Re: Problem with Youtube Quality

@gediminask46

I think your bit rate is set too high. You are attempting to upscale your video to 50 bit rate but the Hero4 Session records at 25 bit rate. It's possible YouTube is reencoding the video so your not getting the quality you expect. Try exporting and then uploading at 25 bit rate.

 

Also, of course when viewing the video pick the highest resolution and turn off auto.

 

Lastly, if you want to upload your videos with the best viewing quality, you should use vimeo.com

Re: Problem with Youtube Quality

Sorry to hear about that @gediminask46.

It seems like YouTube had lowered the Mb speeds on it.

May I ask if you used an editing software to upload it?

Or just dragged and drooped the raw file. 

If the software uploaded it, it won't have the full

res and specs as of exporting it, then uploading the video.

Re: Problem with Youtube Quality

Your video defaults to 144 if you click the cog and choose 1080 its fine. Youtube seems to be doing this a lot lately.

Re: Problem with Youtube Quality

It looks fine @gediminask46.

Like @rapidpike0384, said you just need

to change the settings on the little tool bar.
