Hi there. I am a blogger and  i normally make videos with my flip video camera and want to upload it on YouTube but a problem i have is that I use handbrake to compress my videos and i normally select web optimized and 350 as the bitrate to compress it to so that it makes it much smaller cause it takes a while to upload it if I leave it the normal size.

What is a good size to use for video compression and posting on the net. I don't want it too big and I don't want the quality to be too bad either???

Is the video on the harddrive?
what format?
Mac or windows 7?<< this would have saved time if provided.
Just you say handbrake ,
Mac windows has imovie
Reduce video size & YouTube upload time with Handbrake [HD]

windows 7 has windows live movie maker which publishes to youtube
Convert it to either wmv or mp4 with a video scale of 320 x 240

You do realize whatever you do Youtube will convert it to flash

Please refer to the guides I provided, remember the higher resolution the bigger the size,   audio plays an important roll with how big the file is, if it uses wav or ac3 try using mp3 to reduce the size leaving the mp4 as is

Keep it in mp4 and upload as is if you don't want to lose any quality, youtube will convert it to flash anyway
For me>
Even with adsl2 @ 2 megs a sec a video in mp4  320 x 240  @ 300 megs in size takes around an hour maybe more maybe less depends on the heavy traffic.
Yotube is really big world wide so there is some time high traffic. Peak time.
