View Full Version : FCX to YouTube or Blogger, Best way to Export?

Jun 18, 2009, 12:16 PM
I have been using FCX HD to make movies, but I am attempting to upload a movie now to blogger and YouTube. I have a video that's just under five minutes but tops out at about 1.75 MB -- apparently too big for either of these sites.
Obviously lots of movies on YouTube are longer than five minutes, so I'm obviously exporting it as too large a file.
Which export format or procedure is going to give me the most manageable online file with the best quality?
Thanks for any advice.

try h.264. In what format are you exporting now?

Yes h.264 is fantastic quality -- I just finished a 3-minute video and it was only 163 MB even with high quality settings. When you go to upload to youtube there's a place to click for format suggestions. They seem to like h.264 and AAC.
