Online Marketing/My videos not uploading fast enough

Question
Hi Chelsea. 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.

Answer
Hi Sterling,

Encoding videos is not my expertise but from my experience Youtube does take decent time even for 1-3 minute videos.
What I do ask though is that through your process are you Rendering your video? Rendering is where the project/video is mixing all your edits into one final continuous clip. This might make the upload process a little quicker as it is considered one clip.
If you aren't doing so this would be the first thing I would recommend for a faster upload time.

Have a fantastic day, looking forward to hearing from you.
