What’s up everyone.
I recently purchased the AVermedia Live Gamer HD capture card, and with it’s recent firmware upgrade, I can record videos from my Xbox 360 at 1920x1080/30fps at a bitrate of up to 20,000 kbps.
My question is, is recording in this format completely overkill? YouTube themselves suggest recording 1080p footage 8,000 kbps, and I know if you submit a video of higher quality YouTube will just downgrade it to fit at or under 10,000 kbps.
I’ve heard two competing idea’s when it comes to this topic. Some say give YouTube the absolute highest quality video you can give them and let them do the work. Others say that by providing a video way above YouTube’s limits, quality is lost in the conversion process and you’re better off trying to exactly match YouTube’s specifications.
Does anyone have any experience on the topic that could give me some advice? Thanks.
