    Youtube converts it to flv or webm or something similar.
    No matter what you do, it'll always convert it.

    Transcoding and compression will always reduce quality. It's the only way to make these videos suitable for streaming.

    YouTube compresses the quality of the original videos uploaded to the website, if you don't want this to happen then simply don't upload to YouTube but rather give people download links of your video samples.

    I can't remember a streaming website that keeps the original quality, well, I do but it's long gone and I've already forgot what it was called too.

    YouTube encodes all video and audio that were uploaded, even when they are already encoded to supported format.

    In short, there will always be more compression artifacts.

    Is there any way to make it similiar like the the rendered video?
    Other videos have better quality than this one.

    If you have higher upload speed you can upload even higher quality video and hope YouTube doesn't do much damage to it.

    Try uploading 30FPS video, 60FPS is useless anyway as Youtube just cuts out half the frames.

    That doesn't affect the still frame quality. Usually upscaling (4K - 2160p) while rendering does help with quality, not sure if Youtube converts it do a different file (other than .flv) or the player outputs 4K - 2160p resolution with less "jaggies" and better colours.

    Youtube is silly

    I know, but he said it looked far worse in motion :P It looks okay to me, honestly. Youtube becomes REALLY crap in dark areas, it's just artifacts all over the place and it's impossible to see anything.

    YouTube is really weird with frame rates too. I once uploaded a 30 fps video that got turned into a 25 fps video.

    Upload to Mega.co.nz and then give people the links for them to see it with uncompressed quality, otherwise you gotta stick to what YouTube or other video website streams offer.

    30 FPS on YouTube ? Either my eyes are playing tricks on me but, i watched gameplay of Forza 5 lately, maybe my eyes tricked me into letting me believe it was at 60 FPS ?

    Youtube cuts it all down to 30fps, but with fancy rendering and high quality videos, it's pretty hard to tell the difference.

    Weird, I never notice any sort of down scaling when I upload videos. Certainly not to a degree I actually NOTICE, anyway.

    Maybe it has to do with the format of your video? Like size or somethin'. I always upload 1920x1080 and never seen any difference.

    Turn the settings on Tube up to 720 then look, it's the exact same thing.

    If you can output 1080 do it. No point in not giving the extra option.

    Youtube actually converts the video into multiple different files/ file extensions, both for each resolution (360p, 480p, 720p, etc) and each device. So he may get more desirable results if he renders the video in a higher resolution.

    Also, it will turn up when people filter for only 1080p or 2160p (that may be seen as an ass move though).
