Canon EOS 550D - video on youtube

Hi all

Have bought my Canon 550D and am delighted with it. 1 issue - if I record a video on it in HD mode (1920 x 1080P) and upload same to youtube, it works in full 1080P HD like this - YouTube - Descent into Hannover Langenhagen Airport

But if I record 2 or more videos in the same HD mode (1920 x 1080P) and stitch them together in the ZoomBrowser software that came with the camera, even if I save them in the highest definition ZB allows then I only get the option to see them in 720P HD - YouTube - Hannover Rathaus 360

Can anyone hazard a guess / solution?

Thanks

Mark

No, not that I am aware of. It gives me various options re sound quality, definition etc but not file format.

PS - amazingly fast reply

It could be youtubes maximum file allowance.
1 HD video might be within the perimeters but two stitched together may get compressed.
Try uploading the two separately and numbering them.

Having looked at this again, I think the youtube mention was an inadvertent red herring by me, that has thrown us off the correct scent.

The real issue is not youtube at all. It is Canon's own ZoomBrowser EX software, which came with the camera. It has various steps that you go through when stitching movies and, when you reach step 5 'Save The Edit Results' it gives you, under 'Advanced Settings', the option to set the Image Size. The highest setting this goes to is 1280 x 720, whereas full HD is of course 1920 x 1080 (which is what I can upload - and watch - on youtube no problem if I don't stitch 2 movies together).

It therefore looks like this is limiting the resolution of the stitched-together video before it even reaches youtube and it seems incredibly odd that Canon would supply software with its camera that didn't allow the use of its full potential.

Any ideas?

Mark
