Ubuntu – Uploading video to youtube in right format


I have a Sony CX115 and I have a little footage I'd like to put on youtube.
I've downloaded Arista from the Ubuntu Software Center and then I've downloaded its Youtube HD plugin.
I've converted my video and uploaded it to youtube…
The result is a flashy video with a lot of grey in it:


What could I do to publish it in high quality so it'll be viewable?
