The best Youtube videos format
If you are running businesses and have things to teach or things to demonstrate, why not explore the opportunity of video sharing. A good video will get wide acceptance and recommendation, hence focus on quality video production, and do it in format that supported by Youtube user! We prefer to create our videos in High Definition HD format supported by Youtube and any other video sharing website. Not only that, online TV are getting more common too, and user from home are having TV set that can connect online and view videos and Youtube from TV set. That is another resolution that your web video need to support too. HD will be the best resolution, and we are selecting this high definition too.
No worry about video file size and viewer download speed or difficulties to stream the HD format at user side, as most video streaming site are now offering compression at their end. The HD video once uploaded to their site is converted into multiple formats, one is low resolution format and another is remaining as HD format. Users can choose their resolution and stream it smoothly without problem.
After choosing the HD file format, its time to choose the video compression format. This is the video file type that you will be creating. Either it’s going to be in:
- .MOV (Movie)
- .AVI (Audio Video Interface)
- .MPEG (Moving Piture)
- WMV (Windows Movie)
- 3GP (mobile supported video format)
- .FLV (Flash video format)
Choosing the right video compression format is important as not all video formats are viewable in user machines which can either be a Windows system, Macbook, iPad, mobile device or mobile phone. Most iPad device can’t view flash video format, this is thing you need to know before creating movie for your business. Some other format required plugin to be installed in order to view the video, including Quicktime and AVI. The safest video format will be the MPEG.
