You Tube’s Video Ratios

When making videos you always have to keep the end results in mind. If you’re using several templates in paint, always use compatible sizes below.  All videos and pictures should ideally be the same ratio.  It’s easier said than done. 

Your camera or video recorder hopefully records in 16 x 9. It may record in 4 x 3 ratio.   Pictures are easier to convert to a compatible ratio.  Video, is not so easy.

You Tubes player’s display is a ratio of 16 x 9.

List of allowed sizes :

426 X 240          240p

640 x 360           360p

854 x 480           480p

1280 x 720         720p

1920 x 1080       1080p

Suggested sizes for most people :

640 x 360           360p

854 x 480           480p

1280 x 720         720p

The p in 360p stands for pixels. 

One software manufacturer may be stated in pixels, another may be in ratios. Notice all the 16 x 9 ratios are multiples.  The higher the ratio also means higher resolution.

Start with 720p.  Experiment.  720p is a good high quality video.
