Youtube High Quality

Lately I've been spending my time figuring out what the best settings were to get a nice high quality upload. I orignally used Windows Movie Maker but later moved to Sony Vegas because it was more professional.

Little did I know that Windows Movie Maker seems to work well with Youtube. By dragging an AVI into WMM and rendering it as 'Best Quality for Playback on PC', Youtube later adds the option to watch it in High Quality.

I found this out when I noticed my older videos had that option and my newer ones which were made with Vegas did not.

So there you have it! Sure make your videos in Vegas but render as a High Quality AVI, import into WMM and render as a WMV. Technically it'll render the video in 760x something else...I think Youtube recognises that as a High Quality size. After a few hours the video will get the 'Watch in High Quality' button under views so be patient!

Hope this helps others because I can now upload better quality Portal and EP2 vids! People have already noticed and commented!

Oh no. I am far too busy having lay-ins and exercising my body all day long to work!

You can try Riva FLV Encoder for your you tube videos. Its free.
Change the movie size to 480x360, enable deinterlace, make your bitrate as high as possible without going over the 100mb size limit, then output it as a .flv file.
It works for most video files, it says its good with .avi but when I try to use this with my recorded fraps videos I get an error. Maybe it will work for you though. It works great with my other videos at least.

Yeah I used to use that. Also according to YouTube my filesize limit is 1024 MB...Perhaps they updated the filesize :S
