New Youtube Limits

Question

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)?

You are not reading their limitation correctly :glare:

 

It is an AND they are using not an OR...

Your file must be Less than 15 minutes AND less than 2 GB.

 

How about some details of what you have and the steps you are using when you attempt to upload to You Tube?

 

Then someone can assist in helping you ;)

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. post-94021-025940000 1301938170.jpg

Have you simply tried to upload to YouTube directly from Video Wave -- assuming that is where your video project is. Video Wave,menu along the top, output - Share to You Tube.

 

What application are you using to try to get the video to You Tube now?

 

Sorry, :rolleyes: I just realized you are using Creator 2010 and I'm not sure what options you have with that.

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!

What format are you using now? Have you considered 3gp (output from Roxio) or flash (FLV) - you'll need to get a third party software for Flash.

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!

My reading of You Tube was that only a "Director" account could exceed 15 minutes.

 

Those accounts were from the early days and not available anymore.

 

Is that what you have, a Director accout?

 

Have you ever loaded a file there in excess of 15 minutes length?

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! Here's a link for more info...

3gpp is one of the options in Copy and Convert video. Select phone or simiplar; I don't remember which. It is standard definition so you may not want it.

 

How about theYou Tube advanced uploder here.

 

You can also find a free flash video converter on-line - Google for one. These are typically smaller sized windows. I don't know if You Tube will make the window larger.

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?

No, Roxio cannot do flash. I use a paid for converter that is pretty expensive but have used a free standalone in the past. Go to cnet.com and read about them.

 

I understood that you could break a video into chunks and upload them so that they all come together. You should be abe to break that project into as many chunks as you need to using Video Wave.

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?
