Youtube presets

Wed Jan 08, 2014 5:46 am
I've been encoding a lot of my videos thus far in the H264 preset, under File Rendering, but because of the long upload time, and now VERY long processing time on YT, I did a test encode in the YT 720p preset.

And the quality SUCKED. Blocky, pixelly, yuck. I duplicated the preset, and ramped the bitrate from 2M to 6M, but still it looks like ****. I tried comparing the options used on the H264 preset to the YT preset, and they don't seem to be comparable.

So has anyone made a preset that YT likes that doesn't look like ****? I mostly edit video game footage, if that makes any difference.

Well, I tried the Vimeo preset... But for some reason the output has a lot of screen tearing, even at 30fps. ???

Does that replace the encoding options for the YT preset, or the h264?

there were some pretty decent youtube render profiles that had been optimized giving pretty good quality and not too bad a file size, but since the Add new Render profiles and the other addons menus still dont work (is that over a year now) i dont know how or where to download them.

Im trying out the recomended settings in a previous post to see how it goes.

Code: Select all
f=mp4 acodec=libmp3lame ab=160k ar=44100 ac=2 pix_fmt=yuv420p vcodec=libx264 minrate=0 b=5000k b_strategy=1 subcmp=2 cmp=2 coder=1 flags=+loop flags2=dct8x8 qmax=51 subq=7 qmin=10 qcomp=0.6 qdiff=4 trellis=1 aspect=%dar


Create a new profile and put the above into the parameters box.

The rendered file on my machine is very close to the original. The video i was editing was recorded on a GE dv1 1080p video recorder. its not the best camara. Fixed focus, and it saves in quicktime movie format so there is compression going on already. I find it to be a bit fuzzy in darker light.

the original file was 99mb. though i did cut some pieces out the original video. the rendered file came out at 60mb. So if your looking in a much lower file size but still with good quality, it may not be the render profile your looking ffor.
