The website you upload the video to will adjust settings for bandwidth purposes. If you watch the vid on your computer you'll notice it looks better.

I had my GoPro set to 720p at 30 frames(R3 on the camera) and the video came out good. 960p (R4 i think) made my stuff grainy and a little jumpy, same with 720p at 60 frames (R2), just a wider angle. Next round of TMGP I'm gonna try 1080p. Those vids come out really nice but the files are huge!!

Ill see if I can post up one of mine.

Whenever I publish my videos to my computer, it will ask me the quality that I want to use as a last option before I select "publish" or "ok". 360, 480, 720HD or 1080HD. Depending on the size and length of the video I will either select 720 or 1080. Keep your videos to 10 minutes in length, or less and youtube will take them. At least this has been my experience. I don't change any settings on the camera. At least I havent yet. I use a macbook pro and imovie.

Even after doing this though, when you view them with youtube, it automatically defaults to like 360...you have to select to watch them in HD. There is an option on the embedded youtube player.

I am not familiar with vimeo though.

thanks brandt

Im no high roller so no mac for me... Im using Windows Movie Maker and since it doesnt reconize the MP4 format that the goprp records to I have to convert the file. So Im probably losing some quality there but it still looked before I uploaded it.

vimeo didnt ask me anything about resolution when I uploaded it, I will try to upload it to youtube after work and see what happens.
