Ok so I just finished my first video with Adobe Preimere Elements 8 and to upload it to youtube it looked like I had to click on share and then click on share online, then on youtube. I did that but then when it gave me the estimated time remaining it said 3 and half hours ubntil the upload was finished. I was wondering, is it supposed to take that long, and does the length of the video and the number of effects used make a difference on the time needed to upload a video?
Depends on how long your video is!
Meantime, the FAQs to the right of this forum suggest an alternative way to load to YouTube that often nets much better results.
