Slight letterboxing in youtube player from SD video

Apr 21, 2013 1:13 PM

I have uploaded a video to youtube and in the youtube player I get a slight letterbox. Looking at other SD videos on youtube I don't notice this.

Video was shot on a Samsung F40 BN SD, My settings in PE11 was NTSC Flash memory  standard 48khz. I uploaded in PE11 using youtube

H.264   640x480.

    This camcorder shoots standard definition (720x480) MP4s. But the specs aren't clear online: Is this 4:3 or 16:9 video?


    When you look under the Edit menu in your Premiere Elements project, what Project Settings are listed?

    Try creating a new project. On the New Project option screen, click Settings and select the settings for a Flip Mino (standard definition). Then, back at the New Projec screen, select the option to Force Settings on Project.


    Those project settings should better fit your video.


    Then,  to output a video for YouTube, use Publish & Share/Computer/AVCHD and select the Vimeo SD preset.
