CF and Vimeo

Question what is the best way to take a CF master and output it to a file that Vimeo will play smoothly? I have tried several wasy and vimeo wants to play it jerky? I know its not my Internet speed bacause some other videos on Vimeo play smooth as silk..

What setting and what toll would you reccomend?

Thanks Bruce

Personnaly I reencode all my vimeo videos to H264 beforeuploading and they plays beautifully. I am using 2 pass VBR encoding. for 1920X1080 footage, I set the average bitrate to 10000 kbps, for 720p, 5000 kbps is usually enough.

Hi Jean,

What software are you using to convert to H264.
Thanks

You are correct they play beautifully!! I can not get mine to play smooth?

Hi Bruce,

The best results I get is using tmpgenc h.264 at 5000 bitrate - 720-30p.

However, I prefer youtube (which is free) because I get MUCH smoother results. Now, having said that, I do not have Vimeo plus so that performance could be better.

Good luck!

Simon

I always encode H.264 1280x720 p 23.976 and get smooth results. I use 7Mb/s VBR 1 pass, although Vimeo will compress it more than that. Also, play full screen, sometimes the 24p in some web browsers isn't perfectly smooth (Opera has this issue, Firefox is fine.)

My last few 48 Hour entries encoded this away.

(this one was encoded 1280x532 for scope.)

In CS5, there's a Vimeo HD preset that works great. When you choose H.264 as Format, the presets become visible in the drop-down box below. I believe they are basically the settings David mentions above, but you can do it with one click.

Obviously going to 24p will always look jerky -- that's the point of 24p.
