    I'm getting really frustrated right now, so before I throw my fucking fist through my computer's.... and break my god-damned iphone.... I figured i'd start a post, asking for help :D

    Basically, I got Camtasia 6.0, made a BAD ASS video for youtube.... went to upload it, and for some reason, it won't upload?!?!

    It'll go for like 20 minutes, and then say something like "wrong format" or something... and I can't find anywhere online to change the video format (none of them are working properly)...

    SO...BHW, could you PLEASE help me??

    I don't want to purchase a new laptop.... or a screen...

    just go to download.com or sourceforge and find an app that will convert your video format to something useable like flv or wmv or avi or whatever.

    ...Or better yet, break your iphone.

    what is the extension of file are you trying to upload? and how large is it?

    You should resize and save the file as wmv to make it as small as possible right from camtasia to save time on upload and to be in correct format.

    I'm not able to upload any clips in high quality at the moment. I could about a week ago, apparently I'm not the only one who is having this problem. It might be Macintosh related.

    You can put it in the right format through Camtasia. Just open up the project and then under "file" click on "produce video as". Use the custom setting and set it up as Youtube suggests.
