How to post audio+ picture on youtube without losing sound quality?

Hello everyone,

I am trying to create a video for a song of mine in order to release it on youtube.

The idea is just to stick a pic to the audio so that youtube recognizes the format.

I am using shotcut and while the making of this pic+sound video file was quite easy I noticed that the sound is altered ( bass becomes blurry, loss of depth..)even before being posted on yt.

Is there a way to create a HD sound+picture file that won't lose in sound quality before it's handled by youtube's eq?

Many thanks in advance
Peace

Quality of audio on an video wil depend on video quality to.
But don't forget that YT alters (normalization) your audio too.
Keep enough dynamic and headroom.

Yea, its done all the time. Just have it professionally produced/mastered for YouTube. Quality in will equal quality out all day long

If its sounds bad before you even insert it in YouTube, then it will never sound good in Youtube. You have to get it to sound right before uploading it to YT.
This starts in the music writing/arrangement stage, then carries over to the recording stage and carries over to the mixing stage and then caries over to the mastering stage

It would help if you could tell people what settings you're using when creating the final video file. (as well as what you start off with)
