Hello, I direct a half-hour show and I would like to put it on YouTube. The show is divided into 3 segments so the YT 10 minute max rule is covered. I hold all the copyrights needed and the commercials will be removed. The show is recorded to a DVCPro Tape and digitized via Adobe Premiere Pro v7.0 Columbo (from 2003ish) into .avi files using a Canopus CDVC(?) codec. On average an 8 min segment ends up being about 1.7 GB. Quality, file size, and time are my main issues and where I need the most help. I'd like to use MPEG Streamclip to convert the .avi's into something much smaller in a codec/container which YT can accept. YT has a 1 GB limit but I'm looking to come in +/-100MB after conversion. My main reason for this is the uploading time factor. I've been experimenting and can get the file down to about 150MB using a 320x240 aspect and .mp4/h.264 compression at 75% quailty. This looks good to me in QT. Will it look this good once I upload it to YT? Is there a better compression method? This seems to take hours to upload using YT's Gear. Is there a faster way to do it? I'm really trying to figure it out on my own, but it's just taking too much time, so I wanted to see if you experts could help. I've never tried to do anything on this scale before. All your thoughts are appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. Thanks.
