    youtube video resolution
    since I have had my new 24 inch imac I have been playing with imovie and my camcorder making short videos of my favorite hobby and posting them on youtube. the videos look ok once uploaded as long as you don't view them full screen. I would like to increase the quality of my videos to such that they look nice when viewed full screen. So my question is this, is the video being compressed to much or do I need a better video camera.

    If the video is being compressed to much before uploading it to youtube, how do I resolve this. If I need a better video camera what model will give me what I am looking for.

    What is the video resolution you are uploading? What is the full screen resolution you are displaying on? If you are blowing up the picture, then expect pixelizeation.

    No matter how good the quality is you are uploading, remember that YouTube re-encodes your upload to their specs and will reduce the data rate substantially which will cause a lower quality result. You still want to upload the best quality that you can.

    You didn't say anything about your camera, so we can't say if another one might help out. If your camera is standard def, then yes, a high def camera will help.

    See my YouTube and iMovie export guides for some helpful information.
