    Don't know if anyone has had this happen to them, but when you upload the same video too youtube you will get this error saying "duplicate video uploaded" or something like that. When this happens your videos wont go live.

    (These instructions are for windows users)

    Its really simple all you do is go to the video file your trying to upload and change the file name (example.wmv to example123.wmv). Next step go to your video file and Left click on your mouse and go to "Properties". After you have done this click on "Summary" tab and change the Title to something different. Thats it!!!!

    Hope this helps somebody :D

    changing the title will not help
    youtube records a unique video id after each video upload
    therefore, it can identity the same video even with a different title

    the solution is by slightly editing the video, adding a few frames or changing the format

    Thanks for that tip, I'll be trying that instead of reconverting from WMV to MPEG to WMV.
