I have some live performance music videos I would like to upload to youtube. I have the original source on DVD and have used handbrake 9 to rip them with the following settings: Format mp4 Output : 320x240 (source 730x576) Codec : avc/h.264 Encoder : x264 (h.264 Main) fps : 25 average bitrate : 2000 Encoding : Single pass Deinterlace : Slowest Denoise : Strong anamorphic : Off keep aspect ratio : On Sound : AC3 Sample Rate : 44.1khz Bitrate : 160 Stereo When I look at the resultant video the quality is truly superb. However when I upload it to youtube the quality on youtube is terrible. I am at my wits end, having tried all sorts of combinations. The above settings came from hours/days trawling around sites to find the best combination of settings that would work on youtube but to no avail. There are many examples on youtube of great quality video so it's clearly possible and the source video I have is superb so I am desperately looking for someone to help me in the process of ripping video off a DVD and uploading to youtube with great quality. Can anyone help? Vanilla NOTE: The bands are unsigned and have granted me the right to promote their content online! this is not an illegal act!
