    Exporting For YouTube - Premiere Pro CS5 (Canon XL2)

    Movie Geek

      I shot a promo video with my Canon XL2, and would like to upload the finished product to YouTube at the highest possible quality in order to help promote the company I work for.


      Footage shot in 30p at 29.97 fps, 16:9 - NTSC.


      Sequence settings are all correct and match my footage perfectly.


      I have exported the video as H.264, AVI, MOV, MP4, MP2, WMV and countless other formats. When played on my computer the video quality is SUPERB. I am ecstatic at how it turned out, HOWEVER, when I upload the video -in any format- to YouTube, it looks absolutely horrible - as though it were shot with a webcam.


      Does anyone have any advice as to what I might be doing wrong? Anyone had any experience with the XL-2 and Premiere Pro videos being ugly when uploaded to YouTube?


      Thanks a bunch!
