Hi everyone and thanks for taking the time to read, I'm a long time reader first time poster.
I have just taken on a job looking after some IT for a TV show. I'm looking after the online media. The shows are uploaded to dropbox which is where I get them. I then have to get them on to YouTube and Facebook.
The shows are in MPEG-2 format at about 26.3Mbit/s, and each episode comes out at about 6GB each, it is a bit cumbersome to download then upload the files, our internet is ok but only broadband. My questions are:
1. (possibly should be in a different forum) Is there an easy way to get a video from Dropbox to YouTube? I have tried Zapier, it worked once but invariably times out because of the size of the files.
2. I have tried converting the MPEG file to something more manageable, I try taking it into Apple Compressor and it just crashes the program, how can I convert it? And what should I convert it to, I don't want to mess up the quality.
I'm running an iMac on OS 10.12.6 and Compressor 4.3.2
