Export from Final Cut Express as Quicktime. Skip iMovie and go directly to the youtube upload page. It'll be a very large file, but you won't get hit with further quality hits.

h.264 > Apple Intermediary Codec (FCE/iMovie compression) > iMovie (I don't know what's happening here) to youtube.

Yes, it'll be a long upload - and test it with 30sec-1 min of footage first (just so you can see the difference)

Best,
