I'm new to FCPX and Compressor 4.  My HD video looks terrible when uploaded to YouTube and are no longer 720 or 1080p HD.  Are there codes or a secret handshake to have my HD video remain HD on youtube.  All help appreciated.

I have been editing in FCP X 10.0.6 and have had success with that on my Mac Book Pro Retina.  But when I go to compress the 1 minute video detined for YouTube inputing that I wish for it to remain in HD (720 and or 1080p) via Compressor 4, the video compresses and I upload it to youtube via their uploader and when the video is played back it looks aweful.  Needless to say it is no longer HD and very blurry.  Is there any help you can give me with step by step codes to follow to ensure my 1 minute video is viewable in HD? I sure would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
