How long is your movie? It could be that your movie is too long to load to YouTube.
YouTube, by the way, is notorious for changing their upload systems without notice, so yours is not an uncommon problem. You can try going to Premiere Elements' Edit/Preferences/Web Sharing and clicking the Refresh button -- although in version 11, this should be fairly automatic.
Meantime, you can manually create your file to your computer and then load it to YouTube, as described in our FAQs (as well as detailed in my books). Many people prefer to do it this way anyway because they like the results better.
Thanks, I will give it a try when I get home (I guess I missed that one). The video is 5 minutes long. I will post back later and let you know how it goes.
The 05 min. Duration should not be an issue.
I agree with Steve on Sharing/Publishing to a file on your computer, as a test. If that completes properly, then Steve's link should help you post that file to YouTube.
Also be aware that Win8 has made "some" changes to how things work... OR some of the Win8 functions do not, yet, work properly
This may have nothing to do with your connection problems, but a short example of a Win8 function that does not work
I built a new computer for my wife (i7 3770 w/32Gig ram on an Intel MB) and used Win8 because she "loves" the Start screen icons
One APP that came with Win8 is for Skype... which would NOT work on her computer... no error messages, it just would not connect
I uninstalled the APP and went directly to Skype and installed the "classic" desktop version of the program... which works perfectly
So... it just MAY be that part of your problem is Win8... or, maybe not, as I said... so just do as Steve said and skip the non-working automatic upload
Thanks Steve and everyone else for the assist. In the end, I was able to convert to a WMV format in Premiere 11, then was able to upload directly from You Tube with success. Worked and looks great, Thx again.
Excellent news, and thank you for posting of your success.
