I have noticed that people have uploaded up to ten minutes of hd footage on youtube…supposedly there file size is still within the 1gb maximum upload. I cannot get my hd videos to export for 1 gb or less for 10 minutes. the max I get is about 5:45 minutes at a gb of space. I use FCP and export now with 1080i60. any suggestion on a smaller file size without sacrificing quality.

Try rendering MP4 using H.264 – I do that and YouTube takes it fine Also don’t forget to append “&fmt=22” to the end of the link you post to bring it up in HD (like this:

File>Export>Quicktime Conversion. In the dialogue box click “options” at the bottom. In the new dialogue box that appears:
in the Video section click on “Settings:”
Key Frame Every: 15 Frames
Compressor Quality: High
Data rate: 3000kbits/s
In the Video Section click on “Size:”
In the Sound Section click on “Settings”
Rate: 44.1 kHz
Target Bit Rate: 64kbps

The user shouldn’t have to manually add that tag to the end of the URL. If you upload a file with the proper image dimensions, Youtube will give you the HQ/HD button.

Hi Rob –
I know that – But if you append the tag, it taks away one step from the viewer (not all viewers are too savvy about these buttons) as it brings it up in HD to begin with (also, the &fmt=18 brings it up in high quality).

Youtubes upload directions actually change…That’s why I suggested the obvious. Sometimes, if the directions have been previously read,they getupdated…thenoverlooked.
