YouTube Video Comparison via Direct File or YouTube Upload Button

I uploaded a video twice that I shot on my iphone 3G S. I thought I would do a comparison of the quality sent to youtube via the youtube upload button and taken directly off the iphone and uploaded to youtube from my PC.

Video Sent from iphone via youtube button
iphone recompresses video with lower bitrate and resamples to 480x360 resulting in a 3.5mb file
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8w4MpVCWPf0

Video taken from the iphone via "Scanner and Cameras" on PC
Video size is 640x480 and file size is 64.7mb
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ttfb29SXECM

Once it ends up on youtube, the quality is pretty much the same even though the 640x480 version displays the HQ button. There is a small problem with jaggies though when using the 640x480 version so maybe using the YouTube upload button on the iphone might be better is some cases.

If you compare the video at 1:37 when it is changing adjusting the exposure it does not have as many artifacts in the compression in the larger file.

When playing back on your computer, the 640x480 file is much better of course and the file size is almost 20x as large.

Do YouTube videos look better, too? Like, while on the road?

Because when I'm riding shotgun with my buddies and I decide to fire up YouTube, I hate the ungodly blocky look of it. It looks VERY good, however, with WiFi on.

I did find when you trim it doesnt rename the file. Kind of sucks when you try to import your video.

that looks suprisingly good.

still curious how youtube is going to handle videos shoot at that aspect, though i'm sure most people will flip the camera on its side to take advantage of the widescreen shooting.

nice car too!
