Exporting for youtube

Danny_79 wrote on 3/13/2023, 12:15 PM

Hi! Not sure if this belongs in audio or video section, but... It's time to export a video conatining both audio and video to be uploaded at youtube. I know the audio should not be higher than 16 bit wave, so i have set my brickwall limiter to dither and noiseshape to that level. But, still there are so many exporting options so i honestly get confused. I found a site where this can be read: "YouTube recommends exporting your video either as the DVD-compliant MPEG-2 format or as an MPEG-4 using the H.264 video codec. For MPEG-2, YouTube recommends setting the audio codec to either MPEG Layer II or Dolby AC-3 with an audio bit rate of 128kbps. For MPEG-4, YouTube recommends selecting the AAC audio codec with an audio bit rate of 128kbps or higher" But i can't find any exporting options in vegas that matches any of this. What do you guys recommend? Thanx in advance m8s! PS, if it's any help, i am using windows 10 with an external focusrite audio interface.

Use the templates labeled Internet. MPEG-2 is not the best for uploading. Use MPEG-4

But i can't find any mpeg-4 options....only mp4 but that's not the same thing, or is it?

What version and build of Vegas Pro are you using? If you are using an old Movie Studio version, the export options are entirely different.

Going forward, start here for all peer support questions, thanks.

Try MagixAVC or if it's an older version of Vegas, SonyAVC. That will give you a mp4 file with h.264 (AVC) inside.

I do find magix AVC/AAC with many templates for mp4 but none of them says h.264

AVC is h.264.

MP4 is mpeg-4. (MP4 is the container file for MPEG-4, the standard for encoding video content.)

For uploading on youtube using the "Internet" template from MAGIX AVC/ACC MP4 it's already great, if you want you can still make a few adjustments.

But if you want to follow the stripe, everything youtube asks for. You can use voukoder which has more options.

Yes, those are exactly what you want for Youtube!

MPEG-4 is a Format. The .h264/AVC Codec is part of the MPEG-4 Format Standard.

MP4 is a Container.

To learn the similarities and differences between a Format, a Codec, and a Container, please read the links I offered you. Thank you and welcome to the forum.

Voukoder's out-of-the-box settings seem pretty good for YouTube. Before that I used to use the MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4 option, any of the Internet HD ones should do the job nicely. Voukoder produces a much smaller file though.
