    So I was messing around with iMovie and was bored so I got out my vado HD™ mini cam and mounted it on a bi-pod and was filming my dog.
    It originally records at 720p but after exporting it with iMovie using the quicktime feature and setting the res. to 1920/1080 HD , after it uploaded to Youtube it was in 1080p!!
    But does this mean it upconverted from 720p to 1080p or did it do nothing?

    Here's a link to the video but make sure you scroll up to 1080p before you watch it......And the camera only cost 130 $ :rolleyes:

    Wait, I'm slightly confused here.

    First, you say you exported out of iMovie at 1920x1080, which would indicate that you already upscaled video from 720p before you even uploaded it YouTube. So, uploading the video to YouTube, it would detect that the video is already in a 1920x1080 frame size and would enable the "1080p" view mode.

    Unless you're saying the video was exported as 720p (1280x720) and then uploaded to YouTube. If that's the case, YouTube did the upscaling for you for the 1080p mode.

    In either case, it doesn't look bad, though the scaling is noticeable when viewing in 1080p.

    do you rly want to know?
    no, nothing was upscaled. you put information that wasn't there in to the 1080 picture. you should have exported as 720p. would have probably looked a bit better too. All that happened was that the size of each frame was effective blown up to fill 1080 pixels.
