Making your videos look good for YouTube ?

Lots of pseudo bullshit in this thread...

Short and simple:

  • YouTube reencodes EVERY (valid) file you upload.
  • Uploading in 4K and above triggers YouTube to make VP9 (higher quality) streams almost immediately. (This is the key thing here as the MP4 stream is absolutely shit, turning your footage into macroblocking smears.)
  • You don't have a corporate or partner account, your videos will always suffer from poor bitrate. 

Good summary.

I can verify the first two because I did some extensive tests...  anyone interested can read about them here (with bonus amusing comments!):

YouTube supports MP4 and AVI format, you'd better convert your video for YouTube uploads with a converter.

No need to convert if YT accepts your file format, every re-encode loses quality - like photocopying a photocopy of a photocopy...
