Wow...i hope this encourages Google Video to upgrade on thier video quality...

I shot some VERY good looking video on a Panasonic AG-DVX100A...30p...well lit...the works! I edited it any all that good stuff them decided to post it on Good Video to show a friend... THE VIDEO LOOKED HORIBLE!!!!! I was amazed...it went from looking like a true high-quality, well shot piece of work to something thrown together by my nephew...
Point being...Google would benefit it they could only get something to make thier websites video quality a little more acceptable (to the eyes...)

Garrison Hayes,
What did you convert your file to when you uploaded it to Google? Because to get the best quality you would have to upload the full AVI file. Google’s videos look better when they are downloaded to your computer rather than the standard stream. Bought videos looks better than the free ones. When the video is sent to Google it gets compressed to 480X360.

Paulo,
The thing is, i know on another site i used for Video hosting the best format for your video was a ".mov" file...so i tried that in GV (Google Video), and as i stated earlier the video looked horrible...
You are actually the first person to tell my that ".avi" was the better format...DONT GET ME WRONG! i'm not saying you're wrong...just never heard that before...i'll look into it though. Thanks...

P.S. I was watching some "Dave Chappelle" skits and the quallity was pretty amazing...i'm taking it that Comedy Central sent thier videos straight to google so that they could upload them themselves...(this is what i'm assuming.)

The AVI file is straight from your camcorder without any compression. This is definitely the best way to send it to Google but the file will be around 13 gigs per hour. You would definitely need to keep your computer on for around a day uploading your footage depending on how long it is. Google does not except mailings. Even the major studios have to upload everything.

Quality Recommendations:

If possible, we suggest uploading the original source file. However, we recommend the specifications below for maximum quality and reasonable file size:

- MPEG4 (mp3 or mp4 audio) at 2 mbps
- MPEG2 (mp3 or mp4 audio) at 5 mbps
- 30 frames per second
- 640x480 resolution
- 4:3 frame
- de-interlace
Here is a video put together by a couple of my friends. The video was converted to h.264 before it was uploaded to Google.

Thats interesting...the only problem is a Edit in Avid Xpress Pro HD...meaning i dont have any AVI options...
I use sorensen squeeze for file conversion...no AVI option.
I'll defenitly play around with the mp4 option though.

MP4 is one of the file formats reccomended by YouTube for upload.

No More Google Video Downloading for Eau Claire School District Students

http://www.weau.com/home/headlines/4595657.html
I wonder if the students aren’t allowed to download from YouTube as well.

For a moment I thought they had ethical concerns.

It was a little better in the .MP4 and .MPG format, i'm still not a true believer in GV, but it was a step towards the better.

Thanks Paulo.
