Some general info about the formats used: YouTube uses 4 container formats and 3 diffrent codecs. It depends on the popularity of the video what codecs are used for your video (see below why). Generally, every of your uploaded video will be encoded in h.264 and will be muxed into an .flv and .mp4 container. Thats the standard and this will hapen for every ...

There's actually a big difference between the two. If you're on a budget and don't mind that editing video is not as straight forward, then Motion is actually not a bad route to take. Final Cut allows you to use things you've created in Motion as graphical templates. Motion in and of itself is a 2D(/3D) animation app, it wasn't made for video editing. ...

Very broadly speaking, you have a much easier experience obtaining permission if you are not making money from someone else's content. Most copyright laws recognise 'fair use' -- a small quote or a clip that is proof of someone else having said something. It is customary and advisable to put such clip in a box or window to show that the content is being ...

When uploading to YouTube: no (for now...) Your audio needs to be premixed into one stereo (or mono) channel. When using YouTube's online video editor: yes, but you are limited to voice-over and music tracks For more info: http://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=183851 (see point 4. adding audio)

I worked out a satisfactory solution to this problem. It involves adding the 'Computer RGB to Studio RGB' Video FX to each video track in your Vegas Studio project. This effects the rendered file and project quite a lot but appears normal when uploaded to Youtube: Quicktime Youtube It's possible to disable the track Video FX whilst you work on your ...

Personally I always choose MP4 container and the H.264 codec as this is also the codec YouTube uses in the final video stream. What key-frame rates and compression you need really depends on the footage and it's unfortunately close to impossible to give as a generic answer for this reason. If you have a lot of movements you will need key-frames more often ...

It's referred to as a jump cut. I would guess that perhaps the Apple ads that used it might have made it popular again, but that's just a guess. The idea behind it is to visually show a change in direction of thought since typically it matches up with the start of another phrase. It jumps the viewer forward in time and makes them aware of a subtle change ...

A coworker has just turned me on to using Warp Stabilizer. It's a built-in effect in Adobe Premiere CS6. Before using this tool, I also used After Effects to smooth and stabilize motion. The difference is outstanding. Warp Stabilizer has worked faster, within my workflow, and more reliable than After Effects stabilization has. This has been huge for me. ...

In nearly all countries, copyright protects creative works automatically. Some exceptions and restrictions apply, but unless the author has voluntarily added his work to the public domain or the copyright has expired (common terms are seventy and ninety years after publication or after death of the author), it's safe to assume all songs are copyrighted, ...

What format YT output their video depends on various factors. For most ordinary videos they use H264 encoded streams for video (AAC or MP3 for audio) in form of MP4 and FLV container files. These are just containers holding the encoded video data - although the H264-encoded format is no guarantee with FLV-files (or in theory with MP4 files) as they can also ...

The reason you are losing contrast is because of the codec you are using to export to. YouTube (as well as Vimeo, and practically every other video website nowadays) works using the H.264 codec. Here are YouTube's instructions for how they'd like videos to be encoded for upload. The TL;DR version of that page: Container: .mp4 Audio Codec: AAC-LC ...

While watching the examples it struck me that your video is stuttering as it is over the top with MBPS (23 MB per sec). So I would address your compression scheme first. I recommend that you consider rending your work in mp4 with 5 MB to 10 MB per sec. Here is the recommended video and audio compression as set by the folks at Vimeo for optimizing ...

As of now, Youtube doesn't allow multiple soundtracks other than adding a music-track. So you'll need to create multiple videos with voice-over for different languages. Thankfully however this is already automated using a bash script. Demo Video with Automatic voice-over translation from SRT subtitles using eSpeak VoiceOver Script Version 0.3 to convert ...

I struggled with a similar issue on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. I fixed the problem using the static ffmpeg build which is available from http://ffmpeg.gusari.org/static/64bit/ffmpeg.static.64bit.latest.tar.gz

Amazingly, the best place to start with a question like this is Youtube. Believe it or not they have help file that explain the process with quite a bit of detail: https://support.google.com/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1722171&topic=2888648&ctx=topic On Youtube itself many others have offered up video tutorials on how to do it: ...

Adobe After Effects includes stabilization that is of similar or superior quality to Youtube's but it is also not a cheap software package. I don't know of any particularly cheap software stabilization options that do a high end job.

What you need is no different from what you need for any video production effort. You need a decent camera and camera work, which likely involves a decent tripod, decent lighting, decent scripting, decent acting, decent editing and decent compression. The camera and camera work ensure that the video is clear and that it isn't distractingly shaky and that ...

There are presets for Youtube specifically already in Adobe Media Encoder. I would suggest using one of them. You can also find the technical recommendations from Youtube on how to encode the videos here, however I believe the presets already conform to these recommendations.

Have you tried to disable graphic card rendering? Incompatible graphic cards or drivers may cause the exact symptoms you describe. Preview may not use graphic card rendering, as this is controlled by another setting. Select Options|Preferences Go to tab card "Video" Set "GPU acceleration of video processing" to "Off" When rendering: Open your render ...

"Royalty free" is funny that way, because the content is actually copyrighted - but you're given permission to use it. If you have your source, and can point to a licence that states 'royalty free' you should be able to get Youtube to reactivate your video. You'd probably need to give credits where credit's due in your about text.


2

The royalty free music is still copy-written. You have purchased a right to use it without paying royalties, but YouTube doesn't know that you have those rights. You need to provide the necessary documentation to YouTube that you have the right to use it there (license statement from your purchase) and they should re-activate it for you. They do this to ...

you can use something like a M/E switcher with a multiviewer to do this. Just feed the program out into the computer you are streaming from using an input card. I have not used youtube streaming, but I know that justin.tv or other streaming services can use something like OBS to switch between scenes which you can setup with different video inputs in ...

I've answered a similar question some time ago. YouTube added a few codecs since then but all the info there still applys: What codec will my Youtube uploads be output in and what codec should I use to upload? Short answer: Yes if you are concerned about maximum quality a lossless codec or visually lossless codec is the way to go. Re-encoding always means ...

Youtube stores whatever you upload and transcodes to other formats using their own versions of multiple compression formats including h.264 and webm. All transcodes go from the same original file that you upload and are stored after transcoding. Youtube may change the options used from time to time and save new encodes of the video. Encodes are generally ...

Why would you want your videos in the .3gp container to begin with? Its a very irrelevant format nowadays, there is practically no device that supports the 3gp container but not MP4 at the same time. Its nothing but a close derivative of MP4, they are very similar container formats holding the same codec. If you want to support a lot of devices using h264 in ...

For best results on any Youtube upload it is always best to follow the recommended video encoding settings.

The source video from YouTube is Standard Definition not HD, so your project properties in Vegas are not set right nor can they be set to 1080p. Simply, you can't take an SD video and make it into an HD video. The proper way to set Vegas project properties is to use the folder icon far right top of the properties pop up window, this will allow you to "match ...

MotionBend, http://www.motionbend.com, might be what you are looking for, http://www.fcp.co/final-cut-pro/news/1119-motionbend-takes-video-stabilisation-to-the-next-level-and-adds-fcpx-xml-export. Do you have any examples of videos you are trying to stabilize ?

Based on the link you added in your comment, I would say you could use After Effects, and Premiere for this very easily...there may be easier/cheaper solutions but essentially what you are going for is pretty easy to make Graphic designing aside you could probably learn and do this in a day or two, if you have any sort of background in photoshop or ...

It honestly looks like something got corrupted with your export. Have you tried encoding it more than once? 12 megabits per second with a 24mpbs peak should be more than sufficient for high quality 1080p video. If anything, it may be excessive. The quality you are getting looks more like what I'd expect at sub-1 mbps video for this quality level. As an ...
