Did you use scopes and a properly calibrated broadcast monitor to check? If not, do so, otherwise it is a meaningless statement. If yes, post the screen shots from both.
How do you get a screen shot from a broadcast monitor?
Photo camera = shot of the screen, roughly translated into screenshot.
Same with the scopes.
Oh... a low -tech method
...of dubious value!
hard to answer really...except to cut a long story short...
In this case your end product is youtube. think of that as your "printer" connected to your computer.
When you output to your printer, if it looks too "orange" or whatever, you can calibrate your monitor to more exactly "match" what the printer is printing..
To do THAT you hold a print up to your monitor and match the colors of the image you printed on your monitor....most people use color swatches and grayscales and so on....to get a wide range of the color values , gamma, etc.
soooo, you make your monitor look like the print....and NOW you can use your color adjustments in the program being used ( editor, photoshop, etc ) and really see more accurately what you will get when you make a print.
In THIS case it's not a print from your printer, but a picture from YouTube.....
Soooo, what you want to do is look at the YouTube video product ( on the web ) and adjust your monitor in the PROGRAM ( cs5) to match what the product is....the YouTube video....
Once you have the same orange color you see in YouTube product as you see in CS5 project monitor, you can NOW adjust your colors to the way you want them to match...
It's really the same sort of calibration that happens with all color related stuff and is NOT a problem with cs5 or YouTube...it's just a matter of matching the product (output and viewing ) to the creator of that image color etc...so that future products will be what you expect.
and that's the "short" answer...hehe...but it works
sooo, unfortunately you probably don't have all the equipment and tools to make that happen easily... ( color spaces , LUT , icc profiles , whatever....) and you will have to export, upload, look, adjust as needed .... that's the fastest for what you are using probably.

The simplest explanation to the OP is that when you compress an image...you are throwing away
data. That includes color data.
Its kind of pointless trying to compensate on a hit and miss basis. You will end up chasing your tail.
Maybe worth trying is a light desaturation of the original "problem" color (red) before exporting.
this stuff sure gets bizzarre sometimes.
would probably be a color correction on a clip that you can save and then apply later to all clips to youtube ?...
ok that might be a way to fix it i guess, thanks
I don't really get why having a color calibrated monitor will fix any
problem like it sounds like some of you are saying, I know that will help for getting accurate colors but I am simply talking about
there being a difference in the two video files, this is before they are uploaded to youtube or even color correcting or anything.
just the fact that there is a difference in look between 2 formats without doing anything different in the program is what the problem is
Create Color Bars in PPRO and export a clip of it using the
two encode methods. Do a comparison and let us know what uyou find.
Dont over stress the "calibrated monitor' refrain.
For your purposes ..use the same monitor to view both encodes. We assume you are doing that...arent you?
well now I'm baffled. can you avoid exporting to a format that makes it orange and just see what "the web" does to something else ? I mean, why make it h264 for "the web" ? Who's web is it anyway ? It's YOUR web as much as anyone's ! So you can give it what you want maybe...and it doesn't ( in my opinion ) HAVE to be more orange ! Stand up for your rights ! export to something that doesnt make everyong look like "The Thing" in the fantastic four comics ....!
Good luck !
