What dimensions did you record and produce your video at? Also, did you try changing the quality settings to a higher setting on YouTube when watching the video? Let us know as the more information you provide the better it is for getting help. Maybe a link to the YouTube Video if possible so we can see what you are talking about. Thanks for posting and have a great day.

Unfortunately, it is all due to scaling. YouTube will scale your videos (down only) and that causes blurriness, especially with text. Here is a PDF I made a while back with more information:

This is one reason why some prefer to host on, where the video will be displayed in the original resolution.

Hope this helps,
