I'm thinking the corruption could be due to low upload bandwidth, maybe? Looking at your videos, 1080p60 is already an option and shouldn't be corrupt.

Of note, MP4 fails if OBS does not encode correctly or suddenly corrupts the video. Any reason why you're using MP4? With MKV, the file is accessible for the most part, like at least > 90% of intended recorded content, should the recording get interrupted in event of a sudden system down. I used to rely on MP4 until I lost complete a great OBS PosChengband recording a few years ago. Once I switched from MP4 to MKV, I never looked back. Maybe try recording only as MKV and check for first upload attempts on YouTube for any differences. Maybe, you'll get better results with MKV.

On my 2014 laptop rig, my most recent OBS settings are:
Video FPS: 48 FPS
Output resolution: 1920x1080
Recording format: MKV
Encoder: x264
Rate control: CRF
CRF (setting): 23
CPU Usage Preset: superfast
Profile: (none)
Tune: (none)
Audio bitrate: 160
Audio sample rate: 48 KHz
Channels: Stereo

It is through these settings I get the best balance between quality vs. size of the MKV video file, because of the 2014 hardware.

My 2014 laptop is a Toshiba Satellite P55W-B5220 model with a base 1.7 GHz 4th gen dual core i5, 16GB RAM, Intel HD 4400 integrated GPU, and 240GB SATA SSD. I have a much newer 2020 CLEVO laptop with much more powerful specs normally recording at 90 FPS, which I've put away because I'm a break from it
My best try at PosChengband 7.0.0's nightmare-mode on

If I'm offline I'm probably in the middle of maintaining Gentoo or something-Linux or other.
