Best settings for 720p YouTube
on Feb 2, 2013 at 4:44:47 am

My 90 second video is a 720p 23.98 ProRes. I'm going to convert it using Streamclip.

Going to make an H.264, set the limit data rate to 30,000kbps, and up the quality to 100%. Keep all the sizing as frame rates same as source.

Are these the best settings?? Will having 30,000kbps make it longer to load the video??

I can't find specific answers to the kbps question, so any and all info will help!!

Thanks!!

Joe

If you're not an expert at this encoding thing, why not click the share button, click the youtube button, and choose 'better quality" and be done with it?

Wait wrong FCP. Export to compressor and choose the youtube setting there. They had that in compressor 3, right?

YouTube now accepts ProRes. Just upload and let the YouTube encoder have its way with your master.

And a a gig a minute, that's some long upload! At 3Mb/sec, a normal video would take all night.

Prores (1280x720) is around 100Mbps, so at 3Mbps upload speed, would take 33,3 seconds to upload one second of the movie.
Joe's clip is 90 seconds. so that would take 90 x 33,3 seconds = 2.997 seconds to be uploaded.
That means 49 minutes and 57 seconds.

YouTube recompress everything you upload, but the better the source, the better the quality when streaming.
I guess that for showing a clip to your friends is not worth an almost one hour upload, but if you are making money with your YouTube videos probably is worth.

With my 500 Kbps (1Mbps late at night) I can not dream on uploading Prores.

Going straight out of FCP, you will easily get it to 5000Kbps in H.264, Multipass will further improve quality but takes longer, These will work fine for 720p Footage, Also isnt bad with 1080p
