  • YOUTUBE FROM PREMIERE WITH 3 OR 4 CHANNELS OF AUDIO

    Posted by Robert Galloway on June 10, 2024 at 5:21 pm

    I’d like to upload a quicktime mov that has been exported from Premiere with 4 separate channels to a public platform like youtube. Then someone could download and put into premiere and it would have the channels still separated… Obviously, I can do 2 channels left and right…but hoping to have more than the 2 channels…. If anyone knows this is possible, would love to hear! Thanks.

    Hey Robert,

    Not sure what the purpose is for uploading more than 2-channels, unless you are going surround sound?

    You’ll be better off with the master still on YouTube, but offer a link in info to a Google-drive folder, dropbox or similar to download from.

    Please note that Adobe has just suggested that they want to ascertain copyright over your work created using some of their tools. Still a bit early, but from reactions seen elsewhere, the end is near for Adobe professional tools.
    In short: Adobe management has lost the plot.

    But that won’t change your file with 4 audio tracks, or one video with stereo mix and additional Audio Wave Stems to download. Don’t forget your sync-blobs.

    +1 on Mads answer – best to use a file hosting platform for the purpose you describe, which maintains the integrity of the original file.

    Youtube re-encodes all video that you upload, so whatever the file format, however many channels or metadata you have, it all gets normalised, so all audio channels get merged into a single stereo stream.

    Also, downloading Youtube videos isn’t really good practise – officially it’s against their policies and although there are sites that will allow you to download youtube videos, generally it works by recording the input stream. By the time you’re video has been uploaded, re-encoded and normalised, streamed, recorded and downloaded again, you’re going to lose a lot of quality and detail.
