I'm having problem with uploading video's. Every time I try it goes for about 2-3 seconds and then says error. I've tried it a few times with WMV, AVI FLY, etc. I've also tried refrsing many times. If there is anyone that has any clue or idea please let me know.

Well, if it's less than 10 minutes/2GB I'm pretty sure you're set to go. If it's way over, maybe that is what's causing the problem?

You'll probably get more help if you ask at youtube's community help forums (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/youtube?hl=en).

Because most of us here just do this:

With Youtube there are a few things that could be going wrong on either end.
1. Your video is to large or to long it can only be 10 minutes at the most. If it is longer it will upload though it will take much longer. If it is a file size cap issue try to convert the video to a different type of avi pr wmv at is perhaps more compressed then yours.

2. Youtube has a lot of issues these days: Trust me man, they have been editing and changing their site so much it is a wonder anyone can upload these days. Of course that is me talking in the worst case. If they are having trouble then it is on there end and you'll need to wait until they fix the issues.

3. Make sure the upload form is filled out correctly.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask, just shoot me a pm.
