    Using a Flip MinoHD to film some video and using Sorenson Squeeze to compress down. Using the .flv compression at 1mb and it looks like shit when uploaded to Ytube.

    Anyone good with video compression and can tell me how to keep the HD quality of the vid and still compress it down?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't get good results with x264, YouTube reconverts it and fucks the quality, but if you compress with Xvid or Divx, when YouTube reconverts it, the videos don't lose too many quality. I always got better results with Xvid than with x264, except the fact that x264 is a much better codec.

    Video Resolution
    Recommended: 1280 x 720 (16x9 HD) and 640 x 480 (4:3 SD)
    There is no required minimum resolution - in general the higher resolution the better and HD resolution is preferred. For older content, lower resolution is unavoidable.

    Bit rate:
    Because bit-rate is highly dependent on codec there is no recommended or minimum value. Videos should be optimized for resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate rather than bit rate. Frame rate The frame rate of the original video should be maintained without re-sampling. In particular pulldown and other frame rate re-sampling techniques are strongly discouraged.

    Codec
    : H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred.

    Audio Codec: MP3 or AAC preferred Sampling rate 44.1kHz Channels 2 (stereo)
