I’ve searched long and hard on the internet for what seems to be a highly guarded secret on the audio quality of YouTube HD music videos and I found very little information if any so........ While streaming music videos in HD 720p or greater I found the audio quality to be one of the better sounding HD audio providers compared to most paid audio only streaming services. YouTube recommends uploading 24bit~48kHz FLAC or linear PCM for music videos. I have an kHz indicator on my receiver and it’s indicating YouTube is streaming at 48kHz-24bit AAC ,FLAC or PCM of which I’m not sure but sounds very very good. We debate about Qobuz FLAC vs Tidal MQA vs Spotify MP3 vs HDtracks FLAC etc, and as another AK member@DaveVoorhis pointed out,”The real elephant in the room is YouTube.” What are your thoughts of YouTube audio quality what type of threat they may be to other paid streaming services?
