking to the camera and frequently the cameraman (that would be me). He and I will have a good amount of conversation on while he is being filmed that is meant to make it into the episode. I did some basic research and it seems that the "Sony ECM-77B - Miniature Omni-Directional Lavalier Condenser Microphone" is getting a lot of praise for quality. I was thinking of buying 2 of these (one to mic him and one to mic me). I will be shooting this on my Canon T3i (and if all goes well buying a Canon 70D within a couple of months to replace it). From what I read the T3i has noise level/ gain issues when it comes to external mic inputs. Is that true? If so I was thinking of buying a "JuicedLink RM202 Riggy-Micro Dual-XLR Preamplifier, No Phantom Power" to plug into my camera to make everything sound better. Is anybody on here familiar with this equipment and maybe this very setup or a setup that is very similar to this? Does anybody have any input or suggestions as to weather or not this kind of setup would work well or have suggestions to replace some of the equipment?
      Thanks a lot
