Youtube videos appears Darker than Orginal unless played in HD 1080p
Hello! I am writing this post to see if anyone can help me on this. I just need your opinion and if possible, an explanation to the following:
the issue: YOUTUBE VIDEOS ARE DARKER THAN THE ORIGINALS
tTo do color grading has these things . A dude gets more picky with what one sees. And after hearing some comments about a video i published on youtbe, like : " - This video is too dark," I noticed that a video I posted on youtube is indeed darker when it plays in any other mode rather than HD 1080p high definition . Not sure if this is only happening to me but in fact there is considerable loss of light intensity on the video . I am sending in attachment three print screens from the last video I posted on youtube. Please note that I am using chrome browser. one is with the video playing at the higgest quality 1080p HD Other is a print screen of the same video but I selected lower quality to play the video 720p or 480p.
Here is the result :
You can easily do the test with other videos . Just use the following url :
and replace the following parameters: "vq=HD1080" replace by vq=hd720p , vq=hd480p, vq=medium or vq=small
replace "lg9eTSEAbNA" by the ID of the video you want to see/play .
I would appreciate if you tell me it 's the same with you . Thank you !
