Uploading to YouTube
« on: May 02, 2012, 07:52:53 AM »
What format do you all use to upload to YouTube? I've tried AVI, and and an FLV file made by the official Adobe Media Encoder, and neither works: the former fails outright, and the latter fails at 95% conversion. I'm trying AME's H.264 format (with the "YouTube Widescreen HD" setting) next, but I figure asking you all while the processing carries on would be a wise use of time.

By the way, no; YouTube's tech support provided little to no insight on the matter. >:(

I've used flv, avi and also H264 mkv. What I've noticed is that Youtube has problem with virtual bitrate audio, the mp3, aac or whatever audio encoding you use must be constant bitrate (CBR). Because if you use VBR the audio will get out of sync.

I've been uploading mp4's thru oneload.com. (It used to be tube mogul.)

You can use One Load to upload a video and then distribute it to all your other video sites. In other words, I upload my video once and it shows up on my YouTube and Vimeo channels.

I've found that converting AVIs to F4V, which doesn't take terribly long in AME; CBR, one pass. Uploading to YouTube is quick, too! ;D

If I get to a point where I've got accounts in multiple video-networks, I'll give One Load a try~

Choice "Internet HD 720p" under MainConcept AVC/AAC (*.mp4) on Sony Vegas File->Render As.

Prior to using Vegas I had some occasional luck with WMV.  A lot of it depends on what resolution your camera is recording as.
