Quick app quality

[ New ]

I uploaded a video to youtube after editing it in the GoPro Quick app. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWtfe18o0XA

 

The original video was shot using the Hypersmooth 4k (30fps).

After reviewing the video, the original video is of much higher quality, and it's completely noticable that the original file looks much better than the cropped/edited one using the quick software. 

 

There is a serious flaw which is cutting out most of the quality of the video and the playback goes from 4k to less than 1080.

YouTube does additional compression on videos so they play more smoothly on their platform. Initially, these videos may look grainy as their system processes the videos. After a while, the video should appear much clearer, but it will probably never be as clear as the source file that you uploaded.

Exporting from quik is 4K@30fps, the resolution on youtube says 4K, but the exported file from quik looks terrible and it is reflected on YouTube as well.
