Subject: Tech: YouTube upload formats?
From: Mick Pearce (MCP)
Date: 06 Mar 12 - 04:01 PM

I recently uploaded some videos to YouTube (MickPearceMusic), but the uploads took a long time. The files I'm uploading are mp4(H264+AAC) with 1280x720 resolution and audio bitrate 384. The files are of the order of 300-500Mb and it's taking between 1.5 and 2.5 hrs to upload (about 2.4 hours for a 5 min video). I saw that youtube recommend uploading the highest res you can (and this is not my highest), but is it worth it? What do others upload and what sort of time does it take?

I asked this question on the Mudcatters on YouTube thread and Tootler did give me some info:

"I generally upload mpeg2 files with a video resolution of 720X576. My video camera isn't HD so there's no point in using HD formats for me. A typical 3 - 4 minute video will upload in about 10 mins or even less. Doing a quick check, my videos are about 50 - 100 MB."

My files are of the order of 300-500Mb but are taking vastly longer.

There are several mudcatters who upload to YouTube and I was wondering what formats they were using and what sort of upload times they were getting.
