YouTube compresses all videos that get uploaded, that’s what the “processing” part of the upload is doing. I don’t believe YouTube has made public what compression settings they use
Because of this compression, videos will often look worse on YouTube than the original video. Some people purposely upload in a higher resolution such as 4K so that the compression isn’t as bad at 1080p than if they were to upload a 1080p file.
Depending on what editing software you use, it may have some advanced compression settings you can tinker with to achieve a smaller file size without losing too much quality. If not then you could check out something like Handbrake which can be quite good
