Your camera came with a good one called "Picture Motion Browser", commonly called PMB. It has a drop down called "Share Publicly" that leaves your glorious 1080p files intact while it sends an optimized version to you online destination.

I use the Macintosh version of this converter: http://www.icoolsoft.com/hd-video-converter/ before uploading videos to YouTube or Vimeo But there are many similar converters out there.

These converter can reduce your 300 MB 1080p/60p video down to about a 60 MB 720p30p video for faster uploading.

I don't post many 1080p videos to YouTube or Vimeo because most people don't have fast enough computers or internet connections to play them.

Yes if you want to decrease the file size, using 30p and perhaps no more than half the bit rate of the original is good. YouTube doesn't allow over 30p although I really, really, really hope that's at least in the works. I mean they offer huge resolution sizes like for people who shoots in 4K but not 1080 or 720 60p.

Also, at least when you post 1080p videos, people will choose how high they want to view the quality depending on their connection so it's not like if you upload in 1080p, it will automatically stream in 1080p. It will still start at around 360p or 480p.

Anyway, if you don't mind spending more cash, one option to upload the biggest files possible and not worry about the speed is to increase the speed of your connection. Maybe an extra $10 per month can be a huge difference in speed.

1. "I don't post many 1080p videos to YouTube or Vimeo because most people don't have fast enough computers or internet connections to play them."

I agree with Paulo: One advantage of YouTube is that the user can choose what resolution to watch the video in. Given that is the case, then by uploading your 108060p file those who have a fast internet connection can see high quality and those that have a slow one can view it at lower resolution. So you should upload the highest quality file to Youtube.

2. "YouTube doesn't allow over 30p."

This is a bit misleading: I upload 108060p (28Mbps, 60fps, 1080) videos all of the time to Youtube, and there has been no problem. The point is: let Youtube convert the video (which they will do anyway). Just upload the highest quality file you can make with your camcorder.

OK, perhaps I didn't say it correctly but I meant they wont convert to higher than 30p.
