YouTube Lossless by Mygoshi at 2:40 PM EST on January 13, 2017
I'm wondering how to upload lossless audio to youtube. In 2014/2015, HQ music that I was uploading to youtube didn't have a very "degraded quality", but since July 2016, HQ music seems to be 128 kbps but I upload the videos at 720p. How to keep high quality? (like in ffmpeg or other things)

because I don't know how SilvaGunner keep such high quality : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y_D6koUbWI

"HQ" will be either 128kbps AAC or Opus, regardless of what you upload.

The "High Quality" version you linked to is Opus 128kbps, which in itself is a very high quality rip, since Opus is pretty good even at 96kbps, while at 128kbps, it should be pretty much transparent to most people.

E: Incidentally, this is the spoof channel, "SiIvaGunner". The original SilvaGunner was copyright banned a long time ago. SiIvaGunner, that is, with a capital i instead of a lower case L, has been uploading fakeout and original music mixes for comedic value for years now, and not getting banned because they don't violate the actual copyrights they claim to with their song titles.

Nice Hotline Bling remix of the shop channel, by the way. Especially that it gets finished with The Flintstones theme.

I know that audio quality depend on video quality on youtube, but when you say it's Opus 128kbps, how do you know? And how to upload Opus to youtube? With video codec that supports opus? I'm using MP3 384 Stereo (no joint stereo), 48kHz since a lot of time now, and I don't know why, but a day I noticed that youtube degraded a lot more the quality

For example I used exact settings for this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0WSReU0tUg
and the quality is pretty the same as my files.
(it is originally XMA 48kHz)

And look at this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiou6g9M9NU

I used the exact settings and the quality is bad compared to the previous video, and the image looks a little big different. Don't know what's happening.

And why aren't you uploading the original XMA files for the JoshW.info archive? That's another option.

If anything, upload the XMA of that track so I can check it, please.

The encoding pipeline that content goes through on YouTube is based on the video height. There are effectively three pipelines: height under 720px (SD), height between 720px and 1079px (classic HD), and 1080px+ (modern HD).

And the clip he posted above already hit the maximum audio quality pipeline for YouTube. I'm waiting for the original audio clip for comparison. In its original format, so I may also check the bitrate/quality of the original.

This is only tangentially related, but since we're talking about different audio codecs at certain bitrates: how good would you say a ~100kbps Ogg Vorbis file is in comparison to an AAC/Opus/MP3 of the same bitrate? Is there a good way of knowing this without listening (I don't have the best headphones, so after a certain point I can't really hear minute imperfections).

I only asked for the original because it is likely a 48kbps WMA file, which is crap by all accounts, but probably the best that is available, considering the PSP files decode completely broken with the current version of VGMStream.

Oh look, another person who's been tricked by a fake YouTuber who posts crappy remixes of The Flinstones, and makes weird remixes that he calls "High Quality Rips".

They aren't actually "rips" in "high quality". The term "High Quality Rips" is used by him, and immature fans of him, to refer to his remixes, where the original tunes are referred to as "Low Quality Rips".

I should have known it was something dumb like that.
