Convert YouTube to MP4 and MP4 to YouTube on Mac (Mountain Lion included)
I have a cam – a Nokia N95 actually – that shoots directly to mp4. Results are pretty descent and certainly good enough for web video. But when I upload it to YouTube, it turns into a slideshow. I'd post the original video's specs but I'm not sure how to get them from mp4 video (can't download YouTube to MP4)…
