    Hello mates...

    I have a HD video and going to upload it in one of my YT channels. It is a 30 minute video and its size is "350MB".
    Do you think that people can easily watch such a video with such a size? Or you recommend to reduce its size?

    Thanks

    YT video is automatically be available in different resolution. So if someone sees your video in 360p, it won't be 350MB, but less.

    YT converts all videos to its internal format for different resolutions. I uploaded 2GB videos.

    I think YT will convert it into flv anyway, so if your connection is quick enough, don't worry about it.

    FLV is a container file format. Seems YT uses H.264 as a video compression format.
