I really wish we had known a year ago that YouTube saves the raw, uploaded video and re-encodes as needed. We used to do our best to compress the video so it looked best when streamed at 640x360.

There wasn't even a low-quality/high-quality option then.
Now we just compress to make the file size a bit smaller for our own storage.

I am glad, though, that the call was made to go 16x9 before I came onboard and that's been consistent since day one.
