you tube is taking hours to upload my video. What's a better project setting for a faster upload? It's been 3 hours processing the upload. My current setting is HDV 1440x1080. 30 frame. I saved it as AVCHD in the "computer" part of "publish/share" to upload manually from my video folder. Windows 8, i5, Elements 11
At those settings, you file is pretty big -- and interlaced.
So instead use Publish & Share/Computer/AVCHD but select the preset for HD YouTube. This will produce a YouTube-optimized file for upload. (YouTube does have a time limit, however. So make sure your video is no longer than 15 minutes.)
