The Perfect YouTube Video Settings


Matt suggests using Apple Quick Time Pro for producing videos for YouTube and other video sharing websites.

Don’t use Windows Movie Maker for YouTube since it uses Windows Media codecs which are inferior to the Quicktime formats - MP4 or MOV.

Shoot at an aspect ratio of 4:3 and use a encoding bitrate of 700-1000 kbps for best looking videos on YouTube. Link.
