this has been a painful drama for days, trying to get a nice video on youtube for my girlfriend. It looks great on the mpg file sony vegas generates, but after uploading to youtube it look more than crap.
The original videos were shot with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS7 which uses quicktime mov format. The settings of these files are shown below, as seen in the detail tab of the properties of the video:

I tried several settings, and in my last attempt I used the video tutorial below to borrow the settings:
The resulting video looks great when playing locally (like all the ones before), but after uploading to youtube it has the same problems as the ones I had uploaded before:
I tried to convert the rendered video using the SUPER app, to see if it improves something. THe link in this (just checked and it really look bad, and at a much worse screen resolution.): watch?v=OUBpdAjuNO8
I also tried to upload directly one of the many quicktime MOV files, to see if the problem is with the original format.
The resulting youtube video is below, there are many problems with the original MOV film after it got uploaded to youtube:
I had installed the latest quicktime version. I read somewhere that sony vegas 10 requires an older version of quicktime, the 7.1.6 to work without problems.
I had doubted of this, but I just can't understand how a video run perfectly locally, and after uploaing it looks really bad :/
If nothing else works, I will try to downgrade my quicktime, but looking at the original file on youtube, now it looks the problem is some incompatibility with the mov. I would just had tought that after the video was rendered by sony vegas, this "supposed" incompatibility would be gone...
any help is welcome :) I uploaded the rendered video, if this helps in anyway to find the problem. You can confirm that it looks great locally?
