Youtube is a horrible mangler of video. It is so bad that I can't even use it. That is why I post on Vimeo. There are no quality controls, that I can find on Youtube, to control the conversion process.

Everything that encodes your stuff is usually pretty horrible. Be it facebook/youtube/vimeo/shotgun, it's all incredibly useless. Kinda strange in my opinion since it's all about showing videos and stuff - but yeah I guess they're concerned about storage and playback first and foremost and not quality.
