    jvc everio s Gz-MS100 harddrive sd
    ffmpegx (convert program)

    so i convert the file into h265 and dv and mp4

    Thanks for the link. I basically followed that but still get terrible quality. That link is now 1 year old now, and YouTube now recommends 640x480 and accepts files up to 1GB.

    I still get bad results in both resolutions. (Source filmed in DV, and exported in iMovie HD)

    I wonder if one reason is I filmed in widescreen and recoding for 4/3 export is messing it up?

    both imovies
    mpeg streamclip

    jvc gz-ms100 hard drive

    i hook up my camera to my mac i open the camera folder

    i get .mod files (they not .mp4 or wmv or avi or dv)

    i heard that i need to convert it but

    i dont know what do but i done everything nothing came clear on youtube

    but it came clear to watch it on dvd or computer and on tv no youtube

    [ i need to add my movie on youtube so all my friends and fans watch all at this one big time zone so i can get big hits]

    thank you

    I have no idea what file type that is, but apparently your camera has a one touch YouTube upload?

    I don't think it's possible to get any better quality with YouTube though. If you want better quality, try Viddler.
