To create a youtube or dailymotion video, you can easily follow the steps below. You will have to learn a lot more about CINELERRA-GG to take full advantage of its capabilities and make some really special videos, but this is just to get a start and to see the possibilities.
Youtube will allow the upload of the resulting rendered file as named. However, Dailymotion requires that the file be named with an acceptable extension so you must rename the output file to have the extension of .webm instead of .youtube
There are currently 6 specific variations within the ffmpeg (file format) / youtube (file type) for different video options. You see these when you click on the wrench to the right of the word Video and then the Compression down arrow in the Video Preset window. The first 3 are based on Webm/Vp91 and contain basic comments of usage and where to find more information.
The first 3 below, plus any of the VP9 files under the file type of webm are the recommended options to use because they are freely usable in any circumstance.
|sd.youtube||Standard Definition use with default audio/Opus stereo.youtube|
|hd.youtube||High Definition “ “|
|uhd.youtube||Ultra High Definition “ “|

Alternatives based on h264 and for non-commercial use are listed below. For Dailymotion, these must be renamed to have a different extension of .mp4 instead of .youtube before uploading.
|sd_h264.youtube||Standard Definition – must change to audio stereo_with_h264.youtube|
|hd_h264.youtube||High Definition - “ “|
|uhd_u264.youtube||Ultra High Definition - “ “|
These same steps have been verified to work for creating Dailymotion videos – however, the created files must be renamed before uploading to change the youtube extension to webm instead for Dailymotion.
