YouTube compression

This is a commercial I directed for CD Warehouse. It was edited with premiere and it seems to lose something when it is uploaded on youtube. While I understand that Youtube compresses everything. Is there a compression scheme that will help it looks better. I look at movie trailers on youtube from time to time and some of them seem picture perfect. I basically want it to look better if someone were to take it to a biiger size.

Can you point out a trailer that looks "picture perfect?" Because I've never really seen anything on Youtube that looks that good. The only stuff that looks a little better than the average stuff is the stuff that was originally HD, but it still looks compressed.

The best "legal" way is to create your own FLV1 flash video clip that conforms to YouTube's standards. If you don't do that YouTube will re-compress it, which takes all quality control out of your hands.

Here are the limits I can think of:
