In the system settings, go figure the gmail account that has your YouTube credentials.

better yet, export the movie file and open it in into the default movie player, select 'share' from the toolbar and post to YouTube, or you can right click on the video file and share it.

Broadcast yourself


are you uploading from your phone or from a PC?

If from a PC, try thisL

* use Chrome to upload, instead of Internet Explorer or Firefox
* Go to the upload page
* before you upload, look for the URL in the address bar. Change the 'http' to 'https' and press enter to reload the page.
* then, upload normally.

The HTTPS version of Youtube's upload page has some error correction that helps it overcome the occasional hiccup the internet encounters.

No matter what kind of file I trial to upload, AVI or WMV I always get a message that says "upload failed to an unknown error."


It is a well known YouTube bug. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and look for the link called "Basic Uploader" (see image below). By doing it through this link you won't get an error.6_20_2011_8_07_29_pm.jpg

Cant upload video from file to youtube


I suspect you exceed the allowable length and size of video to be uploaded that's why you receive a message from Facebook of failure upload, to solve your problem just read the term or subscribe for pro so that you can upload lot of videos without limitation in size and length.

Try saving the video to disk, then using your web browser, visit YouTube.com and use the "upload" link to send your video to YouTube. If this works, then check your user name and password settings in iMovie. It may also be that the video does not meat the requirements for YouTube, and by uploading it with a web browser, you should get the information you need to resolve the problem.

My video still doesn't show up on YouTube, but on my iMovie page it says it has been published on YouTube.


Try uploading the video with your web browser. You will get better feedback from YouTube that way and you may get the information needed to make it work.

I don't know how to make a youtube video.


1- Make a movie using a digital camera, web cam, or cell phone. An old VHS will only work if you transfer it to a digital file—you’ll need a digital converter to plug an older camcorder into the computer. You can upload a YouTube movie directly from a phone if you set up a Mobile Profile in YouTube. With a high speed connection, it should generally take a few minutes, give or take.
2- Edit your movie. Programs such as Mac’s iMovie or Windows’ MovieMaker are both good—add titles, effects, cut out a bad take, etc.
3- Resize the video so it looks best in YouTube. The site accepts QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files at 340x240 resolution. There’s a 100MB size and 10 minute length limit.
4- Create a YouTube account. Click on Upload Videos in the upper right corner of the home page.
5- Create a title, description, tags, category, and set language. The more information the better to help people find the video.

YouTube Problem Uploading


Did you try the YouTube Uploader? you'll first need to install it on a Windows computer. To do so, follow the steps below:
  1. Sign in and click the "Upload" link in the upper right corner of any YouTube page.
  2. On the right side of the page, click the "Use multi-video uploader" button.
  3. You'll immediately receive the following message: "YouTube Uploader app not running - you will be redirected to the install page."
  4. Click "OK."
  5. Click the "Install Windows Uploader" link.
  6. You'll be asked if you want to save the "YouTubeUploaderSetup.exe" file. Click the "Save File" button and specify where you'd like the file to be saved.
  7. Open the file once it's been saved to your computer and it will install the Uploader.
Once you've installed the Uploader, you'll be redirected to the Multi-Video Upload page.
