Video file formats ahoy

I knew there were a lot of them, but now I really know. If this video’s going to debut on YouTube, it needs to look the best it can–on YouTube’s terms. I’ve been reading guides about how to prepare videos for YouTube, and I think I have finally decided on a formula: .AVI (DivX), 640×480, 128k stereo mp3, 30 fps.

I’m glad that YouTube now includes the option for the viewer to watch videos at higher quality, and I’m making sure this video will have that option. I’ve done some tests, and the high quality versions look pretty awesome. Even if they’re scaled down.

So the plan is in motion. I have a rad video converter and I know which format I’m converting to. Now all I have to do is put the finishing touches on the video–level out the sound, mostly.

What is this?

This is a blog for a sex ed video, "Changing Sexpectations," created in Spring of 2008 by Mackenzie and Alyssa of Lewis & Clark College. It will eventually include embedded video and other goodies pertaining to the film.
