Online Video Publishing: What Settings To Use To Get Highest Video Quality

Robin Good's curator insight, September 10, 2013 4:15 PM



If you need to get the best video quality possible for clips that you need to publish online, here is a good short guide to the key settings, codecs, bitrates and compression levels you should use to prepare your video, (thanks to the Vimeo support team).


While these settings have been thought out to optimize video publishing on Vimeo, you can utilize these references to prepare and save video files you may want to publish through other video services as well.



Very useful. Clear, simple. 8/10


Full guide: http://vimeo.com/help/compression 


N.B.: The page contains also a very comprehensive list of mini-video tutorials covering optimization settings for most any video editing and production software.

Nat Sones's curator insight, October 16, 2013 9:22 AM

Everything we do and say is story. All standard story structures ask the question 'who am I?' and try to make the answer interesting - or we stop caring. The rules here contain some great visuals and a lot of thought-provoking ideas. Go be provoked.
