    Hey, so today I decided to start promoting my website by uploading videos to YouTube, but I keep getting this error after uploading:

    "This video is a duplicate of a previously uploaded video."

    I upload the same video many times, but everyone with a different file name.
    For example: Video_1 Video_2 Video_3
    I also tried: fdasfsd jklfjksda njkfdsa and stuff like these.. but nothing seemed to work.

    I get only about 3/20 videos without this error...

    Does anyone know how to get through it?

    Thanks and happy new year :)

    You cannot change name lol, you need to edit the video.

    I used to promote my website 3 months ago with the same method (Changing the file name) and it worked fine without any problems.
    I use "YouTube Video Uploader" by the way.

    You can use MVB or Video Spin Blaster to make the video unique. Its working like charm :)

    Hmm, isn't there any other way? 47$ a month is too much for me right now :S

    1. Download this: http://www.mediafire.com/?139n9vscaobr92r
    2. Open it.
    3. Press "..." (browse)
    4. Find your video file
    5. Press file in the menu, and press Change MD5 OR Ctrl+M

    And you have yourself a unique video and the same frames/length. Just 1 byte bigger.

    Thanks so much! It works very well, uploaded 4 videos so far, and all are fine :):)
    I wanted to give REP as well, but it says that I must spread my rep before giving it to SpK again -.-'
    Huge thanks anyway.
