My GoPro Hero 5 footage pixelates in YouTube but not in My computer

The camera is upto date with the software, connected with GoPro app and checked.

When I edit my GoPro videos in windows movie maker or with Sony Vegas Pro 13 - the videos looks good in desktop or mobile, but when I upload in YouTube it starts pixelating for every 4 seconds once.. and in this way no one will watch my videos in YouTube, could you please help me with any software updates ?

Note : I rendered the videos in these softwares with the same bit rate as that of the GoPro footage.

Re: My GoPro Hero 5 footage pixelates in YouTube but not in My computer

You want to make sure you are rendering your video in a format and bitrate that is compatible with YouTube. For the best quality, render (export) the video as 4K/60fps with a bitrate of 78 Mbps (even if your video and sequence setting is in a lower resolution). If your sequence is 30fps, use 56 Mbps.
