I'm new to video and Premiere Pro and I've been trying to troubleshoot the cause of choppy video when I upload to Youtube. I've read in the forums about changing the .mov files produced by the D7000 into .mpg files, but so far that hasn't stopped my uploaded vids from pixellating--badly when there's quite a bit of motion in the scene, and sometimes to a lesser extent when not much is happening.
Initially, I thought the video was just too much for each computer viewing it, because different machines (home laptop, work laptop, ipad, etc...) show the problem areas a little differently. The quality of the video when uploaded is good, so if needed I can back off in that respect. I'll be producing videos regularly for my job and need to get this issue remedied.
Any help with this issue will be greatly appreciated.
Sorry, forgot to add that I currently work with a Dell Latitude E6520 i5 @2.50GHz / 4 GB Ram / Windows 7 64-bit OS. I'm not sure about the video card. I bet it's nothing special b/c it's from Dell's office range.
Choppy video on the system described is logical with the source material you are editing. You are using DSLR material, which is a difficult codec and requires quite a beefy computer. Unfortunately, your Dell is way underpowered for that material and does not meet minimum requirements.
If the YouTube playback quality is lacking on YT, use a YouTube H.264 preset for the export. Do not use any QT codec on export.
I checked out your link but noticed that your codec rating slide doesn't list DSLR. Does it fit in with the "easy" "intermediate" or "difficult"?
I have been using a H.264 preset for export. I use the Youtube Widescreen HD preset.
Is it possible to dumb-down the quality some to be able to work on my computer? If so, what are some ways to accomplish this?
This seemed to work when the video was viewed on Youtube, so I guess I'll have to find that sweet spot for the bitrate.
I do have another question. Even with the higher bitrate, the mp4 video exported from Premiere Pro looked good when viewed with Windows Media Player but had problems when viewed through Youtube. Why is my computer power an issue only with the video's output on Youtube?
