Default poor quality of video display

We are using livestream pro and have the video display set at 16:9 aspect ratio and at High H264 Beta (700 Kbps). We feel this setting fits with how we are creating and uploading our videos. But the display on livestream is awful:

the same videos displaying on our youtube channel look much better:

why the disparity? and how do we correct the display on livestream?

tokeeffe,

Are you directly uploading your content from a saved file locally, or are you importing from your YouTube channel?

I would suggest uploading your videos from the higher quality local recordings as the YouTube tool only imports the lowest quality video.

tokeeffe, to elaborate on what Matt is saying, uploading files from YouTube which are already heavily compressed, are likely going to go through another round of compression. Also keep in mind that 700kbps is a lower data rate than some of the very high data rate YouTube videos. That's why uploading from a high quality source video that hasn't already been heavily compressed, will give you better quality.

Smile Same problem different source

We uploaded on the company channel (premium account) a MP4 HD quality and the screens are fuzzy and blurry...However if we play locally the MP4 the quality is perfect...

What are the parameter that our video should be to keep the same crisp quality on the company channel?

Thank you in advance!

leel00,

We may need to look at the source file in this case... Please call our Premium Support line or open a support ticket so that we can troubleshoot with you more directly:
