Aaargh, YouTube eeeevil - the funcrunch files

Oct. 22nd, 2007 11:33 pm Aaargh, YouTube eeeevil

So at zyxwvut's request, I'm trying to upload videos from last December's classic rock workshop to YouTube. Also since I'm not that purely altruistic, I'm trying to find a better/cleaner video format to use. So I followed YouTube's instructions and exported an MP4 file, 30fps, but now the damn A/V's out of sync. I know it suggested MP3 audio but I only had the option of AAC with my particular program in that particular format, and YouTube keeps "forgetting" my channel layout edits, and and and... screwit, I'm going to bed.

Here's a sample anyway for your amusement. (Free's "All Right Now")

Edit: OK, back to Flash encoding before uploading; I think the A/V sync problem is gone, but the quality still leaves much to be desired...

Is it the same issue in rival video sites like Google Video or DailyMotion?

To use a retail analogy, perhaps you don't need to be in Walmart - Target or Walgreens might be good enough to just share with friends. :-)

Actually I had been using my own site to host all multimedia content, but like moving my photos to LJ and then to Flickr, the promise of unlimited space has become increasingly appealing as I produce more content. And I'm not sure what will become of Google Video now that Google has bought YouTube...

In any case I tried a different frame rate this morning, 29.97 still didn't work, though both that and 30fps looked fine on my computer. So back using Flash for upload, or back to the drawing board... (I have found some tips on the web that may or may not help)
