Luisa shot some video of her parents making some wine with a grape press and wanted them uploaded. So I went through a few iterations of encoding+uploading to see what worked best.Pre-encoding files means you only upload about 1/10th as much, saving tons of time. I used ffmpegX to encode and eventually found that just using H.264 mp4 encoding at the original size worked best, giving me the much-coveted “Watch in high quality” option on YouTube.
I’m uploading the videos to my YouTube account now,
and then I’ll upload them to my Vimeo account,
which shows them at much higher resolution.
