Best settings for exporting HDV to web
I'm exporting HDV videos (from my HV30) to the web in flv format at 700kbps, Deinterlaced (using Premiere CS3). The videos don't seem as crisp as I thought they would be originally. Is there some sort of downsampling method I should use for exporting my videos to flv (without making them huge)?
I'm going from 1440x1200 (1080i) way down to 360x203. Any suggestions on exporting so far down?
Use more resolution. At 700 kbps, you can go at 480x270 resolution.
Additionally, there's no reason to use the old FLV codec. You can export in .mp4, Flash 9/10 support streaming MP4 files now. MP4 h.264 has better quality than FLV at the same bitrate. I would suggest you use 640x360 at 700 kbps with streaming MP4.
Okay, I guess I'll try that - but embedding mp4's is more difficult than flv's AFAIK...right?
No, it's the same "difficulty". You just need to have a player that knows how to handle MP4s.

By "difficult" I meant IE's lovely flash embed issues of late. I don't think mp4 should be much more of an issue to deal with. Thanks for the replies!
