Handbrake Tutorial // How To Get FAST Upload Times On Your Videos

in dlive •  2 months ago

Hi Friends!

I used to sit and watch my videos spin and upload for hours. I would get so frustrated at how long it took to get my videos up. I have to give major kudos here to both @captainbob and @alphasteem who pushed me in the direction of using handbrake to compress my video files and make them web optimized.

At first, I thought that simply converting my videos to 720p would be enough - but after using Handbrake to optimize my videos - I couldn't believe the difference. Videos that used to take 2-3 hours to upload, were now taking 15 minutes.

Hows the quality you ask? I can honestly hardly notice a difference - but check it out for yourself and play with different settings.

This is a very basic tutorial - but as I show you in the video - there are many options for those who would prefer to dig into some of the more complex offerings of this program.

I hope you guys found this tutorial helpful! If you have any questions on using handbrake - shoot them below and I'll do my best to help! <3

XO, Lea

Ps... I will be on the road to Toronto soon! If you are at all thinking about attending - just do it!! It is so worth it. Besides - both me and my sister @maryjaney are going - so maybe you'll have a surprise appearance in a Steem Sister Show episode.

Awesome - thanks for including this @felix.herrmann!!

Thanks for that! I haven't yet tried video uploads here, but that's good information to have... I'm really most familiar with uploads to Facebook, and they tend to be pretty fast, even in HD. Bookmarking for reference...

·

Yes - video up load times here on Dtube/DLive can be a real pain. Glad this will be helpful to you in the future! It would be awesome to see you post some videos! :)

No worries!

@coruscate OMG this is a flippin' LIFE SAVER. WOWZA! I just downloaded and used the tool. Then went to upload and holy cow was it fast! So glad you shared this because I was like man, there has to be a better way to get these darn videos to upload faster. Good grief what a difference this has made. I'm going to have to do a review video on this tool now. Excellent stuff. Huge shoutout also to @captainbob and @alphasteem for sharing your wisdom :) :)

·

Yeah man! Glad to do it.

·

Yaaay I'm glad this has been so helpful! I almost fell of my chair the first time I tried this and saw the difference. It makes a huge difference and I'm glad this video tutorial helped you find out about it!

Thanks for sharing I!

My video is actually converting as I type :-)

·

Yaaaay that’s awesome!!

Anything that can save time is something I’m keen to try!

·

Oh this has been huge for me! Sometimes it can still take a while to load - but that's usually because there are so many people uploading to Dtube at the same time - not because the video itself is taking too long.

Most of the time though - I can get things uploaded super fast. :)

·

Yes for sure me too😊

That looks super useful. You didn't mention a cost, so does that mean it's free to download? :0

·

Oooh yes - I should have mentioned that! Yes, it is totally free. :)

Yes! @Captainbob turned me on to this trick and I do it for everything-even my really short videos! Such a great tip!

·

ooh it makes such a difference! I do it for my short videos too... it's awesome. :)

@captainbob really started a movement of exuberant Handbrake fans here!

·
·

@coruscate Seriously. He's kind of my hero that way. Lol!

Handbrake is amazing. I had to find it on my own with Google after months of audio issues. I just actually made a video talking about this like 3 days ago... Great minds think alike! haha.. neat thing about handbrake is it actually can fix audio issues when recording with iphones.. the videos need to be rendered through handbrake after the "constant frame rate" setting has been selected. But of course your video is about compressing.. and not this.. just in case you ever had an audio issue it works great for fixing those issues as well. Best free download I ever got was Handbrake.. Hands down! @coruscate

·

Oh no way! I'll have to go check out your video too!

Thanks for the tip on audio issues too! I personally haven't had any audio issues yet - but that's really great to know.

Great advice, @coruscate. Upload speeds are a bit of a problem still so this is a good way to help.

·

Yay, glad you found it helpful! I used to get sooooo frustrated with how long everything took. I hope this helps!

Wow, this is amazing @coruscate
I think I should probably opt for handbrake to optimize my future videos too...
Thanks for sharing and blessed day

·

Awesome! I'm so glad you found this helpful @brayan256!

It really is a great program to use and I use it all the time to upload videos here.

·

That's awesome to hear!

Lol 3 hours later I just posted my Dlive video opening my 5 Booster Packs from @littlescribe ! heres the link if you want to check it out:

yes, yes, yes!! That's awesome! I'll have to go check it out!

·
·

Thanks! hope you like it, going to sleep now, see you later!✌👍😴

When I upload a video to @dtube , I think the uploadtime is ok. Never longer then a half an hour. My videos arent that long though so thats probably the reason. It does take ages for dtube to render and make it playable. Does handbrake do solve that problem too ?

Thanks for the tutorial!!

·

Great question @verhp11! I have noticed that my videos are playable much faster - but I'm not sure if this is true for everyone! Handbrake is a free software - so i guess it wouldn't hurt to try and see how it works for you. :)

·
·

Thank you very much. I will give it a try when I am back home. Still enjoying a great holiday in beautiful Crete :)

Thanks !!! I am going to try this foooor sure! :)

Wow so nice and amazing.

·

thanks so much...this is helping me get past not knowing why the hell my dtube won't upload
