Low Video Quality when Uploaded to YouTube

I edited a YouTube webseries for some friends of mine using iMovie 11. It was filmed using a Sony Handycam DCR TRV33. This is not a high definition camera, it is standard definition, but the video quality still looked pretty good when I was editing it on iMovie. I exported it to Quicktime, then uploaded it to YouTube from my desktop (I had read that this was better than uploading it directly from iMovie). In Quicktime it looked fine, but then once it was on YouTube the video quality was significantly worse. Does anyone have any tips on how I can improve this? Here is a link to the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1KPhrnisMQ
Thank you for your help.

Sorry, but I have to say that I can't really see much wrong with the movie. From the 4:3 format, would I be right in guessing that it's from a miniDV camcorder? The quality compares pretty much with my miniDV movies.
Your main problems are the lighting, with a lot of bright sun/shadow in the same shot, as the camcorder's auto exposure will struggle with this. Also you have some lens flare in some of the shots of the couple sat at the table with the wind behind them.
