Long-form video encoding for YouTube
on Sep 4, 2016 at 11:17:08 am

Hi,

I have 2 long-form videos I need to render and upload to YouTube but if I follow the methods usually applied to 2-3 minute videos I end up with enormous files. I am wondering if anyone knows of any other way's/codecs this can be done?

For example @ h.264

1 x 30 minute 1080p 25fps @ h.264 16mbps = 3501MB
1 x 4.5 hour 720p 25fps @ h.264 6mbps = 12349MB

I can't really lower the bitrate any further because the pixelation becomes very apparent. So am I stuck with these? Does YouTube even allow files this big to be uploaded?!

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

You can upload a 20Gb to YouTube. So those sizes are fine, just leave it working.

There's no way around long form content and data rates. It's just math. So you either live with those sizes or you lower your data rate to get a smaller overall file size which will impact image quality. Until h.265 becomes a usable standard this is the encoding dance we have to do.
