Online Marketing/My videos not uploading fast enough


Hi Stephanie. 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 there,

This question is outside of my expertise unfortunately. But you might want to check to ensure you have your video in the right form, and also check that you have a high speed internet connection. I'm sorry I am not more help. My expertise is in marketing so I could help you more with the content of the video than the technology involved. Thank you.
