Poor graphics quality on MP4 video when uploaded to Utube

Hello & happy new year!
I create my videos on a mac using IMovie and export them as MP4 to be uploaded onto UTube.  When I use only still frame jpg images , the quality of the jpg declines after I export into MP4. The pixels fragment almost seeming to move around and blur even when the jpgs are of a high enough resolution such as 300 dpi.  Then when I upload to UTube the jpg images get worse in quality.
Any suggestions for improving the jpg graphics quality when they are a part of a MP4 video playing on UTube.?

Thanks Truly Serpentine

Unfortunately youtube has the nasty habit of compressing images, as well as MP4. Depending on the program you are using you might be able to increase the quality of the MP4 when you save it (MP4 compresses video into a smaller size by sacrificing pixel quality). However youtube does the same thing. The shorter (and smaller filesize) a video is, usually the less it gets compressed.

Try using DivX and save as an AVI if you have that option available. The better quality the video file the better a chance you'll have at uploading it to youtube.

Can't upload videos to Imovie


Kodak series cameras capture videos in MOV files. iMovie will only import codecs that it can edit. iMovie can import MP4, DV, Apple Intermediate Codec, H.264, Photo JPEG, Motion JPEG, Apple Animation, and perhaps others. MOV is a multimedia container file, not a codec. It can contain any of the above codecs, but it could contain other codecs that are not editable by iMovie, such as MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 so that sometimes iMovie cannot recognize Kodak videos directly.
please try this video converter, good luck. kodak video to imovie

Imac and downloading video


Though I am not familiar with this camcorder, it probably creates an MPEG4 file. To get it into iMovie (depending on your version of iMovie) you may have to convert it to something that iMovie can understand. Try opening the file with a free program called MPEG Streamclip (www.squared5.com). If it is recognized, export it to either Quicktime or DV. IMovie should be able to open one of those.
