Please help. I am sure I am not the only neophyte who has run into this. I hope someone can.
I want to:
- Download the video recording of a Facebook livestream.
- Make minor edits in Adobe Premiere Pro (cut footage, add slides and/or music, and transitions)
- Upload the final product to YouTube.
I need to do this twice a day, with a 30-minute livestream session each time.
The MP4 that I download from Facebook is small (around 70 MB) and has these properties:
Type: MPEG Movie File Size: 69.92 MB Image Size: 640 x 360 Frame Rate: 30.00 Source Audio Format: 48000 Hz - Compressed - Stereo Project Audio Format: 48000 Hz - 32 bit floating point - Stereo Total Duration: 00;29;31;19 Pixel Aspect Ratio: 1.0 Alpha: None Video Codec Type: MP4/MOV H.264 4:2:0 Variable Frame Rate Detected –
If I just turn around and upload this file to YouTube unchanged, it uploads and processes straightforwardly and quickly. (My upload speed is 11-12 Mbps)
If I make any edits, though (today I took out 13 seconds of coughing from the middle):
- The output file size balloons (to almost 1.88 MB) using the YouTube SD Pre-set.
- I can reduced the file size to 342 MB by running it through VLC Convert/Save, using the VLC YouTube SD preset.
It has now been 6 hours, and YouTube is showing the file only 26% uploaded (though the progress bar surged to 72% at one point). Not even at the point of "processing" yet.
This happens every time I edit.
I am a total newbie and don't have the luxury to spend time experimenting with settings, most of which I don't understand. Based on what I gleaned from some How-To videos, I did play with various screen sizes (down to 640x360) and bit rates. I have also tried different YouTube and Facebook Presets.
Can someone please help? I want to reach the people in my congregation who use Facebook and those who will only watch YouTube.
