if you want to UPLOAD a movie to youtube, here's what I recommend:

for HD:
"movie to quicktime movie" (.mov) or "movie to MPEG-4" (.mp4)
codec: h.264
Data rate: 13,000 kbits/sec
frame rate: native to the project
key frame rate: 24
audio: mp3 or aac
audio bitrate: 128-160 kbits/sec (or 80/96 if audio isn't too important)

and for SD:
all the same as above except NTSC pixel resolution 720x480 / 720x540
and video bitrate 8000
