You probably don't need to use Prores 422 HQ for web delivery, but that itself won't be the issue. When I upload to YouTube I use an exported file of Prores 422 and I encode the full size using 6000 bit-rate for 720p videos and 8000 to 10000 bit-rate for 1080p videos. Youtube requires pretty high bit-rates to provide decent quality videos after their compression process.

I use either Quicktime 7 or Compressor to setup the encode specs. Be advised, the higher the bit-rate, the better quality you'll see, but also the more demanding the video will be of high speed internet and computer processing power for viewers to watch online. Youtube does automatically provide the multiple playback options for mobile, tablets, PC's etc and auto senses ones internet speed to deliver a default quality a viewer can successfully handle, but if you force the HD playback on slow connections it stutters and needs to re-buffer.

UPDATE: To address your DVD issue, what type of DVD (Blu-Ray or SD) and what application are you using to create the DVD?

First let's address the DVD issue. You can create a DVD directly in FCPX. It will be a single pass encode and you will not have the ability to add menus but you can choose a background and select whether to make the movie play upon insertion into a DVD player or bring up the main background menu and wait for someone to hit PLAY. If this quality is OK with you, simply select your project in the timeline and hit the share icon to bring up sharing options. Select DVD and when those menu options opens up, select the basic options it offers, insert a DVD and FCPX will encode and burn all in one process. When the drive ejects your DVD will be ready to play and you'll have the option to burn another copy if you wish.

If you want more sophisticated control of creating menus, buttons, etc. you will need to use a program such as Adobe Encore, DVD Studio Pro or the like. DVD Studio Pro will run under Mavericks but you'll need to have purchased it with a prior legacy version of FCP. If you ever bough FCP Studio 3, the DVD's that came with it will provide an Intel installer that you can use to install it on Mavericks. If you have FCP Studio 2, the DVD Studio Pro application came as a universal binary program, yet the installer was not for Intel Mac's. In this case you would need the program "Pacifist" to get DVD Studio Pro onto your Mac. If you choose Adobe Encore, it is only available through Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription.

You can also use Compressor to create the DVD outside of FCPX, but first you must generate a Master file within FCPX. In your project, once again choose the SHARE icon and from the menu that opens, choose MASTER FILE. You can change from Prores 422 HQ to standard Prores 422, or leave it as is and you can choose where to save that file. The file size will display as you choose different formats so you have an idea of what the resulting size is going to be.

Once the MASTER FILE is created, close FCPX and open Compressor. From the startup menu in Compressor,
(I assume since you are on 10.0.9 of FCPX, you are still using the older version of Compressor) choose "Create Disc" and you can burn the DVD similar to within FCPX, only you'll have the ability to change the encoding parameters. If you click on the tabs in the inspector once you Master File is loaded, you can change to Two Pass VBR Best encoding, and or other options. The "Create Disc" function will encode to DVD and burn the disc all in one process when you submit the batch.

Now for the YouTube information.

You can SHARE from FCPX directly to YOUTUBE and it will take your project and encode with the standard recommended settings for YOUTUBE. Choose the SHARE icon just as in the above examples for a DVD or MASTER FILE creation.

The specs you ask for on the YOUTUBE video encoding is something that many of us would do different ways. For me, I would encode and upload a 720p video with the following parameters:

File Format: H.264
Container: MOV Quicktime
Frame Size: 1280 x 720
FPS = original FPS of the edited video (usually 23.98, 29.97 or 30 but possibly 59.94 if shooting 60p)
Bit-Rate (data rate): 5000 Mbps or 6000 Mbps
AUDIO : 16 bit 48000 HZ or 44100 HZ 128 bit
Set keyframes either to automatic (if you have the option) or to EVERY 24, 29, etc. based on FPS)
Set "Prepare for Streaming" if you have the option.

Depending on what you use to encode, some of these settings may be done automatically for you, or not at all.

Hope this helps.
