Youtube - help needed
on: July 01, 2020, 08:57:58 PM
I’m attempting to upload my first un-edited .MOV video onto YouTube but every time I try it seems to uploads OK but then gets to 99% of processing when it states “unable to SAVE as it’s too long” yet it is only about 20 mins long. How can this be when I see videos on YouTube of over 2 hours.
If anyone can offer any advice I’d be most grateful.

files can be quite large but if you specify a lower resolution, say 720p instead of HD etc it will be a lot smaller. As for longer videos they may be posted by people that pay for an account where the upload size limits and frequency of uploads are less restrictive. you could try Vimeo?

Hi Dave,
Ive got a few films on Youtube and dont ever recall having an issue like that, there maybe something in what Ians saying but ive never come across anything saying that i have a time or file size restriction.

I have a recollection that i have to convert the file to something Youtube likes? Its so long since ive done it i cant remember for sure. Sorry mate.

Have you verified your YouTube account ? Otherwise you're limited to uploads that are no longer than 15 minutes:
