I am dealing with this for a long time now and i hope somebody can help me.
I am using Premiere Pro CC on my MAC 10.8.4.
Basicly I want to export my video in an format thats played on windows media player and MAC Standard Video Player. (So I can use it on my website and everybody can watch it without installing flash or something else.)
After some experiments following settings work good for me:
VBR: 5, 5
The result works both in Windows Media and on Mac.
BUT: 1080 is to large for the web. As soon as I change the resolution to 720p (All other settings stay the same!!!) Windows media player gets an error when opening it.
Does anybody know why? Or is the a other way to export my video in 720p for use on mac and windows without installing a plugin?
I am looking foreward for your answers!
Thank u guys!!!
Lower the profile/level accordently. See how that will work
BUT: 1080 is to large for the web.
I disagree. With the bulk of computer monitors being 1920 x 1080 these days, that resolution is perfect for the web.
