Use the H.264 YouTube preset.
Doesnt look bad to me.
If youwatch it right away on youtube; it wil look bad. youtube puts up a temp copy until it had time to render the final copy. the initial ver always looks bad. Wait an hour before watching it on youtube; then it will be the copy youtube has fully processed.
Thanks for that hint about Youtube putting up a temp file Curt.
The file looked good here too.
One thing I did notice is that the Youtube version only went up to 720HD
The Youtube preset for HD is only 1280x720
If you increase you Level from 3.2 to 4.2 you can then export out a 1920x1080 since you are using 1080p
I know for me whenever I watch anything on Youtube I always play 1080 when I have the choce.
