Can't Sign In To Youtube!

Question

Well, hi. I recorded some gameplay with my new Roxio game capture hd pro earlier today (and had to battle some blue screens of death). I wanted to edit it a little then upload it to youtube. Simple, right? I ran into some problems because Videowave kept freezing, lagging, crashing, etc. It took me hours to finally get my video edited as the format the recordings were saved in didn't work so well with Windows movie maker, which just happened to be the only other video editing software I had installed. :P But, I finally got it edited.

 

So, I clicked output and saw the "Share to Youtube" button. "Yay!" I think. This means I won't have to export my video then upload it. I can just click one button to start the process then finally go to bed! (It's 3 am here!)

 

Not that simple, of course. I click "Share to Youtube" and am met with a screen telling me to sign into youtube. I type my username and password. It tells me one of them is incorrect. I fiddled around for a couple minutes trying different combinations, then I decided to try my email. Well, that's obviously what it wanted. Because it gave me no "incorrect username/password" errors after that. However, after clicking "login", guess what it DID do? Nothing! It closed the log in dialog and did absolutely nothing else. I tried clicking "next" again to see if maybe it logged me in. Nope! Up comes the log in dialog. I re type my info and click login. The dialog closes. Again. I click "log in" this time instead of "next", only to be met with the same log in dialog. I re type my info AGAIN and press login. The dialog closes and does nothing AGAIN. I click next again, etc.

 

I have my youtube channel linked to my google account, if that could be causing a problem. Other than that, I don't see why the dialog would just close and pretend nothing happened. Also, this is just a minor inconvenience for me. I just have to export, them upload as two different steps. It just takes a little longer. But it stinks as I've already had enough trouble today trying to get one video uploaded.

 

If anyone else ran into this problem and/or has a solution! PLEASE let me know so I can one click upload in the future. Thanks. :)

RGC comes with one of the best Video Editors made, why use MS's entry level???

 

Yes a few other users have hit this is you look around here. But I do not recall any specific solutions :(

RGC comes with one of the best Video Editors made, why use MS's entry level???

 

Yes a few other users have hit this is you look around here. But I do not recall any specific solutions :(

 

My computer is seriously old and so for me Videowave crashes all the time. Like, almost every three minutes. Then I have to wait forever for it to come back up again and redo anything I lost. I'm a frequent saver and I still loose 10-15 minutes of work because of crashes in videowave! Even when videowave doesn't crash it hangs like nuts. I'll click "Add Photo/Video. " and I'll have to wait a minute or two. I'll choose an image and click ok. I have to wait about 2 minutes. It'll add the picture and I go to drag it around to another position. Crash. Then I have to wait for it to reopen, and then I have to re add the image because of the lack of an auto save feature. Even on my super slow PC the saving takes about 10 seconds, so why the heck is there no auto save?!?

 

Because of all this lag, the crashes, and no auto save feature for when it does crash, Videowave becomes unbearable for me. That and even if it didn't explode every three minutes, it's still a new program for me. And new programs take time to learn. Even MS Paint needs to be learned the first time someone uses it. But since it crashes all the time, I CAN'T learn it unless I watch a tutorial and just trust that their advice is up-to-date.

 

 

So, I prefer Windows Live Movie Maker as it doesn't lag or crash on my PC, and because of that and it's simplicity, I'm used to it and have nothing new to learn. And I don't care what people say. If you know what you're doing, you can actually get some pretty good effects out of it. The only reason I used videowave is because when I loaded the m2ts file into movie maker, the program had to "prepare" it for about 10 minutes. When it finished, I played back the video to see if it did anything to the quality, and sure enough, the video looked tiny and blurry.

 

So, because videowave came with my roxio gamecap hd pro, I knew it would load the files just fine. Since I had no other video editing software on my windows partion and no antivirus (my Kasperski expired) to let me browse the web and download video editors safely, I dealt with Videowave and ended up trying to do nothing other then add an intro, outro, text, and one other recording. This would've been a simple drag-n-drop process for me in movie maker, but since videowave kept crashing it took me hours. It was three in the morning when I finally got it to the point where it was ready to export.

 

That's why I prefer movie maker. ;)

 

 

As for the solution, dang. That's a bummer. :(

 

It's probably just because the sign in form broke cause' of some changes to youtube. That or it just doesn't work with channels linked to google accounts. Either way, that's upsetting. :(

 

What are the odds we'll get an update to fix this? Since I just got my roxio yesterday and it's the first Roxio product I've ever used, I don't know how frequent Roxio updates their software. Is it like, every week? Or never again? :o

If your PC can't run VW, it can't run RGC :huh:

 

Maybe you could list your Specs?

 

Well, actually, I have a single-core laptop. I'm below the minimum required specs. Yet, somehow, as if by magic, it records xbox 360 gameplay from the roxio game capture hd pro in the included capture program at full hd just fine! No lag, or video errors, or anything! Through hdmi for crying out loud! And it looks GORGEOUS. That's why I wanted to upload these videos to Youtube.

 

If you must know my specs, however, I'll just tell you I have a Compaq Presario CQ62 instead of listing all the specifications out here.

 

Again, I'm aware my PC does not meet the minimum requirements. Yet, somehow, it captures just fine. And it edits fine with videowave, too. Except for the crashing. :P

 

If you know of any editing program that's free, supports m2ts files (or whatever they are), and work fine on a slow single core laptop, PLEASE let me know. :) I'd love to try something new, as long as it'll meet those requirements. ;)

It does not edit "fine with Videowave" - it crashes. Your system is just too much below specs for it to run the programs. It is a miracle that you are able to run RGC or even install it.

If you need the specs here, fine. :/

 

But I know it doesn't meet the required specs.

 

I'm listing them out as listed by Control Panel and the DirectX Diagnostics Tool Combined. So, if something I type doesn't quite make sense, that's why.

 

CPU:

Intel Celeron. 900 @ 2.20 GHz, 2.19 GHz

 

Installed Memory (RAM):

 

2.00 GB (2048 MB)

 

GPU:

 

Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family, 797 MB of memory.

 

 

 

 

It does not edit "fine with Videowave" - it crashes. Your system is just too much below specs for it to run the programs. It is a miracle that you are able to run RGC or even install it.

 

Like I said, I know my specs are old and don't meet the requirements. I have an Intel Celeron for crying out loud. I know that my pc is old. And I can edit "fine with Videowave." Yes, it crashes frequently, but I was actually able to successfully edit and export a video which I uploaded to Youtube. When I said it crashes "every 3 minutes" I meant it felt like every 3 minutes. Sometimes it'd go 10-20 minutes without problems. It's usable on my computer besides the fact that it crashes a lot.

 

Maybe it is a miracle I can record successfully with this computer. But, guess what? Other than my cpu being beyond outdated, everything else meets the specs. Even my GPU, which as insanely old as it is, SURPASSES the minimum requirement. I guess when I start recording it just offloads the task to the GPU. I don't know how else it could possibly capture without flaw.

 

Point is, I know my pc is old and begging to be upgraded. I'm not trying to complain like some idiot saying "WEll, ThEY Shoood Make VideoWAVVHH worK WiTH MAH CoMPuuuTer.". I realize software developers can't just snap their fingers and have new software work well with old computers. That's like me asking a game company to port their 3D HD video game to the NES, because I just can't afford one of those 'new fangled' xbox's. OBVIOUSLY I'm going to have to either deal with the fact that they can't port it, or go out and buy better hardware.

 

So, I'm not trying to complain that Videowave doesn't work with my computer, and I'm sorry if I came off that way. I know video editing is a hefty task, and I don't expect a program like Videowave to run at full speed on an old computer. I just expect it to at least let me sign into youtube, which it didn't do.

You're lucky the software even loaded on that computer. You surely shouldn't expect it to "at least" let you sign into YouTube through the software. Sign in through the internet.

...I already WAS signed in through the internet. -3-

 

This isn't a web browser window videowave opens. It opens a custom-made dialog. The program itself tries to connect to youtube, not a web browser that the program opens. Signing in through the internet didn't do anything.

 

I know my PC is old. Again, I'm not trying to shove a xbox 360 disc into a NES cartridge slot and then wondering why the developers didn't make it work on my console. I realize you can't expect new software to work on old hardware. I said that already! It's just that if the program opens, (after struggling with some lag/crashes) lets me make a video, exports it, and opens a sign in dialog as soon as I click the button, I expect the sign in dialog to work. Obviously the problem is not my laptop if I could get that far. It could, however, be my google account, or possibly a firewall. That or the program. That's all that I can think of.

 

That wasn't directly targeted at you, and I'm sorry if it sounded rude. It's just that I feel like everyone is just taking one look at the requirements, freaking out because my PC doesn't have everything on that list, and then telling me that my laptop is old (which I already know), completely ignoring my problem.

 

You made one remark about my old PC, and then gave me advice. So, you were actually trying to help. Thank you for that. Jim_Hardin was doing the same thing, and I thank him for trying to help too. But, myguggi just told me my PC was old, and stopped there.

 

Thank you all for your support, and I'm sorry if I offended you. I'm just kind of frustrated because I'm having issues with the things that should be easy, and felt like this was leading no where.

The Celeron is your issue - the software does not work with a Celeron (or amd equivalent)...

 

They list the Minimum Specifications for a reason. I am sorry you did not realize that before you wasted your time and money -_-

Thank you for telling me this, but since I did get some successful captures with this device and besides the lag/crashes was able to make a video with VideoWave, obviously something works.

 

I read the minimum requirements before I bought the roxio. My computer meets every requirement, even the GPU one, but the CPU. Since I bought my roxio off of eBay, I figured I'd just try it out, and if it didn't work I could resell it and get my money back.

 

Point is, besides the issues which I expected given my computer does not meet the requirements, it suprisingly let me capture in full hd quality perfectly!

 

I just recorded a 30 minute video at full hd yesterday on my laptop. It came out crystal clear with no lag, skips, or even any blur for Pete's sake! Now, you guys can tell me my computer won't work all you want, but since it DID work well enough to capture the video, and since Videowave DID eventually let me edit and export the captured video, obviously those statements are incorrect.

 

The program is connected to the internet. The program starts just fine, and until I try to do some editing to the video doesn't lag or crash at all. It connects to youtube in this dialog and tells me if my info is incorrectly entered. This means that the program works on my old Celeron. The problem is that it won't sign me into youtube. Not my computer.

 

Everyone, please help me solve the problem instead of telling me my computer is to old, and ending there. It isn't like I open videowave, and it crashes every time one second later. It only crashes when I do heavy video editing. I've heard people say Videowave crashes for them even on computers that meet the requirements.

 

I realize that sometimes "your computer is too old!" is the answer. And, I've had to take that as an answer for a lot of other problems I've had. But because my computer does work with the roxio (with some minor issues here and there. ), this leads me to believe that the problem is not my laptop, but rather my google account, or possibly even Videowave itself.

 

Thank you all for taking the time out of your days to help, and I'm sorry if I came off rude. It's just that I don't believe this problem is my laptop. And I keep being told it is. Just because you have 0.99 gallons of gas instead of the minimum requirement of 1 doesn't mean it won't be enough to get you home. Just because my processor doesn't meet these "requirements" doesn't nessisarily mean I won't be able to use the Roxio. If everything worked well enough to let me capture, then something somehow is working.

 

Thank you.

You are welcome and I am out of here :)

 

Would you consider a car that stops intermittenly to be working?

Why don't you simply sign into youTube with your Internet Browser? :wacko:

If your happy with it, that's great...

 

NO ONE else has been happy trying to use one and we have seen for years they simply do not cut the mustard for video work.

 

Probably depends on where you set the bar and I am by no means a Numbers Junkie -_-

I did. It doesn't sign you into youtube in videowave if you sign in through a browser.

 

No, if the car randomly stopped it wouldn't be working. If it only stopped when you went 200 mph, I would consider it working.

 

Videowave only crashes for me when I'm doing heavy video editing. If I'm just adding a picture, or re-arranging clips in the timeline, it's fine.

 

If your happy with it, that's great...

Thank you for being so understanding. :)

 

I'm not particularly happy with it, but it does the work I need it to do if I put up with it's slowness. I need an upgrade sometime soon, but since I just got the Roxio gamecap hd pro and, believe it or not, a new tv to go with it (I know. I'm crazy. XD), well, my laptop will have to wait a little longer. :P

The guys are trying to tell you that once you have your video already output into a format that YouTube accepts, forget about Videowave. Close Videowave and forget about it. Then open your browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome) and go to Youtube.com and sign into your Youtube account. Click the Upload button and navigate to where you saved your output file in your computer. Double click on the file and it will begin uploading to your Youtube account.

Oh. Well, I actually already did that. XD

 

Thanks for clatifying, though.

 

I was just wondering why that glitch happened/how to fix it so I could comvieniently one-click upload in the future. :) That's why I made the thread. I should've explained that better. :P

 

Thanks to you and Jim Hardin for being helpful/understanding! I really appreciate that. :)

I am sorry that I do not have a useful fix -_-

 

I wasn't being sarcastic. I'm saying thanks to both of you for helping me.

 

The others just basically said to buy a new computer. Which, at the time, I can't really do. Both of you tried to clarify things and give me advice to solve the problem.

 

Thank you. :)

I did not think you were being sarcastic, I meant that I was sorry that I don't have a good fix!

 

I have only used a time or two and of course there were not issues :wacko:

 

I guess the Manual Upload is the way to go for now :(

You do need to get a new computer, but if you can live with what you have now, that's okay. Just don't come into the forums, complaining that there is something not working with your boat anchor, and the software. Just live with it, until you can get a new computer.
