    Widescreen Export for Youtube (Sorenson Squeeze 4.1)

    Hi there,

    My apologies if this has already been answered somewhere.  I am currently trying to export my video clip into MPEG4 format for use in Youtube.

    The video is 16:9, however when I export them through Squeeze 4.1 the video is squashed up in 4:3.  I tried using the standard MPEG4 codec and the AVC codec but both did the same thing.  I can't seem to find a 16:9 in the codec settings.  Is there something I am doing wrong here?

    Thanks in advance

    Josh

    Just change your destination size to one that is in the proportions of 16:9 with square pixels e.g. 1024 x 576 or 1280 by 720.

    I'd suggest using an mpeg4 at 1280 by 720 even if it's not HD video as that will then be recognised as "HD" by YouTube.

    regards
