so before this i use a 4:3 monitor and use 1280x720 resolution with ease. but now im changing monitor to a 16:9 ratio. the max res is 1366x768. my question is, can i upload a 1366x768 video on youtube or do i need to export it as 720p or 1080p? thanks!
btw you guys can check my youtube channel hehe: www.youtube.com/jackfiqthegamers and leave some support
You can upload in whatever resolution you like. Higher is always better. Even if it's larger than your monitors resolution.
You can't take a 1366x768 recording and upscale it to 1080p, that will just look nasty. but taking a 1920x1080 image and downscaling it to 1366x768 is much better at keeping a crisp and sharp image.
It's like when you save an image is MS Paint, if you make the image way bigger you'll get a very pixelated image, but if you instead shrink the image you will be able to maintain most of the image quality.
Hope that helps.
TL;DR upscale = bad. downscale = good.
i've done my research, but the thing is when i export the downscale vid, it will look blurry, i thought it will look more better and crisp video quality i use premiere pro and default youtube 720p 29.97 export setting. help?
