I recently edited a short film on iMovie. It turned out great, the quality and clarity of playback on iTunes and Quicktime player is excellent. BUT, when I upload to Youtube.com or Vimeo.com it looks terrible. The video quality is horrible...

What am I doing wrong?

Are there any video sharing websites similar to Youtube or Vimeo that upload in a Quicktime format and playback in Quicktime?? I would really prefer to host my videos in the format that looks best!

Thanks,
Steve

I had the same problem. If you upload straight to YouTube through iMovie (which I do) use the highest possible size (which, if I remember correctly, is Medium for YouTube). Then if the movie does not automatically play in high quality, theres a little link at the bottom right of your video window that says "watch in high quality". When you click that it, obviously, plays in higher quality. Usually I put a note in the description to let my viewers know they should watch it in High Quality. Other than that you can export it even bigger to Quicktime and upload it manually from YouTube, but I don't know if your movie will fit, depending on how large it is.

Good luck!

Ann, can't find it. Give an exact link if you want people to check it out, or much better search terms.
