What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 9 running on?
For Error U43MID207 when using Help Menu/Update....short answer, use the manual route using downloads from Adobe...details below.
What are you trying to update
a. 9.0.1 Update
b. Camera Raw Plug-In
If you are getting blocked from updating via the project's Help Menu/Update, then take advantage of the perk that is not available in very recent version, that is,
update from update files downloaded from Adobe online.
For the Premiere Elements 9.0.1 Update - Windows
For the Premiere Elements 9.0.1 Update - Mac
The following is probably the latest update you are going to get for Camera Raw for version 9.0.
For Windows and the manual route...
YouTube matter will be answer in the next post.
With regard to YouTube uploads to YouTube from within the Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 project....
a. Is your Timeline content within the feature limits of 2 GB 15 minutes. (Note: you cannot use YouTube extended time accounts in the
Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 feature.)
b. Have you shut off your router for about 30 to 45 seconds? Have you cleaned out your browser Options/Advanced/Network/Cached Web Content?
c. Have you verified that you can upload to YouTube at the YouTube web site....export your Timeline content to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then upload that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
d. Where and when in the YouTube feature are you getting the error - authentication, uploading, etc. What specifically does the error message say?
Please review and consider and then we will decide what next.
Thanks for the response. I'm using Windows 8.1 on a 64 bit Operating System.
In regards to the YouTube problem, please see below:
a. My project is 1:30 long and the file size is 3.81 MB (3,997,995 bytes). My YouTube account isn't and extended time account
b. I shut off my Router for 30 seconds last night & cleaned out my browser. I also tried 2 x different YouTube accounts and there was no change.
c. I saved my project as an AVI and uploaded it to YouTube ok. I'm not sure what's involved with exporting my Timeline content & uploading, but I can give that a try.
d. It connects with my account ok (I can see my user name in Elements), but then error comes up after 99% of uploading. It says: "Online services encountered an error. The service will now be terminated or paused if possible."
The link you supplied for manual update worked ok. I haven't logged in yet though.
The update worked, but I still get the YouTube Error. I'm downloading the Camera Raw update now.
Thanks for the follow ups.
Have you gone to Edit Menu/Preferences/Web Sharing and refreshed the Online Services?
Also, would you want to determine if you can upload to Vimeo from within Premiere Elements 9? Or, rather not at this time?
Since the issue started on a weekend and existed for a day, I would give it another day to resolve. And,
in case of immediate need to get a video to YouTube, then do the export of Premiere Elements Timeline to
file followed by upload of that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
Please update on your progress when you get a chance. We will be watching for your progress.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
A just in case note about Camera Raw....
When Camera Raw is installed to Premiere Elements, that allows you to import raw image format and .dng into a project as source media.
But, the Camera Raw editor workspace does not open in Premiere Elements. You need Camera Raw installed to Photoshop Elements for that.
Thanks for your help so far, ATR. Much appreciated.
I'm only halfway through my project, so don't 'need' to be able to upload until a day or two. I'm just uploading as I go now to see how it looks.
I don't have a vimeo account, but I guess I should create one anyway, so will give that a try. later
Can you tell me how to "export Premiere Elements Timeline"?
Thanks for the follow up.
With Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 on Windows 8.1 64 bit, I would suggest that following.
Export a H.264.mp4 file for the upload to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
To do that in 9,
Share/Mobile Phones and Players
Apple iPod and iPhone
and Presets = iPod and iPhone High Quality
Then under the Advanced Button/Video Tab of the preset, customize the Video Tab fields accordingly. The following is only an example.
Your values would be based on your Premiere Elements project settings and the properties of your source media that you imported to the
In my example, I had a 1080p project (1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second).
So under the Advanced Button/Video Tab for the above Share/Mobile Players/Apple iPod and iPhone with Presets = iPod and IPhone High Qulaity
First I set the Level = 5.1 and Profile = High. That gave Frame Width 1920 and Frame Height 1080.
The Bitrate Settings can be adjusted downward to allow for smaller file sizes if file size becomes an issue.
There needs to be a compromise between bitrate and quality and file size. Here I set for Target Bitrate =
32 Mbps (megabytes per second) and Maximum Bitrate = 40 Mbps. The estimated file size for the
export can be seen further down in this Export Settings area. It is cut off at the bottom in my
If your Timeline video is other than the above, please give the project settings and properties of your
source media, and I will suggest other settings for this particular export.
Any questions, please let us know.
