I'm working on a project where I will be required to upload a commercial onto TV server.
It's my first time doing it and I want to make sure I do it right as TV charges me evertime I'm uploading a file.
Look at the Container & Codec entries. If you follow those, your video will be good.
I can't comment on the audio levels; they just say "standard", but I bet you can look them up.
Yes -- a 30-second spot should be 30 seconds precisely... which in your case begins at the FIRST frame, which is 00:00 and ends at 29:24.
If this is interlaced video, get the field order right.
