What do you use to upload the video to youtube?

Post by Chamberly » Sun Jun 25, 2017 11:53 am

I'm wondering if those with good quality upload would share some details.

Right now I'm using Fraps, and Virtual Dub to compress the vid using the Xvid MPEG-4 Codec but with this set, youtube gives a weird effect with this and it doesn't look as good as the original. Which sucks. The texts are less visible, & the colors are a bit off, for the most part.

Is there any other codec I should use to set up in Virtual Dub? Or some other source?

You can dispense with all that and use this:


It's free and works fantastic. FPS takes no hits when it runs on my rig.

Cool, I'll give it a try.

Hoping it'll work on non-MSI products. :P

1 question, after recording, does it need to be compressed (like how frap files needed to be) or the file is already in a nice size to upload?

Well i Always use divx as compiling the videofarmats to another bether one.
If you wanna use a bether setup for your videofiles you can use the converter from divx ,and use mkv as your output file.
Then the quality must be much bether and sharper.
hope this will helps with your troubleshooting mp4 file format.

Btw virthualdub sucks its to complex and takes a long time for converting another file-format.
YouTube supports a very wide range of video-file formats.

Hey rjmno1!

As far I know, frap files I made are .avi files.

I did find out that a random software add-on I set up on my other pc does record into .mp4 though.

Will check it out too, thanks!

Afterburner is a controller for certain video cards that allows you to overclock, etc. However it doesn't *need* to do any of that to also be a fantastic video capture program. Tons of people use it for that reason only and don't connect it at all with their video drivers (I am one). It beats Fraps in every metric and I've not found another free product that even comes close to what you get with AB. I capture and go directly to YT without doing anything aside from normal edits if the video needs them. Compression, sync, color is always just fine once you choose your settings.

First an answer to the title
2 easy to use uploader tools
http://z-o-o-m.eu
https://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/d ... loader.htm

Whatever format you use, Youtube will re-compress it into MP4 and WEBM.
The colour changes are probably due to it being a 3rd generation recode.
If the colour information is converted into different types it can start to drift if the formats are not similar.
If you know what you are doing with tools like VirtualDub then you can possibly keep the colour info in the same format across different compressions, so all you get is degraded quality not colour.

Fraps saves in an uncompressed or low compression format to keep quality as a "lossless" format.
It is saved in a standard AVI container so almost all tools can recode it.
Many other formats can go inside an AVI such as DivX and Xvid, but these are ageing formats that most people who want quality have long abandoned. (DivX is a commercial project, XviD is a reverse-engineered free DivX)
eg. Traditionally a DVD would be split across 2 AVIs if you want a high quality DivX/Xvid copy, but saved as an H.264/AVC MP4 you can fit the whole DVD into 1 CD sized file and have full quality, plus chapter marks, subtitles and extra audio track.

H.264 MP4 is the standard video format of the Web, because it is smaller and can be streamed (unlike AVI)
For many years GFX cards have had the ability to decode/encode H.264 files in hardware (since DirectX 9), so you don't see any CPU load.
Good capture software will use your GPU to do the work and save directly as MP4 with no recoding.
MSI Afterburner "Predator" should use your GPU.
This means you should be able to capture at a high resolution and bitrate, and so not suffer as much when youtube recodes it.

Note: H.256 is gradually gaining more ground as the next replacement, since H.246 is already many years old.

Obviously you can use the web interface, but if you want to batch upload, or upload for many hours, then keeping a tab open in a browser using many hundreds of MB is not the wisest option if it can be done in tens of MB, and less risk of crashing or accidental closure.
Currently I am using Fileuploader to put 5GB of video data into my Mediafire drive, and when finished it will switch off the PC.

Not sure about the end quality these days, but if you use Twitch, you can directly upload the stream to Youtube as well from there.
Then again, the last time I used it myself was years ago, and the quality wasn't that good, but might be because I didn't really stream in FullHD either.

Well, in my case, I actually just use Nvidia Shadowplay.

It's got incredible quality and it's very time-saving.

Though I'm not completely satisfied with it. Should I have to increase the bitrate? (It is 50 mbps)
Or Should I have to increase the game brightness? (Though I prefer to keep brightness default always) :P


Well, here's a video example, I still consider it as great quality, before I utilized Fraps and I uploaded the entire (AVI) video without compressing it, it was bad quality, I guess for the 720p res.
Well this one here is 1080p60 with Nvidia Shadowplay.
If you look at the dark parts, it's got some weird squares probably by the degrading quality?
Rate me please, I also want to learn a bit more. :mrgreen:

By the way the framerate is a little variable so I guess i shouldn't worry of increasing more the quality because it already looks balanced to me, this is my opinion.

founded also some converting software called mediacoder together with nephew founded software called handbrake, you can handle any format and container video or audio files.
supporting almost any file types.
