I've searched and searched but Ive yet to find anything that tells me how to tweak after effects to output 1080p video under YouTube's size limit. If I use the render queue my 1 minute video comes out 9GB. What do I for max youtube quality but correct filesize?!

Render uncompressed out of AE (you may be able to use the file you already rendered). Then use Adobe Media Encoder to compress using a f4v/flv OR a H264 preset. Choosing a 2pass variable bit rate will give you better results.
You could also open the AE project in Encoder, choose the comp you need rendered, and then render out of Encoder to the preset of your choice.

As above, or it depends - are you wanting to invest in good software for encoding? If so, what platform are you on? If on Mac, I'd recommend either Episode (http://www.telestream.net) or Compressor that comes with Final Cut Studio. The obvious answer is that you need to compress the video prior to uploading.

I'm on a Mac, I already have compressor but it's not working how I want it. What settings do I choose? It renders video that stops playing after a few frames and its the most frustrating thing in the world right now :/

Also what settings/filesize do I compress the video to?! i cant see myself uploading a gig through youtube?

youtube has a lot of good info for getting good quality for their setup. here's some basic info for frame size and bit rates (and other stuff):

http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/static.py?hl=en&topic=1728588&guide=1...

and there are plenty of links to more info there too.

another note for encoding to codecs like h.264, make sure that multi-pass (or 2-pass) encoding is selected. this will provide more efficient encoding and thus better image quality per given data rate than single-pass.

I second everyone's responses. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but I've never been able to get very good h264 transcodings from Adobe Media Converter. I've been very impressed with Quicktime Pro 7's h264s though. This would be a cheap option if you don't have Compressor.

I'm not entirely clear on how Youtube works, but I would give them h264 MOVs and let them do the only FLV conversion. I think they use a data rate of about 800 or 1000/kbs and it would be a shame to have your file go through 2 FLV transcodings (one by you and one by them). Someone let me know if I'm off base with these assumptions.

Best regards,

Kevin Camin
