I recently purchased GoPro Hero 7 Black. Now I've been recording my bike rides in 1080x30fps or 2.7Kx30 or 60 (Protune on, different settings tried). I then edit it and render it in Kdenlive to upload it to YouTube where the quality worsens a bit, if not significantly.
Now, I've read the forum and tried to increase the bitrate by rendering in Ultra high quality - see screenshot. It seems to improve a bit, bit it's still quite not the same as the local video. What can I do to improve it?
I'm attaching the screenshots.

read up on what youtube and trial and error that works for you. I do keep simple and not overly kill with codecs and wuality and it works out. I think about quality vs production can have both.

YouTube can be very finicky with video formats and bitrates and often re-render to a poorer quality if you don't get it right. In general, the preferred codec is h.264 mp-4 video. 60fps allows for higher bitrate, which usually results in better quality. Using a variable bitrate is best. For 2.7K, a target of 30Mbps with a max of 45-60Mbps usually comes out pretty good. If you need another free video editor option, I strongly suggest DaVinci Resolve.
