    uploading to youtube

    foxdown88 Community Member

      I have read previous posts on this subject and the comment that Youtube often change their specs. The various remedial suggestions seem a bit technical for me. Even going into Youtube and trying to upload files does not seem to work.

      It would not upload a file I had loaded a few days ago.

      I use PE 10 . I am thinking of trying to upload to Vimeo instead which PE 10 does not support. Does PE 11 support Vimeo?

      If so it will give me an excuse to upgrade.

      Thanks

          Version 11 does indeed give you a direct link to Vimeo as well as YouTube and Facebook.

           

          Although, in version 10 as well as 11, you can also use Share/Computer/AVCHD, where you'll find presets that are optimized for outputting video for YouTube and Vimeo (either one of which will also work for video you plan to upload to Facebook and Flickr).

            If you provide a little more detail, I can probably help.  What steps didn't work?  What camera footage file type did you start with?  How long is your video?

             

            The process that works best for me is to create the video file like Steve says.  It is the same in 10 and 11.  Then use the YouTube upload page here:  https://www.youtube.com/upload

              Thanks Bill

              I will try Steve's suggestion.

              In answer to your question about the detail.

              The source file was AVI.

              When I went into Share I chose YouTube

               

              Up came

              Flash video

              H.264

              640x480

              30 fps

              file size  2min 38 sec

               

              I press  Next but in the next screen asking for the title and description the Next button is greyed out.

               

              When I log into YouTube separately and try and upload the file ( and one I have previously uploaded successfully) the message is  ' the video has failed to process'

                Can you try one of the other YouTube presets?  Depending on your source footage, 640x480 might be pretty bad anyway.

                  Thanks

                  I have tried all the other non HD presets and the next button is still greyed out. Very annoying but the good news is that I have successfully uploaded to Vimeo . See  https://vimeo.com/user13747012/videos

                    Next button on YouTube details screen will be enabled once you enter Title and Description .

                      Foxdown,

                       

                      Researching the YouTube issue a bit more, yielded a response from Adobe. Right at the end of 2012, YouTube did make a change in the handling of uploads, but all should have been fixed by about mid-January, 2013.

                       

                      However, and with that said, it seems that as of early Feb, 2013, some Premiere Elements users were still experiencing issues. I wonder if you were able to rectify the issue with the direct uploading from PrE? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

                       

                      Thank you, and good luck,

                       

                      Hunt

                        Thanks Bill

                        Have just created a new clip and tried to upload to PrE but have the same problem  ie the Next button is greyed out.  However now I have discovered I can download using the AVCH setting to Vimeo and then upload the file into Vimeo; I tried the same thing with the YouTube setting and have successfully uploaded to YouTube
