Do you edit? if so you can output as progressive
However are you sure that is the problem?

I have no idea.. I am asking what you guys think.. this is my first video camera...

Anyway... everything is fuzzy and when you move your arm in front of the screen for example it gets this weird looking thing on it.. like interlacing.. or something ... but I see nothing like that in other videos posted on youtube.

I was hoping someone may know what settings on the camera to use and maybe some software to sue to get a nice looking image.

this is a simple test

It looks a bit like compresion artifacts .
Are you using its highest settings?. Also is this direct to YT from Camera?
How does the footage look on your PC ( not uploaded)?.

I dont use the SD60, but I know they all have different quality levels , and the uploaded footage looks as if that might not be the maximum, unless YT is degrading it..
In order for any SD60 user to help, that is why I asked if the playback on PC is much better

There are bitrate setting on the SD60 from what I can remember. The higher the better.

If that clip is being lit entirely by the light from your monitor then the quality isn't bad. The more light you have the better your camera will perform.

I use aSD60 for all my filming,there are settings you can change to get the highest bitrate.
If you are filming with the highest bitrate setting,then it is probably cos your filming in low-light.the sd60 is not great for low-light filming.
Try some filming outdoors,its great for that.
