Question

Does anyone know what is the best video rendering option to use in VideoWave 11 for uploading to YouTube to get the "Watch in High Quality" option?

 

I know there are several render options that you can use to get YouTube to play your video in High Quality. I have done very limited experimenting and have found that YouTube has taken some of my videos that I did using Windows Media Video at 768x432 and they are now able to be viewed in High Quality. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

 

I'm a little confused on the bit rate too. They all seem to vary quite a "bit" (no pun intended). How is the bit rate determined?

 

Btw... how many freaking Windows Media Video options do we really need? VideoWave 11 has so many different ones available - how do you know which one to use?

I believe the requirement for 'high quality' on YouTube is 640X480 or higher. Now if the resolution is higher, I'm not sure exactly what YouTube will do with it. For hidef online, I use www.vimeo.com.

 

YouTube also converts everything to Flash video (FLV), but converting to FLV before uploading doesn't seem to make any difference. However, I have found that using MP4 converts to FLV much better than WMV - at least for the few videos that I have uploaded. I did a few tests uploading different files types.

 

Bitrate will affect two things: files size and time limit. Some websites may limit uploads to a file size. I've seen a few limit the time. So you would need to select a bitrate appropriate for the site and limitations.

Interesting. Thank you. Please forgive my ignorance. That's why I'm here - to learn.

 

Actually, I thought it was 480x360 for 'high quality' on YouTube? No biggie. YouTube now allows you to upload up to a 10 minute video at up to 1 GB file size. But who wants to upload a file that big? It would take all night.

 

I was just wondering what others were doing to render the highest video quality possible (for YouTube 'high quality') while at the same time keeping the file size as small as possible.

Here is what YouTube help states for high quality:

* MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format

* MP3 audio

* Video resolution: 480x360 or higher

* Frame Rate: 24fps or higher

 

So as long as you follow those guidelines, you should be ok. Since you have hidef camcorder, may want to check out www.vimeo.com. You can upload 720p files there. Granted the files are larger, too. Here is a short video I uploaded there. It was output using Videowave 11 AVCHD template.
