These output settings should give you excellent results on most oline video sites.
However, if you're outputting video for a web site, here's what I recommend in my book:
Share/Computer/MOV (this will produce an MP4):
Frame Rate: 15fps
Field Type: Progressive
Limit Data Rate to 55 kbps
Audio Codec: AAC
Thank you very much for your reply. I want to clarify something, as it didn't seem to come out right. I'm using PE7.
When you wrote "Limit Data Rate to 55p kbps," do you mean set the "Bitrate setting" slider to 55? (I'm not sure what the "p" means, though that didn't come out right).
Also, what is a good file size for a 10 min. 560x315 .mov video (embedded on a website for jw player viewing) ---- about 120mb, or more/less?
Getting adequate quality vs file sizes (also translates to load/streaming times, on the Web), is a balancing act. It is part science (Bit-Rate) and part art (the quality). Steve's Bit-Rates are great starting points, but only you can make the final determination, whether the quality is adequate vs the download times. Testing and critical viewing, are the only ways to make that determination. I suggest keeping notes of your tests, and when you find that "golden balance," go from that in the future.
