  1. This is an issue I've had for a long time. I use a Nikon Coolpix AW100 and although the film clips look great on the camera, they are way too dark on most common media players and in Roxio videowave. The only time they are the same quality as recorded is when playing them in Quicktime. All of this on a Windows 8 PC. I've attached screenshots from Quicktime player and VLC media player to show the difference and that the footage is really only usable in Quicktime quality. Roxio videowave is the same quality as VLC. I usually just lighten and brighten these dark video files using an old version of vReveal but it really damages the video quality, making them more pixelated and not as sharp as the original. I don't understand why I can't use the files as my camera recorded them if programs such as Quicktime can play them as intended. Please, does anyone know how I can achieve Quicktime video quality for .mov files in videowave, or any other editing program for that matter?

    I used some free flash software, Leawo, which reduced my 1.38GIG .mpg file to less than 300 MB. This reduced my Youtube upload time from over 10 hours to just under 2 hours and it is tolerable youtube quality, so thank you sknis! I am keen to still experiment with other formats to reduce the pixelation even further and also very keen to know if Roxio 2011 has a 'direct to youtube' sharing function for HD files over 15 minutes! Anyone?

    Unfortunately I had no luck with large files and the advanced uploader, the advanced uploader is meant to work in 'chunks' so if it crashes or loses connection you are meant to be able to resume the upload. However large files conk out at about 40% and the advanced uploader only offers 'canel' when that happens. An FLV conversion sounds like an interesting option, can you recommend good FLV software? Can Roxio do an FLV conversion in 2010 or 2011?

    I successfully uploaded the 23 minute mp4 348 MB version of the film, but due to it being an AVC Smaller Size file, in that the dimensions are smaller, it is a little pixelated for my liking on a YouTube platform. Any tips for a good quality format with an easy to manage file size? Perhaps 500 MB? Do you know if Roxio 2011 will allow a direct videowave > youtube sharing function for videos in excess of 15 mins? I'll purchase it if it does, otherwise I'm happy to stick with 2010 for a few months. PS. 15min+ uplaods are granted to regular youtubers who behave themselves!

    So far I have tried: AVCHD 1920x1080i - mp4 (1.95 GB) Generic MPEG-2, good quality - mpg (1.38 GB) (Both great quality but hours to upload, and then the upload fails at about 40%) AVC smaller size - mp4 (346 MB) (Successful upload but the dimensions are too small) I can't find 3gp on my videowave output list but I'll try anything? I'm hoping for some tips otherwise it's a case of working through the export list one format at a time!

    I'd love to upload directly from Videowave, and Creator 2010 Pro does have that option but when I try to use that feature it says, "Sorry, your video is too large to upload. Videos must be less than 1024 MB in size and 10 minutes in length to upload to YouTube". It seems Creator 2010 doesn't recognise the ammendments to YouTube's limitations and I have no idea if Creator 2011 has fixed this? So at the moment I am exporting the file and uploading it manually. However I was hoping someone could recommend a good file format to export which would provide a good quality youtube upload but with less MB because at the moment it takes around 8 hours to upload!

    The attached screenshot may help. My youtube account is upgraded and enabled for uploads LONGER than 15 minutes, provided that they are less than 2 GIG. My current film is 1.3 GIG and 22 mins long. Roxio 2010 Pro doesn't seem to recognise youtube account variations such as this and I was wondering whether Roxio 2011 Pro might as I haven't purchased it yet. I condensed my film into an AVC Small File to make manual uploading (export, login to youtube, upload) easier, but the file is, as they say, small. I was wondering whether someone with experience uploading films in excess of 15minutes could suggest a good export format which makes for quick uploading but no major sacrifices in quality or dimensions.

    Even though Youtube now allows uploads over 15 minutes and up to 2 GIG, my Roxio 2010 Output will not allow me to use the "Share Online" function for videos over 10 minutes. Is there a way to bypass this? Has this been fixed in Roxio 2011? What would be the best export format for me to use to then manually upload to Youtube (for a movie just over 20mins)?
