I have a 32 minute 1080p video that I would like like to upload to you tube. I have been told to ignore you tube recommended target bit rate settings of 8 to 10 megabits per second. They say that was for another era when computers and the internet were slow as molasses. That will not provide good quality and that I should increase it to at least 25. Is the bitrate the key factor that will allow the video to play on all devices? I know it will increase my file size to 8Gb if I choose this bit rate. I do have some animation on my video. So what is the real scoop on all this. I just want to have it play smoothly on all devices smartphone computer tablet at the high highest quality. If a person has a dial up internet connection and a 10 year old computer I don’t want them to access the video if it means the other 99.9percent can have it play at a high bit rate and smooth delivery.
Simple. Export it at 25 Mbps and upload it to youtube. Youtube will compress it anyway. Google yielded the following info:
“The maximum file size you’ll be able to upload to YouTube is 128GB and the maximum duration is 11 hours.”
I just use the presets in Premiere – I rarely change them – the youtube and the Vimeo ones work fine for me.
