Youtube supports 60fps (it seems you have to use Chrome, not IE, to be able to be able to choose to see the 60FPS rendering, otherwise you just get 30 or less)

But all the stuff I upload has terrible performance, like only 10 frames per second, and 85% of frames of dropped. At 720/60FPS the videos work fine.

My cable provider is one of the best in nation and I usually get 50 megabits per sec. I have an mid/upper graphics card that can do full screen 1080 at 60fps with minor frame drops according to VLC video player so I don't think anything in my system is slowing things down.

Does anyone have advice on what codec and options work best for Youtube, 60FPS, using the Sony Vegas 12 or Sony Movie Studio HD 12?
