Hey, I dug your video up on Youtube as well to have a look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZObwEOJFco -- looks pretty interesting to say the least!
Just out of curiosity, do you have the original file on your computer still? If so, try playing it with Quicktime (or whatever media player you have) -- is the text stutter in the original file? I suspect not because Vimeo and Youtube have acted differently.
These weird glitches that usually occur in the first ~10 seconds are usually caused either by not selecting "Prepare for Fast Start" or by having the wrong container. Double-check that you are exporting to Quicktime Movie (.mov) and that you are using H.264 compression.
I do have the original files on my computer, and they all play fine on quicktime and other video players. I will select "Prepare for Fast Start" this time (I was definitely using H.264 and .mov).
make sure check "Prepare for Internet Streaming" and select Fast Start.
Looking at your blinking text, that doesn't appear to have anything to do with your export settings, but rather whatever text generator you used. It looks like maybe you used LiveType and had a fade-in, and then copy/pasted it a bunch of times so that the fade in got duplicated?
Also, be careful using copyritten music on the internet without the rights to do so.
I used regular text with a cross dissolve in/out (which I do a lot without these issues). I just deleted the text and re did it, I will upload a new video and see what's up.
I redid the video (deleted the text and remade it) and the new vid is fine (without stuttering).
For the sake of creating a new thread, does anyone know if transcoding my footage to ProRes in Compressor is worth it or not if I am not doing major color correction? I don't want to have to save the large files even though I can still reference them to the original .movs in case something ever happens and i need to redo footage. It's just the taxing of the hard drive space without seeing improvement in render time.
Thanks for everything again
