How do you get Youtube to not compress your videos as much?

I'm thinking of re-rendering my videos at a higher resolution, not sure if that would work. Because higher resolution videos seems to be allocated more bitrate than lower resolution videos.

I don't know but I remember one of the early tricks was to pad the end of the video with lots of Black empty frames.... basically it was a 7 minute long video made 30 minutes long with the rest of the video nothing but a blank black screen. Youtube probably still compressed it but I think their algorithm at the time looked for only a certain amount of compression and the long black nothing part compressed much easier leaving the good part of the video untouched.

Not sure if that's how it worked or if it would work the same today.

your idea is right, people do that. the extra bit rate is good.

I did some research it seems up to youtube whether to re-encode ur videos in vp9 or not. Seems like vp9 is a lot better than avc1. Popular videos get the vp9 treatment.

Yeah I've tried the so-called "no compression" methods and still get quality loss when I upload.

well you're making the same "mistake" as me. you have uploaded in 1080P60, and it's avc1 so it's going to be pixellated at times probably similar to my videos. My videos are in 720P60, and also avc1 (except for one).

the trick is to upload in 1440P30 or higher res (which will force vp9)

So basically it's still a mystery to this forum :( That or the bearer of secrets is keeping it to herself.

well i edited, apparently youtube will give you vp9 if you upload at 1440P or higher res. and i think 30FPS would be less pixellated than 60 as well, because you don't get double the bitrate for 60FPS, so it stands to reason 30FPS would look better.

also you should put a spoiler tag.

Turning 60fps footage into 30fps for better image quality = blasphemy
