Hey, @Katie M, I can't advise on that, but to get you better answers, please tell members what you are using to record and and how you are doing it, the video quality your device you are using to record, etc.

I am sure you will be asked these things.

Do they stay fuzzy, or just when they are first uploaded (processing on their end can make them fuzzy at first). Are you using the app or the website? I haven’t uploaded through the website in a while, but it used to have a quality  selection, don’t see that in the app, I think it just uploads best possible. Next think would be what are you camera settings?  (Settings, camera, record video settings). In there it lists low to high, with a check by the current selection.

I think one of your problems is that you are backlit. Either set up so you are facing the window or add a light in front of you. Under low light or poorly directed light, the camera in the phone can go into a more low resolution mode to compensate. Try doing that and load it to YouTube even if it is not "published" so you can see if it makes a difference, then delete when done.

Maybe even leave a front light off for the beginning of a recording and then turn it on while still recording. See if it improves.

Katie,

Go to your iPhone settings. Scroll down to the camera. 

In the camera, the second option is the Record Video. Select that. The default is 1080p HD at 30 fps. 

Change that to 1080p HD at 60 fps. I am assuming, you have not messed with defaults. That is what I have. When I did YouTube, the photos and videos were just fine, clear and not fuzzy. You do have to watch lighting, but the fuzzy is probably video quality, frames per second.

I am thinking it could be, in part, the quality of the video being uploaded?

i was gonna say something about the processing that goes on with youtube as @damfino said.  alot of times it takes a bit for it to finish.  

As @JohnG said lighting is one of the biggest things to help.  you can get some pretty drastic differences in quality just with that.  1080 at 24 or 30 frames should be good enough.   really think john hit on the main thing with lighting.  landscape orientation is easier to watch in my opinion.

something like this is an example.   or just a small desk lamp with shade off even.

Hi Katie,

Just watched your video and I have one more suggestion.

Turn your iPhone sideways so you're in landscape instead of straight up and down. We can hear the music and see your violin, but we can't see your pretty face.

Looking and sounding great!

When I play violin, it's really not as bad as it sounds!

Thank you grandpafiddle I’m so rubbish at recording ! I definitely need to make it better for those watching and when I look back  … trying to work on the quality and camera angle ! I’m going to get a stand ! So watch this space , you may see more than the ceiling and an occasional bow hand coming in !
