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

good point. yea i don't want to make my videos 30fps just for better image quality either. however i mean, you do what you have to do i guess. difference of 30 to 60 for videos isn't that significant. but the image quality boost can be significant so...

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.

Ugh.. so basically you're completely screwed if you want to upload at 60fps?

i don't know, i'm trying to figure out the missing link too. but one thing is for sure, all those popular let's plays are in VP9, and most videos that we upload (if not all) are gonna be in avc1.

the 1 vp9 video i have (by some miracle) is much better quality than the rest of my recent videos (same settings):

Maybe if you monetize your channel then you'll get vp9?

i monetized my channel already (well only my recent videos), didn't change much as i hoped. subconsciously you tell yourself if the video has ads in the beginning the rest of the video will be better quality too...but no, it's just the ad that's supreme quality.

It likely just comes down to Google not wanting to waste extra bandwidth unless the stream is feeding them good revenue. So plebs get the watered down s***. Or maybe those on YouTube Red get better by default.

I'm waiting on someone to explain it to me. It's not just youtube. I uploaded an Overwatch clip to twitter and that s*** looked like it was under 240p. But everyone else's twitter videos look fine.

The quality changes based on your bandwidth, also some video uploads are done piecemeal and the lower quality version is the one you can see initially

You mean when it changes between the highest stream options available and the lowest when you're viewing?

We're talking about how uploading it in high quality never has it remotely near source, while first-class channels seem to get it as good as HD source. And ads of course.
