Online Marketing/My videos not uploading fast enough


Hi Steve. 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.

Once you are done editing the video you need to use a program like SUPER ( to convert the final product MP4 into a smaller file format and smaller file size.  
An even better option would be to use a program like Camtasia to edit the video because it has a built in save to YouTube function and will automatically convert to smaller size and upload for you after edit upon final save.

Hope that helps!
