I think 5000 is a pretty safe data rate usually. It's what Vimeo recommends on their Compression page ( ). In my experience, sometimes you just have to throw a higher data rate at the video to get the results you want. The trade off being you'll have a larger file (what I would call a deliverable - you're delivering in its final form somewhere).

I just posted a video on YouTube last week with a data rate of 30,000kb/s. Yes, it was overkill. But at the same time the only penalty I incurred was a slightly longer upload time. If you're willing to wait for the upload, YouTube can choke down up to 10GB files (maybe 20GB...haven't checked in awhile). Vimeo is a bit of a different story as space there is much more limited. But @ 1080p I think you should be around 7500kb/s if not at 10000kb/s.

Just my $.02.
