I have just created my first (16 second video) and would like to upload it to you tube. I have attempted to log in with both my You Tube account name and Google account name and password. Both these methods work on You Tube and on Cyberlink Powerdirector, however neither work with elements; all I get is the message "The username and password you provided do not match. Please try again."
I note from the forum that previous versions had this problem, but surely the latest version works???
I have now created a file and uploaded outside of elements directly through You Tube but surely there must be a way within Elements that works?
You Tube (Google) have recently increased their security and now require "Two Stage" authorisation for many products. This entails setting up a password in Google for each application that is required to access your Google/YouTube account directly. Having generated an application specific password for Elements all works fine!
Sadly, although Elements appears now to log on to You Tube, upload still does not work. I now get the message
Sorry, an error occur during the uploading process. Please try again later.
(I have tried the new process with Cyberlink and it uploads fine!).
I just got this email from Google. The troubleshooting steps only apply to a mail client. I'm pretty sure the unauthorised attempt, which contained the correct user naem and password, was Premiere Elements. I think Google has made me a victim of its ubiquity. As though managing passwrods were not already difficult enough.
Someone recently tried to use an application to sign in to your Google Account, email@example.com. We prevented the sign-in attempt in case this was a hijacker trying to access your account. Please review the details of the sign-in attempt:
