    Hoping someone here can make a suggestion or two that will help me out with achieving the best results for my online instructional video's . I've tried numerous recommendations and while I seem to be getting closer to the desired results, I'm still falling short.

    I'll give you the Desired Goal, Scenario (Current Editing Process), and also what and me settings have been. Maybe this will help you to help me. I appreciate your help.

    DESIRED GOAL
    - Have videos on my site that will not have latency issues, play on multiple devices, and be clear (sharp) as possible

    The Scenario

    - I record using an iPhone 5S and do my edits in iMovie.
    - I export the movie out of iMovie as a h264 (shows on my desktop as a .mov file) to my desktop at 1280 x 720 (NOTE: It was suggested to me that exporting at this setting would be best and provide a high quality file that I could later convert to mp4 or Flash for streaming on my site)
    - I take this h264 file into HANDBRAKE and reduce the actual dimensions (656 x 368) down to the size I need for my website (Handbrake settings currently used that are giving decent results are shown below).
    - After conversion in Handbrake are complete, I upload to my EZS3 account and then post those videos on my site.

    HANDBRAKE SETTINGS
    - Please see the images shown

    What I would do? Just upload your 1280x720 h.264 iMovie export to YouTube or Vimeo and embed the video on your site. They automatically detect the user's browser and connection speed and send an appropriate version. You can control security, especially through vimeo+.

    Thanks SMRPIX!

    I guess my concern is this. I have a membership site for playing an instrument. Once people log into the members area (VIA PASSWORD), I think it would seem odd to them that they have to enter in a password (again) to make the video play. Thoughts?

    Vimeo+ has an option where a video can only be played through certain domains. So you can embed the video in your website and that's the only access route. No need to have it password protected by vimeo in that situation. I use this frequently.
