Internet Media/My videos not uploading fast enough


Hi Anna. Do you know how I can encode my videos into a streamable file format so my videos will upload faster on youtube? This is what youtube tells me on the screen as my 1 to 3 minute video takes at least an hour to upload. They give me a link for a tutorial on how to change this but it doesn't relate to my situation since the software they're mentioning wasn't involved in the creation of my motion pictures. I'm using a Sony handycam to record the footage and then converting the file extension to a MP4 using Format Factory so I can see the playback as I'm editing it in Windows movie maker.

Hi Sterling,

You need a program that does this for you.  This encoding is how the audio & video get integrated - and your current software is not doing that - I hope that makes sense? You can get a free trial full version of Camtasia Studio for Windows & it will do what you need - and you can save the file for a specific YouTube format and directly upload to your YouTube Channel.  Here is the link ->  You can also use Adobe Premier Pro which is much more complicated, has a free trial full version, and can make you any video format you want.  You will want to import your work into one of the programs, then render it (which is a save or export) & you should have a quick uploading solution.  I hope this help you.
