    Well, it's ok...but it doesn't look that good. It looks good on the ipod but in 720 on youtube its nothing close to good...anyone else disappointed?

    I know youtube decreases quality...so where else should I upload?

    I think Vimeo is supposed to be better quality. Viddler might be another one to look at.

    it looks good on the ipod because it's on a smaller screen...when imported on a computer or youtube it looks worst

    and the video quality when uploading to youtube and importing to computer looks exactly the same so don't bother looking for other places to upload because it'll look the same

    It look worse on YouTube because of all the noise in the iPod camera, and YouTube H.264 compression deblocks it.

    I really don't understand complaining about it. If you're looking for a high quality video camera ... then purchase a high quality video camera?

    An iPod Touch.

    You guys misunderstood, I'm not purposely complaining. I like it a lot. The video is a lot better than my phone (I think, never uploaded it from there). But the quality of this HD is less than what I was expecting. I understand is 720p, but I've seen other things record in 720 with far greater picture according to youtube. I'm gonna try vimeo later though

    again...if you want an amazing HD video, get a dedicated video camera

    He's right. 720p doesn't mean it'll look like a dedicated video camera. This has nothing to do with Youtube or Vimeo, it's just the way videorecording works. These little lenses and sensors of the Ipod Touch just can't get the same contrast/saturation/sharpness a dedicated videocamera can give you.

    You can compare it to photography, 10 megapixels are just the resolution, there are other important aspects to the pictures.

    Doesn't youtube heavily compress their videos? Even the "HD" ones?

    How about your computer?

    You realize you don't have to upload videos to youtube to watch them, right?
