    Ok I downloaded that package of software to download and upload vids, but im stuck.
    I downloaded a video using video get all was cool, it converted it. Then I used camtasia to put some links in with the callout function. All still going well, it rendered the video then finished. It made a file as a swf file which I think is right. so now I opened the watermark factory, to put a watermark on the video, but it cant find the file that ive just rendered with camtasia. AmI doing something wrong do you think?
    Does watermark factory not support swf files?
    Please help me get my first vid up on youtube.
    Si

    No I don't think it supports swf, maybe flv, but not swf, cus swf isn't a video but flash.
    I'm using Sothink SWF to Video Converter there's a "free" version

    You can watermark your vidz directly in camtasia with the callout function ( I think watermark factory is for watermark in bluk ).

    But yes swf is a bad format, the more generic is .AVI , you can go to flv if you prefer and it's for your own hosting but for uploading on multiple site or doing other work on the vidz go for avi ;)

    So are you saying I have to convert it again so that watermark factory supports it?
    Obviously this is just my first experiment, how long does it take to upload to youtube?, its only like 1.13 mins long, seems to be taking forever.

    yes you can do all directly in camstasia.
    for the upload time it vary depending of your internet connexion speed and the size of your video
