    McDowell Sports Loop, Arizona Shot with GoPro Hero 3 Black on Chest Mount
    Just a ride I did out at McDowell a couple weeks ago. I wish Youtube didn't take the quality down so much, it looks crystal clear on my computer. Does anybody know how to keep the quality sharp after uploading to Youtube?

    The video you created likely has a bit rate around 20, but most hosting sites reduce this to 5 or less--really messes with the quality. Not sure about youtube--I use vimeo and pay the price (about 300/year I think) to be able to have a higher quality video. I have looked at many hosting sites and really no one seems to support higher than 5MB bit rate---and that is usually because the bandwidth required to receive that bit rate is large---to give you a different perspective---I press a video at 20MB and it is 680megs in size--upload to vimeo, reduced to 5MB (bit rate) and video file is 200Megs---yep, lower quality. If anyone knows of a hosting site that will support 10MB bit rate delivery or greater let us know.
