im currently trying to encode a video to youtube but having some issues with it.
the video uses an overlay to give an old projecter type effect to it which dust marks, vertical lines and flicker. However the problem im having is that this overlay causes such massive unpredictability in the video that its getting squashed to oblivion by youtubes compression and all i have is a loas of macro blocks that show absolutley nothing.
YouTube - It began in Manchester...
ive compressed it to the youtube preset on H.264 which yielded the above results. I then tried increasing the profile to high and considerably upping the ideal bitrate to around 5. its till not producing any kind of clarity however.
obviously i know youtube will tear a chunk out of this video no matter what but short of hosting it myself as a high bitrate flv (i dont own any webspace so this is very much a last resort) im not entirely sure how to get this uploaded in a high enough quality to see whats going on with it.
Does anybody know a way i can encode this to get this uploaded in a way thats even slightly worth my effort? pref to YT but any other free site which allows you to embed the track on webpages would do (if i have to pay ill just go down the webspace route).
i havent tried uploading the .avi file yet, as ive already done two attempts and wanted to ask around before i went through it again.
any help would be greatly appreciated.
