YouTube Encoding: Locked & Reloaded

By Brian Gary @ Ken Stone

It's been just over a year since I wrote the "Encoding for YouTube Using Compressor" article for Ken's site and I first want to thank everyone from all parts of the world who sent in comments.

A considerable amount has changed with Internet media in the last year and not just with broadcasting video via YouTube. For example, the entire Flash Video landscape changed when Adobe announced the inclusion of H.264 in Flash Player 9. Now, you marry that with the YouTube/Apple announcement detailing the conversion of YouTube content to H.264 and you've got the ability to broadcast high quality video to computers, mobile devices, and television sets (via Apple TV). Wired magazine even wrote about this convergence last summer. Google is a key player here as well: a major player in fact. I mean, they own YouTube after all.
