THIS QUESTION RELATES TO EXPORT FROM PP CC ON WINDOWS 10...

I am at my wit's end with mangled videos, mostly on YouTube. I know folks recommend uploading Quicktime/ProRes. But as you already know, exporting to ProRes from Premiere on Windows isn't possible. So what are my options for optimal playback? Currently, exporting to H.264 (.mp4), even with matching the source bitrate (in this case 45Mbps) isn't cutting it. Workflow/settings in Adobe Media Encoder would be especially helpful. Thank you in advance!

Related... I know Vimeo is considered "the filmmaker's choice" for hosting their content. And generally the content IS superior (both in terms of content and image quality). I know that at least some of the superior image quality is due to many of these folks knowing their craft. But is there a difference in compression "aggressiveness" between the two services?

Have you read YouTube's recommendations?

Little things like using High Profile (some encoders default to Main) and CABAC entropy (some encoders default to CAVLC) can make a difference. Also Key Frame rate (GOP) being half the frame rate can also help improved quality.

Thanks, Craig. Yes, looks like AME only drops to CAVLC entropy at the Baseline profile. Got that covered with High and Level 5.
