    Hello,

    I really need help to find a good system on how to make videos upload to youtube easier. I record 60 fps gameplay at 1080p from my PC using FRAPS then I take those into an editor and move them, cut them, etc. Once done editing, I render them. My 30 min vids are always 4-5gb! My 8 min are 1gb! I've tried to compression them by handbrake and virtual dub and the absolute best I could get is 4.5gb to 3.1 gb. I need help because in the future I will be making 1-1.5 hour long vids at 1080p at 60 fps.

    Please could someone please give me help on this?

    Thank you

    First of all, since the goal is the YouTube audience, there is no point in capturing at 60fps

    FWIW --- after editing, I compress the video to either Xvid or WMV3 (with constant quantizer = 3, quantization type = MPEG for Xvid), leave the audio uncompressed (2.0 at 44.1kHz), and mux to an AVI file. You might want to try H.264 compression with very-complex settings, but remember, if your captures are naturally "difficult to compress", then even H.264 won't be able to compress very much without a noticeable loss of quality

    If you have no objections, resizing to 1280x720 will require less bitrate, and therefore, a smaller filesize.

    Either lower the bitrate or raise the CRF or Q number. Maybe you mean to say, "the absolute best I could get with good quality is 4.5gb to 3.1 gb?

    And as El Heggunte says, since YouTube is going to reduce it to 30fps anyway, you might as well do it yourself first.

    I need help because in the future I will be making 1-1.5 hour long vids at 1080p at 60 fps.
    Just what the world needs, more YouTube gaming videos.
