Chris, the video degrades because YT does a FLV conversion of the files, no matter quality your source file is. The way around this is to try to use native FLV formta. There's a free flv converter called Moyea Video4Web converter, that can convert any video to FLV at different bitrates. Try rendering a good quality video in vegas, and then try converting it to a good quality in FLV and upload on YT. I think this will do the trick.


rightio cheers Ivan, I`ll give that a crack.

The only probs with the instructional vid Skenny put up is that you need Vegas Pro to be able to access the custom features sad.gif I have vegas Platinum

lil update:

I tried Ivans suggestion, I rendered to a good quality, the last one I tried was actually .mov but really most of them that I tried turned out to be good quality just varying file sizes.

Moyea video4web, was great cut my largest file (89mb) down to 29mb, that was the first good start, I used the high quality setting and adjusted the bitrate setting to its highest, then uploaded to you tube, I was then at least able to get the option underneath the video to watch in high quality, which looked ok, not too bad at all.

so, next phase I`ll experiment with Siggums codes for the embeded links from youtube to see if we can insert them with the higher quality settings smile.gif

at least I`m on the right track at last! cheers Ivan smile.gif

if you have a vid that has the "higher quality" option add &ap=%2526fmt%3D18 to the end of the embeded code in the forum, that should then play it in HQ

I`ve been trialing it on another vid that gives me the option and it works, only trouble is the video wasnt that great in the first place! lol, I`m just upoading one now, if it gives me that option (for some reason its only certain files?) then I`ll post the results, but give it a try smile.gif

not telling ...................... laugh.gif


right, basically, if you follow Ivans advice above, render your video into really good quality, then convert it with a high bitrate using video4web, (use the youtube option but change the settings to higher quality) upload and wait for it to process, afte a while it should give the two options, one normal and one higher quality, then use "&ap=%2526fmt%3D18" at the end of your embeded code in the forum and it will automatically play the higher quality version smile.gif it will only work on youtube videos that have the two playback options.
