I have the EyeTV 250 Plus, and I have been recording some of my video games onto my computer so that I can edit them and make some cool machinima videos. However, this is my first time editing a movie so that I can upload it to a site, such as Gametrailers, YouTube, etc. The EyeTV can capture the video obviously in a wide range of qualities. I'm looking for a middle ground, as the Extended Play encoding option has good quality and doesn't require lots of storage, I would use that - because even that looks better than the quality of videos I find on YouTube, or even more sites such as Gametrailers that support higher quality videos. Even so, should I still record in the Highest Quality setting? I know that when you upload it the site compresses everything so everything becomes worse anyway, so starting with the highest quality possible will ensure the highest quality after all compression - but is that really necessary? I just don't want to record in High Quality only to have it all be wasted space after I upload it, whereas Extended Play would have saved me more space. Any thoughts? Lastly, what's the best file type to use to export it? H.264? Quicktime? MPEG-4? DV? Not sure what most sites seem to respond best too.
