What ever you do, YouTube is going to re-encode it and rez down the quality. So, with YouTube, it's hard to tell what's going to work well.
Sometimes, in fact, the higher the quality of the file you give them, the more they destroy it with their re-encoding!
Have you tried to FLV output for YouTube under the Share tab?
After numerous trials and extensive searches on forums (with solutions way too complicated for me) this is my recipe.
(After upgrading to PE 7 I hoped that PE would do the trick, but no.)
1. Premiere Elements.
Export ("Share") to harddisk, DV-AVI, 4:3 or Widescreen doesn't matter.
2. Windows Movie Maker.
Import this AVI-file. You won't need to change or edit anything.
Just "publish" (to disk) in
WMV-format, dvd-quality (4:3 size) PAL 3,0 M.
3. You Tube.
Upload to YouTube.
Then wait (approx 10 min. per minute movietime) until the uploaded movie is released and online in high quality.
Max size is 100 Mb; but there are work arounds for that too.
If you're convinced that that's the best recipe, Felix, can I post it to our FAQs?
Well, "the best"...
It worked and works pretty well for me, with movies of 10 or less minutes.
I tried various other ways, each of them taking a lot of time, having to download and install utilities and codecs, tweaking settings etc.
But ultimately none did work... (may very well be because I did something wrong).
This trick with Movie Maker (not invented by me, don't recall where I picked it up) is simple, yet works.
So: certainly you can post it to the FAQs, but all honour to the real inventor.
Thanks, Felix. I've posted your method to the version 7 FAQ library.
