    Hello. I have a 24inch 2 gig iMac on Tiger with iLife 06. I've recently filmed approx 2hrs of footage of a wedding on dv format. What's my best method of editing and then hosting good quality footage on say YouTube. I'm a little concerned as a 5 min part of the speech took 1gig of data on best quality and YouTube claimed it would take me 10 hrs to upload. Are there better ways?

    DV encoded video takes up to 12GB/h, which is fine for editing.

    But in order for uploading it to YouTube you have to convert it to an.mp4 or .mov with the .h264 codec, but I don't know if it can be done via iMovie 06.

    You can just export your edited video from iMovie and then re-encode it to a .h264 encoded video via MPEG Streamclip.

    You can find it at

    Also use MRoogle for finding some threads discussing your question.
