[Cody Waite] "because it is optimized for youtube."

You may have too of expectations in regards to "optimized for youtube"! :-) Those are really just presets for YouTube to help people out who don't understand compression. The file it's creating is just a regular mp4 wrapper with the h.264 codec. There's nothing unique that it's doing to the file. As you know, processing for YouTube is YouTube taking your file and re-transcoding it to work throughout their system. That process can depend on (1) your account standing, (2) the amount, number, and length of videos in front of you in the queue, and (3) the overall length and size of the videos you upload.

Also keep in mind that YouTube is "processing" 100 hours of video every minute of every day. That's a lot of data to transcode! Your submissions are falling into that queue. Again, CC has no impact on those aspects. The file that it creates is a standard h.264 mp4 that is used on Vimeo, Facebook, YouTube, etc. I would assume that your lag times are related to the overall sheer size and volume of data that YouTube is trying to process.

Just my $.02
