Video in Photoshop and color profile

I'm doing few adjustments to some video clips in Photoshop and I was wondering what color space should I choose for it? When I open a video in Photoshop, it asks me "the document has not embedded RGB color profile, what would you like to do: 1) leave it as is (dont color manage), 2) assign profile (sRGB, Adobe RGB etc)". What should I do?

Hum... not sure, I’d think sRGB. Depends however on what’s playing the video and if it understands ICC profiles (more the reason to be working in sRGB).

I believe Quicktime (might have to be Pro or X) is going to fly with the embedded profile.

Thanks. BTW, what is the best conditions for color correcting footage? Dark room without light or with (daylight balanced) lights?

Probably yes, just like viewing stills.

Re: Video in Photoshop and color profile

When editing video in photoshop, work in RGB Color for consistent results. Most NLE's now handle RGB levels correctly without any conversion on your part. Also, if your video is going to be viewed on a television, you may find it helpful to use the NTSC color filter (Filter>video>NTSC Colors) to check the saturation of your video; However, It is important to be aware that the NTSC filter can cause noticeable banding.
