So I recently bought the Roxio Game Capture HD Pro and have been having a lot of issues with uploading to Youtube in HD. That's the whole reason I bought the HD Pro so that I could record my Xbox 360 gameplay in HD and then upload it to Youtube in HD. In saying that, when I am initially capturing my footage I have set it to HD 720p under the options in the Capture program and have changed my Xbox 360 display settings to 1080i. I seem to be able to capture the gameplay in HD and even when I'm working with it in Videowave it seems to still remain in HD. However when I'm trying to upload it to Youtube the maximum quality that I get is 480p which I could have gotten with the standard roxio game capture.
When I'm done editing my videos I render them through Videowave and choose the settings of NTSC and Windows Media Video 9, 1920x1080 VBR. I have heard that this is the best setting in order to get HD quality on youtube, but clearly this hasn't worked. I have gone through all sorts of forums as well as tutorials on youtube, but nothing seems to work. If anyone can please help me fix this problem that would be fantastic. I'll post a link to the one video (had others, but deleted them due to their poor quality) so you can see what I'm talking about. I'll also put my computers specs in case that helps.
PS I'd also like to say now that I would prefer avoiding any advanced technical jargon as I may not be able to understand it, however I'm not a complete idiot with a computer.
