They are migrating to H.264. That's how the AppleTV can view YouTube videos. I would suggest giving H.264 encoding a try since it's higher quality/file size than many others.

You're right. I just uploaded another short using H.264 codec and the results were better than mpeg4. Not perfectly clear, but a marked difference. Thanks to all for the advice.

BTW, your you tube stuff looks great, so I must be doing something very wrong. Need to get that resolved at some point.
The Sennheiser MKH418S with a shock mount is worth the money, short of a lav mic on your subject it's about the next best thing.

Thanks about the YouTube stuff, I think I'm using H.264 as well and am happy with the results.

Thanks Ben, I obviously do need a mic that is more focused based on the environment I most shoot in. what shock mount did you choose?

Actually I use the one that came with my Rode mic, the SM3 shockmount. I don't use the shockmount on the camera.

One simple trick to almost double the quality of your youtube videos is to drop the frame rate by half.

I think the handheld really knocks a bit out more than anything else. Some of my students' work is uploaded to youtube and I instructed them never to move the camera. It was uploaded at 640*480 XviD MP3 audio through FFmpegX.

I uploaded some home vids of my duaghter using the same compression scheme and it looked noticably blockier. Nothing I've ever shot handheld has ever looked any good on Youtube.
