I've just encountered a roadblock while I was trying to make some 1080p clips.
Please give it to me straight.
If I have to inject another delay, so be it.
However, if 720p will produce a good result, then please let me know, as I'm clearly on the right road now.
The annoying details are...
The thing I'm facing is screen capture and video editing software; he's demanding pixel for pixel perfection (which is fine, understandable, and really, what we all want)
I searched these forums and it appears that if I use 720p right now, that everything will work out fine; and if I'm reading correctly (correction welcome) the 720p will actually work out better than the 1080p
So then, how safe am I dropping back to 720 ?
Please advise the clueless newbee
Hi @CLINT 720p (1280 x 720) is the minimum resolution required for uploading videos on the Udemy platform. So, if you want to create an HD video, switch the resolution of your screen to 1280 x 720 with a program to switch resolutions.
Also, know that Udemy has enabled an “Adaptive Streaming” player for course videos, and we’re gradually adding this to all courses. This means that students will be able to choose an “Auto” streaming option for courses and that 720p is the maximum manual resolution choice. 1080p will be possible for your course videos, but only when “Auto” is selected, and students have the streaming capability and screen size to take advantage of 1080p.
Once your course is published, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can speed up your course’s inclusion in the Adaptive Streaming player, to make sure that students can access your videos in full 1080p.

Can I record in 1600 by 900 ?
If so, this solves problems, like super good solves them.
So far, when I search this site for this answer, I see posts with "720p" and "1080p", but nothing about 900p (is there even such a thing ? Can't keep up with industry marketing departments)

This question is slightly technical. However, I will share the article that helped me when I was a newbie. I followed this support article: https://support.udemy.com/hc/en-us/articles/229232767-Video-Standards-and-Choosing-a-Camera
Hope this is helpful 🙂
Thanks Rahul; Checked out your link. I'm pretty sure that my eyes have see that page at least once; but certainly no harm in reviewing something as important as this.
I'm still unclear
With my hardware and software, the 1600x900 screen recorder is consistent and dependable, while the other resolutions just go to pot with mysterious and unexplained behavior which I'm not in the mood to chase for days and weeks at a time.
I have placed a 74 second test video on the test video section of Udemy yesterday (and I'm chomping at the bit for them to tell me "yes") so it looks like I'll just have to wait and see.
Hey, thanks anyway; nice to know that guys like you exist.
