GoPro Hero 7 Quality problems on YouTube

Hi, I have the GoPro Hero 7 Black. Why does the quality of my Gopro video lowers when I upload it on Youtube? When watching it on my computer its excellent, but then on Youtube its bad even though it says 1080.... Or should I change my record settings on the Gopro? If anyone can help me please do it, I would be very thankful!

Re: GoPro Hero 7 Quality problems on YouTube

@tijayh1316

What video editor are you using and what are your sequence settings and export settings?

 

At 1080p/60fps YouTube allows 30 Mbps.  It's likely that your editor is exporting at a lower bitrate.

Hi @tijayh1316,

 

May I know the video resolution and frames per second you're using?

 

Thanks,

Hi @graytree76514

I am recording at 1080p at 60 frames per second.... Like I said on my Mac, the video looks good... even after editing it on iMovie its still fine... but then comes Youtube...
