You Tube Issues

Arrrgggg ... all my video upload attempts are getting cut from 9+ minutes to 34 seconds. Any ideas??? I've tried two recordings now and multiple file versions in case one was corrupt. I also wonder if there's a cumulative storage limit.

Not too into video myself but was just thinking, maybe you could use another video hosting service until you figure it out.

Odd problem. Have you tried recording directly to Youtube rather than uploading a file?

Here's the link:

Don,

The url below mentions conversion issue from last week:

It suggests using other than FireFox but not sure.

I assume you know this stuff but here goes anyway:

Please make sure any firewall software you may have is allowing the connection to our server.

You may also want to try clearing your browser cache and cookies and uploading your video again.

YTube accepts most video file formats,including .wmv, .mov, .mpg, or .avi. If your video meets these minimum requirements and still won't upload, there may be a problem with the video compression you're using. They recommend the MPEG4 format at 640x480 resolution with MP3 audio

Thanks all -

Currently trying again with clear cache and cookies.

Stay tuned.

Vimeo

is another good video sharing site. I think the lengths can be longer to.

OK, looks like it's a YouTube issue accepting the QuickCam AVI load which I normally use, so I've bypassed my software and uploaded using YouTube's direct capture function.

Thanks Doug.
