Youtube Video Looks Bad In 360P

Question

When I upload the video looks good in 720p but the problem is I know that most people wouldnt bother watching 720p. When I view my video in 360p it looks really blocky. I rendered it with sony vegas but I still get the same results if I were to render the video in video wave or even upload the raw file, they always look blocky at 360p. I also noticed that straight after the upload 360p actually looks fine but after a few minutes it looks terrible. I usually record somewhere around 13000kbps and render it in either 8000kpbs or 10000kpbs. I've tried higher bitrates but I still get the same blocky, blurry quality in 360p. Despite this 720p looks fine.

 

Here's a link to one of the short tests:

This is a raw video recorded around 13000kbps:

Of course 360 is going to look 'blocky'...

 

Question is, if 720P is good, why are seeking to do them in 360?

Its just that i've seen other videos with the roxio hd pro and they dont look as blocky as this =S

I don't know what to say at this point...

 

To compare "blocky" you would have to compare the very same frames of the same capture against yours.

 

If you can do that AND supply comparative screen caps of a single frame, it would be more definitive ;)

Well I found two videos that have similar settings, both videos have a small amount of blur and "blocking" but they seem to consistently keep the frames intact in 360p.

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXL9ezWQB7E around the 1.00 mark

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADn4_qYzUqk around the 1.00 mark as well

 

I've also read somewhere that it might have something to do with the duration of the videos, these videos seem to be around 5min or longer and so youtube would pay more attention to the quality. But I don't really know if that's true.

I've also found a video with similar render settings and has the exact same problem as my tests:

 

 

it's 19 seconds so what if it has something to do with the duration?

I DON'T KNOW :huh:

 

I do not see anything I am not expecting at these low quality settings...

 

If you reduce to 240 or less they get even worse.
