The specs of the camcorder Sony HDR CX455 states that it can record videos in the following formats:
1920 x 1080p at 24/30/60 fps (50 Mb/s XAVC S)
1440 x 1080i at 60 fps (5 Mb/s AVCHD)
1280 x 720p at 30 fps (3 Mb/s MP4)
It also says that "The HDR-CX455 records 4K and HD movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Additionally, you can chose to record HD in AVCHD (ideal for HDTV and Blu-ray disc burning) or MP4 (ideal for sharing over the internet)."
(Please note the part in the paragraph above that says "MPEG-4")
Now, unless I am mistaken, YouTube does not take the format XAVC S and AVCHD. Instead, YouTube does take the MP4 format.
But, I don't want to use the format MP4 at 1280 x 720p, which is a low resolution.
If I use this camcorder, can I record videos in the MP4 format at 1920 x 1080i so that I can load the videos to YouTube ?
