I frequently pass HD files around in 720p format via thumb drives for folks to view on computers... The best settings I've found so far are the presets for the Vimeo HD output under the H.264. Give them a shot. They'll have a .mp4 extension and will play in most media players and Google chrome.
How do this format look compared to the standard 1280 X 720 format for HD?
I have had lots of difficulty posting to you tube in almost every format they recommend. I constantly end up with 95% failure rate, what has been your experience?

I've had 100% success with that Vimeo HD codec... it's true 720p, so will be
comparable to any 720p footage. I actually quit using YouTube a while back
in favor of Vimeo because Vimeo seems to handle the professional look and HD
video far better than YouTube does.
Give the YT preset a spinn its under H.264.
Ann,Do you think there is any point in increasing the the bit rate for the viemo 1920 X 720 in an effort to improve the video quality or is more likely I am simply increasing file size and render for little or no gain? Thanks!! preset
Sorry, I meant 1280 X 720. Thanks
