Default Youtube video problems.

Hey everyone,

I'm new to this forum. I've been playing drums for about 12 years now, mostly freelance, but now i've finally found a band that i'd like to play with on a regular basis. My question pertains to Youtube videos. I've been trying to record one of our songs on video to post on Youtube, but the sound quality is horrible. I used a regular sony Digicamcorder to record the song but it could be a lot better (i didn't mike the drums, but they're still too loud). I just want to know if anyone has experienced similar problems while recording live videos? and if anyone could provide me tips on how to work around the situation (I have pretty limited resources, so i don't think i can afford a new professional camcorder). Should i mike the drums and feed them through a processor and mix them later?

Thanks in advance!
