    Problem with iMovie settings for high quality YouTube videos.
    I've used iMovie before, but now I'm using the new iMovie HD.

    However, now, when I export my videos and upload to youtube. the Videos come out REALLY BLURRY, even though when I play it on my computer, they look fine.

    I've been searching online, on youtube, looking for the correct settings but they never seemed to work.

    Hopefully someone here knows the correct settings so that the video isn't extremely blurry when uploaded onto youtube?

    The problem is not imovie, the problem is youtube - it compresses the mess out of your uploads, but if you are viewing the video on youtube, below the video is a link to view the same video in a higher quality clip and it is better - but to be honest I would stay clear of youtube and use one of the rival services eg vimeo

    The new iMovie is iMovie 08, not iMovie HD.

    Perhaps my Preparing Video for YouTube and iMovie Export Guide can help you figure out a formula. They are here.

    As Del said, YouTube does a terrible job. All you can do is give it the best quality you can, and use that higher quality link when available. Or, use an alternative site like Vimeo.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
