I'm not understanding if there are any settings provided in blender that allow me to meet these criteria. I can meet and understand the other recommended settings outside of the h.264 part below, so let's assume were dealing with an .mp4 container and aac audio codec. Whenever I upload an mp4 with h.264, aac audio, high quality, and the rest of the settings default it always tells me its not in a proper streamable format. It's a case where I'm worried it might be hurting quality, I need to improve quality where possible...which in youtube terms could mean making it smaller file size or meeting the low standardization it sets out.
Video codec: H.264
(1) Progressive scan (no interlacing)
(2) High Profile
(3) 2 consecutive B frames
(4) Closed GOP. GOP of half the frame rate.
(6) Variable bitrate. No bitrate limit required, though we offer recommended bit rates below for reference
(7) Chroma subsampling: 4:2:0
(1) Is there a setting to make sure it renders as 1080p rather than 1080i? or does it by default?
(2) I don't know what high profile refers to...? I handbreak they had a legacy setting called high profile....in blender is it referring to the crf value of 'high quality rendering in blender'?
(3) Blender has "keyframe interval = 18" by default. So do I change this to 2? or is this referring to something else?
(4) or is keyframe interval referring to this setting here? Let's say my fps was 23.93, do I do a value of 11 or 12 rounding up?
(5) Is this automatically applied in blender?
(6) Again, is there a setting to enable variable bit rate in blender? I assume its constant by default
(7) I'm guessing this is default in blender. It's referring to 8 bit colour depth in ur video right?
