Hey odin, just wondering if you captured it as a .wmv as well or captured it as .h264 or something else? Quality looked really good.  What rendering settings do you use if you don't mind telling?

Awesome, thanks. So if I do capture COD games, would it still be best to capture and render at 60fps? I thought it would not matter since youtube drops it down to 30fps anyway.  Thanks a lot.

my experience is that it does matter, but i cannot tell you why
60 fps will look smoother on youtube even if its locked to 30 fps

what id advice you is to get a colourfull 10 seconds clip captured
render it in different settings and upload them to youtube, then you can decide if it is better :)
thats what i did, uploaded that clip like 20 times in different settings
