I just started a video blog on YouTube. I have no experience of video production or editing, and have a completely noobish question.
I recorded a video using my laptop's built-in webcam for upload to YouTube, but it was 29 minutes long. YouTube won't let me upload videos longer than 10 minutes so I tried to split it into 4 sections. To start with I simply used a free piece of downloadable software (Avidemux), found a natural sentence break and set point A and B markers. However, this caused pixillation and sound issues. I then tried to use keyframes as markers to solve this problem, but whilst the sound worked, the video still began to pixillate.
It seems like such a simple thing to do, split one 30-minute video into four roughly equal sections, but it's driving me completely to distraction! Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?
FYI, I recorded the video in .ogv format (I had no choice, that's all it would allow), then converted it to .mp4 and .avi in various attempts to edit it. I run Ubuntu Linux OS 9.04
Thanks everyone in advance!
