    YouTube uses their own compressions schemes that often affect the quality. Also remember, the higher resolutions don't appear right away.

    What he said; the online programs will stomp on your upload.

    I was reading that YouTube takes the uploaded video and creates several different resolutions so every viewer, no matter their internet speed, can watch without interruption or buffering. The lower resolutions are available sooner than the higher ones. They also recode the videos to better match their servers.

    Try uploading to Vimeo and see if there is a difference. Those videos seem to look better to me over YouTube.
