Ive just noticed something on Pond 5 when I search for my own videos. In many of my clips that have blue skies, I'm seeing heavy pixelation in the previews (when I hover the cursor over the video.) The blue sky is transformed into a series of blocks more or less. Same for underwater footage. Though when I click on the video and let it play within it's own page, it looks sort of decent. I first started noticing this issue with my GoPro videos and thought it was exclusive to them. I then searched for clips shot with my Panasonic G6 (which takes better quality video than the GoPro) and was surprised to see the same issue with them. Though oddly, other contributors' videos in search results look fine (even ones with blue skies.)

Just trying to work out why I'm getting this heavy pixelation with my clips on the Pond 5 previews. The same versions of the clips look fine on my monitor. I admit I am using the h264 codec but I wouldn't think it would produce that extreme of a problem.

The bitrates of my cameras are not super high but when I export a h264 video from them for stock, I try and get the bitrate as close as possible to the original.
