I am working in Premiere 5.5 on some content that is headed for the web.
Currently, in order to produce a video that works on all platforms and mobile devices - I have to take the video rendered from Premiere thru meda encoder and run it thru the program HandBrake to get it to play across the board.
I am wondering if there is a preset in the H.264 format that will allow me to make a video for all platforms and mobile devices without using Handbrake - essentially eliminating this extra step.
Also - is there a suggested frame size for mobile devices? web pages?
Have you tried the Media Encoder H.264 presets? It does really good job of setting the correct Level and Profile for devices. (Although it uses Baseline level for iPhone, which is clearly capable of playing Main)
Also, Quicktime X Player "Save for Web…" automatically makes three h264 movies for iPhone WiFi, iPhone 3G, and Computer. As well as the HTML code to embed it into your website and to play back the correct version according to how the device is accessing your movie.
I will look into that. Any suggestions on where to find info on suggested bitrates for low and high res options?
