Fast Start Compressed Header - Compressor
on Sep 25, 2008 at 8:01:36 pm

Hello I am using Compressor straight out of Final Cut Pro. I found a nice preset in the "H264 for Ipod Video at 640 x 480".

This is for streaming off our websites and the :30 spots look great.

However with this preset I can not find a place to adjust "Fast Start Compressed Header" so that it does not have to download all at once.

So logically I thought that I would create my own preset based off of their preset.

OK great, well it does not LOOK great at all right. Looks terrible and I believe that it is the Average data rate vs the Maximum data rate. They have a variable data rate 1.5 Mbps to 4 Mbps. This keeps it small in size and looks good. When I build a preset it only gives me the option to a. Automatic bit or b. Maximum bit rate. If I go max at 4Mbps then it way to big.

so I need to know can I either:

1. Make a preset and set a variable bit rate.
2. Take the IPOD setting that they have and make it have a Fast Start Compressed Header.

Below are the settings for both. 1st - their preset 2nd - mine.
