Anyone know of some good programs where I can compress a video file size from 1.22GB to about 950MB so I can upload it onto YouTube? I want to keep the same framerate and quality, just a little smaller file size.
O.o The video is like 2m30s...'Any Video Convertor
They have a free version - go for that. It;s kinda hidden away....
And 950MB? That will take a year. That's the size of a two hour long video.....
Yeah, I have Virtual Dub. I watched a tutorial on YouTube on how to compress the size. I got it to 191MB but a little quality was lost, not much however. I'm uploading the video now, I'll post it when it's finished
You are not using the right codecs. A full 1080p 2hours movie is about 6gb when encoded in x264.That'd be a pretty low quality video. I have an 39MB version of the video I made but the quality is meh. It looks good to me at 191MB. But of course the original 1.22GB version was best.
Edit: YouTube is so stupid. I cannot upload anything. I tried multiple times and it isn't working. Guess I'll have to put the low quality version on Metacafe or something.
The video is in .avi. I converted it to .mpeg4 but the quality just completely got lost. Can anyone recommend a good program for conversion? I think converting it might make it work when uploading it, as .mpeg4 is a suggested codec by YouTube.You are not using the right codecs. A full 1080p 2hours movie is about 6gb when encoded in x264.
You can have up to 1GB now, to allow for HD I suppose. But it's still a 10 minute limit.I think YouTube's limits are 10 minutes or 100Mb. Bram put me on to Blip.TV and there doesn't seem to be a limit there so I suggest trying that.
I must admit though that it does seem very large for a 3 minute video.
