In order to reduce file size, Ive been using Handbrake to reencode video from my mobile and hd camcorder to m4v files with a bit rate of 4000 kb/s to ensure the hd resolution is retained by Youtube.

Using fast deinterlace as well for the stuff from the camcorder.

What encoders are you guys using, the format and your settings for non hd/hd files?

Cheers

Generally we just follow what they recommend here:
https://support.google.com/youtube/bin/static.py?hl=en&guide=1728585&topic=1728573&page=guide.cs

So: h.264 video, AAC audio, bitrate suitable for for 720, not bothering with 1080p bitrates on ADSL2+ upload speed Cry

The misuses quite likes Sony Vegas for editing, more control and options than basic tools like Windows Movier Maker or iMovie not as insane learning curve as Adobe Premiere.

Sometimes use Handbrake for encoding, but Vegas can output h.264 directly so it's not a problem.

Thanks for the link! Can't believe I haven't seen that particular guide before. I'm pretty much on the right track, but will give Sony Vegas a go!
