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.?
Re: poor graphics quality on MP4 video when uploaded to...
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It should be capable of displaying any standard format (*.avi, *.mpg, *.mov, *.Mp4, h.264), etc except something like the new 4K Ultra High Definition which could still probably be displayed but the quality would be lost.
1920x1080 resolution is the starting point for HD video. If you have set your desktop resolution to that or anything avove then you should be running at HD resolutions. Maybe the image/video you are watching is not at a HD resolution, therefore it will appear distorted and streched (poor quality). To fully experience HD playback use video files and imaged that are at the 1920x1080 resolution and above.
a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.
so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly
you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you
if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store
My pc has 2 places to connect a monitor, due to the fact that it has an integrated generic quality video card (which didn't quite excite me enough), so I installed a higher quality graphics card. So, make sure that you have connected correctly.
Also, there should be an INPUT MODE selection somewhere on the monitor itself. Mine has a series of buttons on the lower right side, one of these is INPUT.
On a side note, you may need to download drivers for it; I have located the manual and drivers for this item here:
Really there is no way to check a video card for problems unless 1.) You have another PC that will support the same connections (PCI-E, PCI, AGP, etc) as the video card you have. 2.) The display still works to where you can run some software that will test the card for problems.
According to HP's website, I looked up your PC, you may have a graphics card installed in the PCI-Express X16 slot. If so, and your motherboard still has the Intel graphics built in, you can remove your video card.
You stated that your motherboard has another video port and you tried using it but no go. This is because HP has stated that if you have a card installed as well as on-board graphics (this means there are two video ports on the back of PC not including HDMI) then they can not work at the same time. So, try removing the graphics card installed in the expansion slot and use the one attached or built on to the motherboard.
Still, if all else fails and that does not work, graphics cards can be replaced with your type from $80-$400 dollars. Just depends if you want a mfr. replacement or boosted performance!
If you do get the built-in graphics to work, then your know it was your video card most likely. They are known to go out quite easily in some cases. PCs and PC components are rated to last a certain amount of hours before that fail, sometimes you surpass this time greatly and sometimes they fail short of this. It happens, I have gone through at least 3 graphics cards in the past 4 years because I am cosntantly puching them to max hahaha!!!
Hope that helps and happy computing. Let me know if you have any further questions.
First test and see if it is the video card in the machine by plugging up another monitor. If the test monitor works fine then take it back for warranty. The problem is usually caused by poor quality electrolytic capacitors which are responsible for filtering and waveform shaping. These components normaly only fail after atleast a year unless they are subject to extreme heat. I would be getting a replacement ASAP!
Initially, try the lowest possible Screen Resolution in the PC's Display Properties. You could also try lowering the Screen refresh Rates. This is especially so if the PC connects to the TV using composite (yellow) video out or S-Video. In some video cards/settings, it may be necessary to enable twin/dual view in the display properties.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy New Year.
Have you tried updating your graphics card? Go to ATI's website and try updating your video card and hopefully that solves your problem. Go to amd.com and go to ATI tab to update your driver. I forgot ATI is under AMD's umbrella
