Topic: Soundslides to YouTube conversion: one example

I'm looking for other people's feedback on what settings they use to turn their Soundslides into Youtube and Vimeo versions:

Here is the original of my Obama inaugural slideshow in all its crispness:

Here is the YouTube conversion, using just the basic video export setting from Soundslides as a Quicktime .mov file without tinkering with any of the custom settings in Quicktime Pro:

Any thoughts on improving the quality from anyone? Has anyone tinkered with the export settings in Quicktime Pro and gotten better results?

I just put my "Shanghai Symphony" on Vimeo.
The MPEG4 conversion was made by Soundslides (http://video.soundslides.net/converter/)

The vimeo conversion:

The "Original" soundslides slideshow:

I made some change before the conversion, because I had too many portrait slides for a video.
I'm happy with the result.

But now I'm waiting for a HD conversion...

Thanks Dehesdin for posting your results.  It's amazing how much better Vimeo looks compared to YouTube. 

I'm working on an HD version of the converter this summer.

Re: Soundslides to YouTube conversion: one example

I'm sorry if this is something obvious, but I don't see an export to quicktime function in Soundslides. Is there a newer version with this functionality?

I'm using a demo of Sounslides Plus version 1.9.2.

EDIT: Wait - is the first poster referring to Soundslides' (the company) service of converting files? If so, my bad....thought there was a function in the application I was missing.....

Hi Scott.

We have an online video converter, which is free.  You upload your slide show and it creates an MP4 file you can download.  Here's the link:

The converter only works with slide shows created from registered versions however.

Soundslides and Soundslides Plus don't export to video, but there is a free online converter available for registered users here. Here is more information on using the converter:

Right - thanks guys. I had already posted the question, before I realized that's what was being referred to. I initially thought maybe I was missing something in the app!

Thanks again.
