so before this i use a 4:3 monitor and use 1280x720 resolution with ease. but now im changing monitor to a 16:9 ratio. the max res is 1366x768. my question is, can i upload a 1366x768 video on youtube or do i need to export it as 720p or 1080p? thanks! :D

You can upload in whatever resolution you like. Higher is always better. Even if it's larger than your monitors resolution.

You can't take a 1366x768 recording and upscale it to 1080p, that will just look nasty. but taking a 1920x1080 image and downscaling it to 1366x768 is much better at keeping a crisp and sharp image.

It's like when you save an image is MS Paint, if you make the image way bigger you'll get a very pixelated image, but if you instead shrink the image you will be able to maintain most of the image quality.


Hope that helps.
TL;DR upscale = bad. downscale = good.

Export in 720p. It will take less space and I think you could upload 768p video, but larger file and I think youtube would downscale it.

You might find that you get the best results by recording in max resolution and uploading without any scaling applied. if you have to do scaling, going down is the next best method.

I'm glad you were able to make sense of my ramblings.

I'm not really sure, I'm going to say yes.

I've never actually uploaded in your resolution before, perhaps you should upload a small test clip. and see what happens.
