Thread: Youtube HQ

  1. #1

    Default Youtube HQ

    Hey guys,


    This is my first time using Sony Vegas Pro to export a video before I upload it to YouTube. In the past, I have used WMM because all I needed to do was trim the clip and whatnot. When using WMM, I always got a 'Watch in High Quality' option.

    However, this time, I'm trying to render the video into a h.264 file that will give a HQ option on YouTube. I want the video to fill the entire player like in video. I tried what was explained in that video, but got no success.

    EDIT: Double click on the video to visit the YouTube page; and then you'll see what I mean.

    My camera is a Sony DCR-SR45 that records video at 720x480 with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

    So far, I have uploaded many different files to YouTube, and only one of which got the HQ option. It can be found . However, there are Letterboxes around the video.

    Does anybody have any suggestions?


    Thanks,

    Matt

    16:9 is widescreen.. you need to change the aspect ratio to 4:3 in vegas

    For YT I use a wmv file with the following settings. These settings are the result of extensive experimentation especially by Mark Watson of this parish and there is a thread all about it somewhere but I've failed to find it!

    WMV file
    Create a custom template (you can save it as Youtube)

    Project tab: Video rendering quality: Best

    Video tab:
    Mode: Bit rate VBR
    Format: Windows Media Video 9
    Image Size: High Definition (1280 x 720)
    Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square
    Frame rate (to suit, PAL suits me as source is PAL)
    Average bps: 3M

    Give that a try. It always results in a High Quality Widescreen option for me.

    Will it still work even though my camera doesn't record to HD?

    Yes - all my stuff is standard definition (as is Mark W's). Don't buy the hype. YouTube High Definition is NOT High Definition (notice they no longer call it HD) it's just higher quality than previous/normal quality YouTube - and it's pretty good in my opinion.

    EDIT: Just realised they DO still call it HD!

    There's three different YouTube playback settings. There's regular, High Quality, and HD. They're all different. They support up to 720p HD.

    The settings I posted (Mark's settings) definitely give you a YT "HD" version. Irrespective of source being SD.
