Where is the reduction in color quality coming from when my animations are played back from certain sources such as youtube and vlc media player?
I have seen videos on youtube where black is actually black, not dark grey, and the colors look clear and deep. So if its not a problem with youtube’s codec then what am I doing wrong?
The top image is a screen shot from windows media player, which exactly resembles the original frames, and the bottom is from youtube which looks hazy and less saturated. But they are from the same video.
If anyone can provide help or at least an explanation for this It is appreciated. Hopefully this is the right place for this thread.
