    Premier Elements 12 Program to save and upload video files and projects as F4V. to YouTube

    Rentz Baptist Church

      I have been using the Premier Elements 12 Program to save and upload video files and projects to YouTube for several months now. In the past couple of weeks, I have encountered a problem. Once I save the project I have edited on my computer with the F4V format option (same one I have been using), and try to upload to YouTube, the video can not be uploaded. Is there a reason why this is happening now when it hasn't in the past? Is the F4V format able to be converted or is it the best option for FLV formats? Is there another option to try without recreating the whole project? Thanks for any help!

          What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 12 running on? For now I will assume Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.

          Have you updated 12 to 12.1 Update using an opened project's Help Menu/Update? If not, please do so.

           

          We would need to know more about your project settings and the properties of your source media, but here is the generalized

          idea...assuming a 1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second project....

           

          1. Try to export your Timeline content to an AVCHD.mp4 file (1920 x 1080 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second or 1280 x 720 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second)

          Publish+Share

          Computer
          AVCHD

          with Presets = MP4 H.264 1920 x 1080p30 or with Presets = YouTube Widescreen HD

          From the computer hard drive save location for this AVCHD.mp4 file, upload the file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.

          Is the upload successful?

           

          What is the estimated file size as well as the known duration of the Timeline content that you want to upload to YouTube from

          within the Premiere Elements feature?

           

          Please review and consider and then we will determine our next troubleshooting steps.

           

          Thank you.

            Computer operating systems is Microsoft Windows XP with X86 based PC (32 bit). I have upgraded to 12.1. Going to try uploading a project / file using the YouTube Widescreen HD presets and see if that works (may be a few days before I can get back to you though on if it was successful or not). File size is anywhere from 2.0 GB to 3.0 GB and duration ranges from 40 minutes to 1 1/2 hour depending on particular file. Thanks for the help.

              Thanks for the follow up.

               

              Just in case note...the Premiere Elements 12/12.1 Publish+Share/Social Websites/YouTube will not process a file size over 2.0 GB/15 minutes even if you have a YouTube account with extended space and duration. So, if your Timeline is exceeding the Premiere Elements 12/12.1 limits for its YouTube feature, then

              you are forced to export your Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive and from there upload the file to YouTube at the YouTube where your extended space and duration account can be used. That account will not work in the Premiere Elements feature. If you have a regular YouTube account, then you will have to apply for an extended space and duration account at YouTube in order for YouTube to process your file size exceeding 2.0 GB and duration15 minutes.

               

              We will be watching for your progress when your schedule permits.

               

              Thank you.
