    The highest quality available on your YouTube is 360p, so whatever conversions you are doing is severely downsizing the image. What software are you using?

    Me too (480p OK), though not so good when you blow it up to full screen. But that's Youtube, not your cam, or even your encode. Of course mp4 is going to look worse! - You are probably shrinking it to a tiny fraction of it's original RAW size.

    Do a few seconds-worth clip upload, sent using your highest-available h.264 bitrate, full hd rez & framerate, and see if the quality gets any better. My guess is: a little but not a lot.

    @smrpix, I think that max depends greatly on your downlink capability.

    I was on an ipad, so that may have been a limiting factor as well. (We're also all assuming OP isn't shooting 480 in the first place.)

    I agree with you Scott, that camera produces h.264 in a mov wrapper and a short original clip can be easily uploaded for comparison.
