“Who can help me? I made a video clip from the last ten years’ movies of Marvel. I met a problem when I uploaded the video to YouTube. My original video is 4K, but after uploading to YouTube, the video clarity is reduced. How to upload 4K video to YouTube without quality loss?”
With the maturity of 4K technology, it is widely used in many videos. 4K video has the following advantages: more detailed picture, higher image definition quality and larger projection surface visibility. Many of the films released in this year are 4K films; the upcoming films like Reign of Superman, and The Hate U Give are also 4K films. Like Audrey and other movie lovers, I also like to edit videos and share them to YouTube. Before uploading a video to YouTube, it's crucial to understand YouTube's rules. Otherwise, you may be obstructed by the unsuccessful uploading, just like Audrey. So, how do we upload the 4K videos?
Before uploading 4K video to YouTube, we need to solve three basic problems:
1. We need to cut a video shorter than 15 minutes from the 4K file, since YouTube requires no more than 15 minutes of video to be uploaded.
2. One thing that some people may miss is that the video format should be compatible with YouTube. The right uploading video formats are MOV, MPEG4, MPEGPS, AVI, FLV, 3GPP, WMV and WebM..
3. The frames per second of the uploading video are no more than 60. And the bit rate is no more than 45. So you need to adjust the video bit rate and frame rate of the 4K video before putting in the YouTube.
After you understand the above requirements, you will also guess why it is wrong to upload videos to YouTube.
