Is it necessary to deinterlace videos for Vimeo, YouTube before upload? Check this article and you will get some hints.
I'm having a bit of a weird issue: Have some 1080i videos from a Sony camera, my confusion is should I deinterlace video before I upload to Vimeo? Looking around for any decent tutorials, I got the solid answer.
Well, interlaced video must be correctly deinterlaced for web video delivery including Vimeo, YouTube, etc. If you're outputting 1080i, deinterlace and resize to 1280×720 before you upload. If your final outcome is a progressive medium (web, HDTVs, Blu-Ray, etc.) you might want to deinterlace before you even start editing. Below is the tutorial on how to deinterlace video for YouTube, Vimeo.
