I'm working with a video artist on a professional music video for YouTube. I received both a 48K (MFiT) and 44.1K (Streaming) master from my mastering engineer.
Which file should I give the video artist? I heard all video editing software works with 48K but I also heard that YouTube transforms audio to 44.1K once videos are uploaded.
Which would you give the video artist in order to achieve the best sounding qualities once the video is on YouTube and avoid funny conversion, scarring, and other side effects?
You are here
48K (MFiT) or 44.1K for YouTube Music Video?
For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

The 48k file. If they plan to lay it onto video it needs to be at 48k, regardless of what happens to the finished video afterwards.
