I MOVIE streaming settings

by hamishmac100 / November 9, 2012 5:37 AM PST

Hi there I was hoping to get some help on what may be a streaming/compression issue. I'm doing online videos with a Canon Legria HF M41 which is CMOS and not truly progressive.
They're basically guitar lessons and while they appear fine through iMovie and Quicktime and also on my You Tube channel, the strings appear broken, jagged, artifacty, dashed i.e. not right in other words, when I stream them from the server (Blue Host ) through to Acrobat X Pro documents. The size and quantity require streaming and not embedding.
I'm using iMovie (with Quicktime Pro export options) and exporting using Movie to Quicktime Movie.
The Options.. settings i've got are as follows :

Compression: H.264
Quality : High
Frame Rate: 30
Bite Rate: 128kbits/sec
Encoding mode: multi-pass
Dimensions: 960 + 540 (Current)
Deinterlace Source Video = Clicked on
The Prepare for Internet Streaming box is clicked and Fast Start is selected.
The Data Rate : automatic
Optimised for : Download.

I'm wondering if it should be set to Optimised for : Streaming . With some adjustments in the kbits/sec box ?
I think the problem seems to lie somewhere between my compression settings and Acrobat X Pro or do I need to be thinking about a video camera update.
Any help would be appreciated.

Out of my Depth!!!!

The clue is.

The clue is "Acrobat X Pro documents."

A quick look at adobe forums finds folk asking this question. It's their product so it appears they need to fix it.

Second idea. About the deinterlace.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / November 13, 2012 5:29 AM PST

The 540 line video seems odd to me but this could be PAL. But that's not my thought here. The deinterlace should be toggled off for a test run as each field is 1/50 second off in time and you might be better off with accepting the interlacing.
