    So, I decided to record some stuff on the Wii.
    Recording went all good. But the size was friggin BIG -.-

    No matter what I did, I coudnt get it stretched on youtube. Yes, its set to 16:9 still not full screen.

    Anyway, what video editing software should I use? Recommend me some settings aswell.
    This 1:30 minute video was well over 200MB [​IMG].


    Just for testing purpose lol.

    Theres a youtube tag that stretches videos... I dont remember it though.

    I first used Sony Vegas since it was very easy to use, then I switched to Adobe Premier CS5.

    Use Windows Movie Maker and that 200 may become 15 mb.

    There is more to it than saving it as WMV -.-

    Set your recording settings to widescreen 720x480. In your editing software make sure your settings are widescreen and maybe crop out the borders. If all else fails in your youtube tags add yt:stretch=16:9

    Set your resolution to 854x480 that will give a better widescreen effect than 720x480. If your editing software has the option set the pixel format to 1.33333. IN addition to yt:stretch=16:9 there is yt:crop=16:9 and yt:zoom=16:9

    you can always use a separate audio capture if your recorder has it and then adjust via Sony Vegas then export it out.

    You guys need to understand the wmv is a container and not a codec.

    Well, that video did not stretch no matter what I did.
    Like I said before, the oblivion recording from before stretched using the crop.16:9 tag.

    Any idea why this one isnt changing?

    Just looked it up, you might want to try to add this to the beginning of the video tags all at once, I've seen several people confirming that it worked:

    Code:
    yt:stretch=4:3 yt:crop=16:9 yt:quality=high
    As for a good video codec, try saving to *.avi with the xvid codec, for me it cuts back the file size a lot while retaining a lot of quality. For audio I always save it to the highest PCM settings, it doesn't really make a large file size for me.
