Suggestions for compressing to china version Youtube

hi all,

I am based in china and if you may not have known, youtube is ban here. that means I can only use their version of youtube.

recently, they decided to change their service to be able to deliver HD just like youtube.

I read their requirements and could not really figure out which is the best solution for me. please advise

My machine:

Macbook 2 GIG Core 2 Duo
2 GIG Ram
Compressor 3.5.2
FCP 7.0.2


1. Canvas size >=640480。
2. Codec standard

* When bitrate >=1Mbps:
---H.264/AVC(Advance Video Coding)/AVCHD/X264 usually producing MP4,MKVfiles,some gives FLV files
---RV40/RealVideo 9, usually RMVB files
---WMV3/WVC1/WMVA/VC-1/Windows Media Video 9, usually WMV files

* when bitrate >=2Mbps:
---MPEG-4 Visual/Xvid/Divx, AVI,MP4 files

* when bitrates >=5Mbps:
---MPEG-2, MPEG/MPG/VOB files
---MPEG-1, MPEG/MPG files

Now my dilemma is, I try to do my bitrate below 2Mbps because i dun wanna use my laptop's limiting ability to generate a file for 6 hours just to post a HD in the web. however, I cant seem to use h.264 in compressor to generate a MP4 file. the only MP4 option in compressor is using the MP4 codec and I really think the quality sucks.

please advise.

thanks in advance
