Why won't Elements 8 upload to youtube?

Mar 2, 2013 10:08 AM

Last year we made many videos and upload to youtube from Elements 8. Now we've tried to upload some new ones, and the title screen is different, where you type title and description, and when you click upload nothing happens.

    YouTube changed their accounts some time back, and went to Google Accounts. I would check your subscription info, and verify that it is correct in PrE.

     

    Next, YouTube initiated "enhanced accounts," allowing one to upload longer than the old 10 min. limit. PrE (and especially 8) was written when there were only regular accounts, with the 10 min. limits. Even PrE 11, is still set to 10 mins., as YouTube made that change, after PrE 11 was written. How long is your Project.

     

    As a test, can you Export/Share to an AV file with the YouTube Preset, and then manually log into YouTube with your account, and upload that file?

     

    This FAQ Entry gives tips on YouTube Export/Share: http://forums.adobe.com/message/2759311#2759311

     

    Good luck,

    What model of camcorder is your original video coming from and what format and resolution is it?

     

    When you started your Premiere Elements project, which project settings did you select? (You can see, but not change, this under Edit/Project Settings.)

     

    If your project settings do match your source footage, then using the steps in the link above will definitely upload a widescreen video. If your project settings are incorrect, it may not.

    Sorry, I can't help you without the information we need about your project.

    The black bars, or cut-off sides are, as Steve mentions, from a mis-match between the Source Files and the Project's Frame Size, determined by the Preset.

     

    When you did the Export/Share, and attempted to upload manually to YouTube, was that successful, disregarding the black bars, etc., for a moment?

     

    Good luck,

    No. As Bill says, this is a YouTube issue. Not an Adobe issue.

    First, what format, and specs. does the TV station want?

     

    As there are so many choices, it's usually best to get the specs. from the recipient, and then work within those parameters, to get them the very best possible files.

     

    Good luck,
