Hello everyone, I am a quality freak. I only watch HD videos and only full screen the best looking videos. I have a strong interest in uploading YouTube game oriented videos like lots of others. I am trying to achieve the best possible quality on YouTube. I recently tried uploading lossless and even entirely uncompressed videos. I recently tried uploading 1080p H.264(lossless) footage and 1440p H.264 50mbps footage and the 1440p looked slightly better. I am trying to achieve the quality represented in the video its the best I have ever seen on YouTube.

Since Frankie doesn't say how he uploaded that video all i know is that is was 1080p 60fps.

So i guess that what i'm trying to to find out is what bit rate YouTube compresses 1080p60 video to compared to 1080p30 and 1440p.

+ I record with dxtory using the lagarith lossless video codec.
+ I own Sony Vegas and Premiere.
+ What bit-rate does YouTube compress 4k video to?
+ does H.264 lossless video look better or worse than uncompressed video once uploaded to YouTube?
+ does anyone know how Frankie rendered/uploaded that video.

1. +lagarith lossless is good.
2. +sony vegas and premiere are good
3. + this is a tough question. I am thinking 4mbps is what youtube compresses 4k video too.
4. + slightly and not noticeable quality loss
5. + don't know how he rendered

Thank You for the reply. I have one last side question and that is an issue i have when i use the x264vfw codec with premiere, the video comes out all corrupted example : http://gyazo.com/6fcd5650433d3a89df47f62ac5ffb589 and yes the frame rate is post render its not the gif.

x264vfw isn't the best x264 implementation and can "glitch" sometimes like that. I don't know what exactly the problem (x264vfw can get messy at high fps sometimes) is but I would try messing with the settings around. This may be counterintuitive but worth a try . see if it works.

Set preset to fastest option, tuning none, profile and level auto, convert to 4:2:0 yuv, vfw fourcc to x264, and log level warning of none

Thank You again for the fast reply, when you said that x264vfw isn't the best implementation of H.264 does that mean there are better alternatives? Also premiere includes H.264 but I dont see an option to render to a lossless format with it.

Id try using the "built in" h.264. in the bitrate encoding try seeing if there is a setting called constant rate factor and set that to 18.
