Default YouTube uploads look horrible

I uploaded directly to YouTube from my S5, and it looks awful. In gallery, it looks great. I recorded it in 1080P. I made sure HD was on in YouTube, and I searched the settings high and low for a quality setting, but nothing. What gives??

How horrible? It won't look as good as on your phone because YouTube compresses everything and is limited to 30 fps

There's definitely a big difference. I played it back on my phone and TV and it's not nearly as good as the original quality

Idk about other places but I do believe you have to wait for HD when uploading to youtube. Since they process every video so it can play in 240p all the way up to whatever resolution you upload at.
