Upload Canon EOS 500D 1080P Video to YouTube for Mac users
  • Last week, I joined my best friend’s birthday party and recorded some marvelous fragments with my new Canon EOS 500D DSLR Camera. After returning home, I would like to upload them to YouTube for sharing with more friends. When searching information about Canon EOS recorded videos and YouTube accepted videos, I notice that the best way is to convert EOS 500D 1080p Video to 720p MP4 for uploading.
  • As we know, Canon EOS 500D Camera shoots videos in 1080p HD MOV Video recording at 20fps encoded with H.264 video codec and Linear PCM audio codec. However, YouTube accepts HD Videos in 720P(1290 x 720 with 16:9 aspect ratio). And the best video fomats for YouTube are MP4 and FLV which can maintain minimum filesize and best video quality as below showing:
    Best Video Quality + Decent filesize => MP4 video with H.264 video codec and AAC LC audio code
    Good Video Quality + Best Reduced filesize => FLV video
    So next I am going to share my experience about how to convert EOS 500D 1080P video to 720p MP4 for uploading to YouTube with the best Canon EOS 500D Converter.
