very best way to compress for youtube
on Apr 29, 2013 at 4:01:37 pm

hi all

can anyone recommend the very best way to compress for youtube?

most up-to-date info only please...

this is YT latest spec guide: http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en-GB&answer=1722171

my project is 1920x1080 (p) PAL 25fps

we've been using mpeg streamclip and will try compressor 4.07 next

will be using 50k bt rate (50,000)

just checking we're not throwing away any quality we don't need to

thanks

e.s.

When I open up the older compressor it also has a YouTube sharing function. Not sure how up to date those settings are though.

And if the actual sharing doesn't work, you'll find the converted file in the shared folder inside the project using finder. Then upload directly via a browser. Makes perfect files in my experience.

Your settings look good and mpeg streamclip can get the job done.

One thing neither MPEG streamclip nor FCPX's share to youtube doesn't do is give you the option for fast start and compressed header. Compressor does.

Go to the Share menu.

Select YouTube.

If you've set up your YouTube account ID info and password properly - you click Share and a perfectly encoded version appears in your YouTube account.

Pretty much as simple as that.

I usually use compressor but I tried the share to Youtube approach. The video came out with these settings.
HD 720p.mov
H.264, 1,280 x 720 (1,248 x 720)
Audoe AAC, 48000 Hz, Stereo (L R
Data Rate 10.34 Mbit/s
29.97 FPS

Note, the raw video was 1080i AVCHD. Of course the quicktime inspector does not show all the setting such as fast start for the internet.

720p scales beautifully to all sorts of modern mobile platforms. It creates lovely iPad & iPhone retina display images and great looking android and even older style cel phone deployments.

So it's become my default. I shoot and produce in 1080 - but I typically output everything to 720p 24 frame for delivery because it both compresses and scales so well across my most important distribution platform, and that's the internet.

FWIW.

FCP7 doesn't have a share menu.

hi all

thanks for all your comments

so it looks like we will gor for this:

exporting from fcp7 at original settings (prores etc)

use latest version of compressor (4.0.7) to make
an mp4 file that's h264
with youtube's highest acceptable bit rate (50000kb!)
at full 1920x1080. (which is client specification, though point-taken about 720, thanks).
with AAC stereo audio at appropriate bit rate as per YT guidelines.(linked above in my first post)

now it's just a question of whether to use either of these compressor streaming options:
fast start
or
fast start - compressed header

larry jordan's clip doesn't say to do this.

doesn't YT make this happen anyway? when they re-compress (AS THEY DO!) ?

OR...
is it better to do it in compressor ourselves so YT has less work to do?

- anyone work at google/YT??

we aim to test both on private YT links but upload times are long!

thanks
