Anyone On Youtube?

I’ve been trying to figure out youtube tonight. I’ve only looked at it a few times in my life so far. Yeah, I know I’m out of it. 😉

Anyway, I was thinking that I’d like to post a video I made on here. I can’t figure out how to put it on here. Then I thought… I’ve posted videos from youtube on here before with no problems.

So, then I thought I should upload my videos onto youtube. That’s where I’m having trouble. I guess there must be some tricks I’m not aware of.

I can get it to the point of trying to upload. Then it tells me it will take HUNDREDS of minutes!!! Obviously, I’m not going to sit around and wait for 500 minutes so I cancel the operation. It’s not really that large of a file.

I haven’t figured out how to do ANY editing of my videos on my computer. I have windows live movie maker, but when I tried to edit a video and save it, I couldn’t open it again at all.

Has anyone here worked with videos? Have any helpful hints? I’m lost and I admit I don’t have enough interest at this time to spend a lot of time fooling around with it if I can’t figure it out pretty quickly.

Yeah, I’m being lazy on this. Just too much to do in real life to play with it for too long.

  1. It depends a lot on a few things.
    I have a you tube account.
    I film with my phone generally. You tube has a limit on the length of a film you can upload. Short clips are best.
    Filming with your phone makes the process simpler as with this device you can directly upload too.
    It is also impossible to edit on your phone if you wish.
    If the length of your film clip is already short and you’re still getting a message that says a long upload time could it be the bandwidth available to you on the Internet?


  2. If it’s your first time, you may have to spend a little time on the effort. However, once you get the hang of it, YouTube (website on desktop) allows editing/clipping and even background scores.
    Alternatively you may also try Vimeo, which again allows you to embed videos into webpages/blogs like YouTube.
