Hi, I have a fifteen minute video (320 x 180) that I'd like to upload to YouTube, but I can't find a decent preset for exporting it. When I try to export with MPEG2, the resulting video has an odd, jerking motion to it. MPEG4 exports everything as blurrily as possible. AVI works great, but the file sizes are all way over 2 gigabytes, which is YouTube's limit. The only one that works, it seems, is WMV, but each file takes 2+ hours to upload, and, once online, the videos load excruciatingly slowly.
So, for those of you who export for YouTube: What presets do you use?
Try the H264 Youtube preset.
I've had issues with this too. When I used the H.264 codec Youtube was unable to convert the file type and in their trouble-shooting section they actually recommend not using H.264 - which is odd considering premiere pro has a Youtube setting under the H.264 export option.
