Re: Best Codec for youtube videos?

YouTube (newest) recommended settings are:
  • H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 format
  • 640x480 (SD) or 1280x720 (HD) for 4:3 & 16:9 aspect ratios.
  • Frame rate should be the same as original video
  • Sampling rate: 44.1KHz for MP3/AAC audio

Log into your youtube account, scroll down to you see your account list, click on video playback quality, then set to "I have a fast connection. Always play higher-quality video when it's available." then save settings.

To ensure your videos will be available in high quality, you should make them progressive.

Refer to this help : Learn More : Optimizing your video uploads - YouTube Help

H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred.

The Youtube support page lists MPEG-4 (MP4) as a codec. For uploading i recommend following settings:

MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format
320x240 resolution
MP3 audio
30 frames per second

and for viewing videos I use xvid & it seems to look good.
