What version of Premiere Elements are you using and on what computer operating system is it running?
Can you export your specific Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then successfully upload that saved file to YouTube at the YouTube web site?
What is the file size/duration of the Timeline that you want to upload to YouTube using the Premiere Elements feature for the upload?
Have you refreshed the preference for Online Service under Edit Menu/Preferences/General and Web Sharing?
Is you Internet connection OK? Have you cleared the browser's Option/Advanced/Network and its Cached Web Content?
Please review and consider, and then we can decide what next.
Thank you for responding to my message.
I have Premiere Elements 12.
I have tired the Edit Menu/Preferences/General and Web Sharing, but didn't work. All the other suggestions you mentioned I haven't tired, so I will get back to you when I have.
I've tried to save the finished rendered video to the computer then upload directly to youtube but the file type isn't correct, and I don't know how to convert it. the video is 14 mins long and 1.82MB in size.
I've checked the internet connecting and settings which are fine and I have also refreshed the preference for Online Service under Edit Menu/Preferences/General and Web Sharing.
Please could you advise.
Thanks again. H
Please describe the export settings for the file saved to the hard drive and which is subsequently uploading to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
Be advised that the Youtube feature within Premiere Elements has limit of 2 GB file size/15 minute duration. Your actual file size and duration
may be exceeding those limits.
Even if you have an extended time account at YouTube, it cannot be used within the Premiere Elements built in feature.
And, if you go to YouTube with a file for upload there, you will need to apply for an extended account before being allowed to upload
more than 2 GB/15 minutes. All that is my current understanding of that situation. Check YouTube for details.
As a test, you could cut the file down to 10 minutes and see if you then can upload that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
The other part of the matter is what are your export settings to generate this file?
If you are not already...please select
with an appropriate MP4 preset choice - H.264 1920 x 1080p30 or YouTube Widescreen HD.
Then upload that to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
Also try the 10 minutes cut down Timeline in an upload to YouTube from within the Premiere Elements YouTube feature.
We will be watching for your results.
I work thank you.
Thanks for the update.
I am assuming that the workaround is working where you export your Timeline to a file saved to the computer hard drive and then upload that file to YouTube at the YouTube web site.
But, since you posted last (January 2015) have you gotten the Premiere Elements built in YouTube feature to work for you?
