For 2020 I'm starting to shoot everything in 4K and was planning to deliver in 2560x1440. (unless client requests otherwise obviously).
But I did a test upload and YouTube only makes it available as HD 1080p.
Is it only when uploading 4K a 2K (2560x1440) is available? Anyone know?

Vimeo shows the full res version (along with better quality) but unfortunately as it's a music video it needs to be on YouTube.

Cheers

Are you uploading using the FCP preset or but exporting the file first and using the YT uploader? I’d suggest the the latter to be sure. YT playa back what it think is the best for your network connection, so there may be a larger version but you may not be setting it.

Out of curiosity, why are you using his size? It's not a normal standard for delivery.

Been exporting then uploading. Maybe I'll try the built in uploader. Haven't used that in years. Can't even remember why I stopped using it haha.

Yeah, but the option of 2K never shows up in the alternatives. Does on other videos on YT so it's not my connection (which is plenty fast).

I just thought that it's a bit more than HD and still gives me a little room for reframing when shooting 4K. And it's the resolution of my monitor so I can see the final version pixel for pixel in full screen.

But if it's not posible to upload to YouTube in that size it's kinda pointless.

As a general rule even multiples scale the best. So you are probably better working HD, 2K DCI, UHD, or 4K DCI. I think to get YouTube 4K, you are going to need to upload 4K.

I tried uploading a 4K (well UHD) video as well, choosing 4K in FCPX when exporting/sharing to YouTube.
It still only becomes available as HD... weird!

I figured it out!

It looks like YouTube only shows above HD if your browser supports VP9 codec. So in Safari I only see up to HD but in Firefox I can see the 2K and 4K options...

Sometimes Youtube will make a 4K version available, sometimes it won't. It's weird. Often you have to give it several days (yes, DAYS) to process the resolutions above 1080p. I think 1080p is a priority and the other resolutions are done when system resources get around to it, if ever at all. HDR is processed right away though. They need to do a lot of work on that front as well as the tonemapping back to SDR is quite bad.

I also read it can take some time... But in this case it was just that I used Safari in which they never show up.
