You Tube 1st Attempt

So I posted my first video on You Tube. It's Antonio on Christmas morning -- check it out:


I did everything you told me to do, Paul and Adolph -- imported it into iMovie, cut out some bad camer-work, saved it as a compressed file, and saved it as a streaming web file (was that right?). I'm really happy I got it up, but the quality seems really bad compared with the original. Are there any tricks to getting higher res uploads?

Also, how do I get the movie player icon to come up like Sara did on her spring morning clip?


  • Wow, footprints ... that's elaborate. All that stuff and the first thing he goes for is the santa claus cookie pulled off of the bike...

    i agree that the christmas concept seemed overwhelming, but the excitement was there. i liked the reaction to the squishy ball.

  • Hey Amber,
    With YouTube, there isn't a reason to save it as "streaming," just make sure that it is under the 100 meg/10 minute limit. In fact, I think you get better results the less you compress it, because YouTube does their own compression when they munge it into their format (flv). With iMovie, try the CDROM setting of export and upload that. I think that the email setting is actually smaller and of lower frame-rate than YouTube uses.

    To "embed" the film into the blog, just take the gobledy-gook underneath the URL and paste that in the blogger window.

    Teh footprints were a really neat touch! It was very funny that he was more interested in the balloon than the tricycle.
