    I made a video using VideoPad because Windows Movie Maker kept locking up on me. When I saved it, I saved the video as .avi as well as .mov in Youtube HQ resolution.

    Although the images are clean and look clean in the software, they are a tad blurry after I uploaded them to YT.

    Any idea what the heck I could be doing wrong?

    Assuming YT has finished processing, they do compress the video a bit. My best results have been with using the H.264 codec.

    there'n not much you can do because of the compression of the video. Sometimes you have to live with it. Bandwidth and space costs money for YT

    Thanks to both of you... I'm not Johny Video by any means so I'm well behind the learning curve there. I'll live with the quality and I also wrote out the video on my blog with images that are in the video... a huge pain but life isn't all peaches and cream.

    What browser shows your vids blurry?

    I have one PC here with IE7 and the latest FF.
    In IE the vids look blurry, in FF they are a lot sharper.

    I viewed it using FF. I didn't even look using Explorer or Crome.
