60 vs 30 FPS for YouTube? Best Quality?

So I just received my GoPro Hero Session 4 and noticed the videos look very very good locally on my computer, but as soon as uploaded to YouTube. I have tried to tinker with the exporting settings in GoPro Studios from 15 MBPS all the way to 50MBPS but it changes nothing. I am comparing my videos to other GoPro Hero Session videos on YouTube and my videos come out grainy and pixely? Is there something I am missing here?

Should I try to use 30fps instead of 60FPS?

Between 30 and 60 fps, all your going to do is reduce motion blur for "action" type shots.

What resolution are you exporting in?

What are the lighting conditions? If it's low light, then the camera will choose a higher ISO which will reduce overall resolution and make video and images grainy looking.

Shooting mid day outside with the sun out in the woods, it just doesnt makes sense that once its on youtube it looks so bad compared to other youtubers?

How thick is the tree canopy in the woods. That's what I mean about reduced lighting conditions. Record a video in full sunlight out in the open and then one while in he woods and compare. Reducing the ISO should reduce the graininess.

Actually a better question is how does the video look BEFORE you upload to YouTube? How does it look on your monitor? It may be your upload settings for YouTube. Can you post a link of the uploaded video?

The video locally ( on my computer before upload ) looks AWESOME. My ISO is at 400 and the video after exporting it after ediitng it looks very crisp and clear, its just as soon as i upload it to youtube.

I just dont understand how some users have crisp videos with gopros on youtube and mine is blahhhh..

here is the video in question. The quality seems to be literally cut in HALF when uploaded.

Here is a paused pic of the video, it looks so grainy and just not clear at all.

Great video. It is definitely NOT a problem with your camera nor the video PRIOR to upload. I watched it and I think I figured out your issue. The default playback quality is 360p. You can change that to 1080p. Click on the "settings" icon (lower right next to YouTube) and select "quality." Then select the playback quality you desire (1080p) is the highest available.

When I did that, the play back was MUCH better. It will require more bandwidth though.

I tried that, maybe I am just expecting too much after seeing the quality before uploaded. Some of the official GoPro videos filmed with the Session looks sooooo goood.

This is from GOPRO official and they said it was all filmed with the Session and the quality blows mine out of the water!!
