    Gopro workflows to Youtube?

    Hi, I was wondering if some of you could share your Gopro workflow to youtube. I've been pretty disappointed with the quality of my videos and even more so after seeing this on youtube.

    GoPro: Combing Valparaiso's Hills - YouTube

    What do I need to do to get the best video quality? I'm currently using Cineform Studios and Windows Movie Maker. I also have Adobe Premiere but it's a little much for my skill level.

    Particularly I'd like to know which output setting work the best (Currently exporting to 720 @ 9625kbs and 59.94fps)

    Also what software works the best?

    My workflow is pretty simple.

    1) Copy mp4 files to my computer.
    2) Open up Movie Maker and load my files (I skip Cineform Studios because I think it causes Movie Maker to crash)
    3) Edit and export to the settings I posted.

    When you're watching it on you-tube, do you see the little HD icon showing?

    It's Movie Maker who ruins your video. Check encoding settings and make sure to use high enough bitrate. Movie Maker may not let you do so.

    I have lately played with GoPro Studio. When starting to export (encoding), use Vimeo or custom setting and set bitrate to 15Mbps for 1080p and 25Mbps for 1440p. Files will be bigger and uploading takes more time, but quality get improved over default settings.

    Thanks for the suggestions I'll try them out.
