Q: When I upload a video to YouTube, the quality get really bad. So what is the best video format for YouTube uploading? MP4? AVI? FLV?
YouTube is the largest video-sharing website that millions of people will watch videos, register accounts and upload videos to every day. Previously, we discussed about how to download videos from YouTube playlist. This time, let's uncover all basics of YouTube uploading formats and settings. If you are not using the best YouTube upload video settings including pixel, resolution, dimension, video formats, etc., you will probably encounter the same issues listed above.
Recommended YouTube Video Pixels
YouTube's default video size is 320 pixels wide by 240 pixels tall; some videos are available in the slightly larger 480-pixel X 360-pixel size. It is smaller than the standard YouTube video screen – video of this size are automatically expended to fill the screen. But on the whole, 320x240 is fairly good compromise which suits the different player sizes well enough. I recommend you shoot and upload your videos at 640 X 480 resolution so that your video won't become blocky and grainy when convert it to size smaller than 640 X 480 resolution.
Note: A pixel is the smallest element of a digital image, used to measure image resolution. A standard definition television picture is 640 pixels wide by 480 pixels tall; a high-definition picture, at minimum, is 1280 pixels wide by 720 pixels tall.
