So i have been uploading to YouTube for a long time, I've always noticed a slight difference in the brightness/contrast between the video preview on Sony Vegas and how it looks once uploaded to YouTube.
I shot my latest video with a high white balance to achieve a specific look, and while its completely watchable both on the camera and once imported into Vegas, once i uploaded it to YouTube, the video is ruined, with all detail being lost in burnt out highlights . I have noticed that the difference is also noticeable between VLC media player and Windows media player.
Here is a screen shot, it shows the same unedited MOV file, being played by both VLC and Windows media player.
A is how my video looks on my camera itself, VLC and Sony Vegas.
B is how the video looks on windows media player, and on YouTube.
As you can see B has completely burnt out highlights.
This is obviously a big problem as what I'm using to edit and view footage shows a completely different image to how it will be displayed on YouTube.
Any advice about this would be appreciated, thanks.
I use vegas 10, and use a Rebel t3i, shooting in 1080p 24fps pal.
