    Did Youtube suggest the stabilization or did it do it automatically? I uploaded a vid that was very bouncy from a windy day and it didn't do anything about stabilization or suggest it.

    Just wondering.

    Must admit I prefer either gimbal-stabilised footage, or just the footage from the stock Vision. The former obviously looks very smooth, the latter has an element of "reality" about it, you can see the air moving the "camera" around a bit. The artificially stabilised footage just looks... artificial. It's neither one thing nor another - and I agree that the bouncing banana action can be very odd indeed!

    Having said that, if you like the stabilised look then as a zero-cost option the YouTube one does do a pretty good job - certainly value for money!

    I'm with you on that, Pat. I realize that some people just don't care for the YouTube stabilization or any other post-recording stabilization but to my eyes the YouTube stabilization is sometimes a remarkably pleasant improvement over a shaky Phantom video.

    PMCDN - in the enhancement tab it let me do it there.

    Spanktimonious - agreed and I wish I had a gimbal to help.

    Pull_Up - here is the stock footage same as above no stabilization - http://youtu.be/or1gsmyu-Zo way to jumpy and I was taking it very easy on the sticks. It was a little more breezy then I thought but still to jumpy for me. I which it looked smooth but not really smooth at all. hate that banana as well - I may buck up and by a better program soon or better the gimbal.

    Bigbells - agreed and here is orginial with no tweaks :roll: http://youtu.be/or1gsmyu-Zo

    thanks all for the view and thoughts.

    I think YouTube may try to stabilize everything. I uploaded a warp stabilized vid and still got the alert if I want to YouTube to stabilize the video.

    You won't like the youtube stabilization if you have Dashware generated gauges overlayed on your video. But other than that, yes it seems to be a good and very cheap improvement.
