Hey there. I followed a guide from the user guide forum on what codec to use to upload to youtube in high quality, and i did it an uploaded and everything, i was quite impressed as the file was quite small even with it's quality.
I used to following settings from the guide.
- Export uncompressed video and audio as MOV or AVI
- Make sure your video is progressive/deinterlaced
- If your video is SD NTSC, then export as 640×480 (if you are using PAL you will need to crop first)
- If your video is HD or 16:9 wide screen, export as 640×360
- Use 44.1KHz Sample rate to avoid audio quality issues
- For Bitrate kbps, choose 4080
- Set Frames per Second to 29.97
The guide is here: How To Encode Your Videos For YouTube’s New High Quality Option - Web Video Techniques
The video however, turned out like this:

It's my first video I've created just to test the codec, hence no sound or editing...
It's a clip from a game i play, it's just meant to be two wolves dancing opposite each other... which you can barely make out...
It works perfectly when i use VLC Media Player to play it.
So does anyone know why this didn't turn out smooth on Youtube?
Thanks in advance,
P.S Is there a general output (codec) format i can use that will work with anything? Like... what is used for clips i download off of the internet? because they work nice on the Pc and on a DVD player if i burn them...
