    first of all youtube accepts only .flv files, proof is whenever you download a youtube video it has the extension of .flv

    so if you are about to upload a video first prepare the video and then convert it, you must need something like "free flv converter v5" it is a free software and download it from google

    if you want to download from youtube then you must need "youtube downloader"

    Using Movie Maker, which can be found on almost all PCs

    Drop and drag in your song

    Then add the pictures


    Don't save the project then try upload the project, it is the wrong format

    Hope that helps

    Youtube accepts certain video formats like avi, mpg, mov, wmv and mpeg4. I think the video that you attempting to upload might not be in any of the above formats.

    Now, you can convert your video to the above formats by using a video converter. You can download Any Video Converter(freeware) and convert it to any of the above formats .

    For best quality on Youtube, encode the video to mpeg4 with minimum resolution of 640x480 pixels.

    Ensure the file format is correct before uploading to youtube...

    Using windows movie maker -- you have to save it into the proper file format, that is "wmv" file (use the "save movie file" on the menu at the top left) before upload..

    The WMV file will be smaller in size but still quite good quality.. so uploading it will be faster.

    --for best editing....

    use windows movie maker (included in your windows machine)... it can help you make beautiful slideshow or video clip(e.g. mixing your songs with pictures/video/etc).... then save it as video file such as wmv file format... finally upload.

    or .. Just get those clips you want , save & convert them, and then mix/match with pix/sound/etc using windows movie maker to create new masterpieces....

    this will help you.... Use 'zillatube'. This is the easiest (and also the fastest) way.

    Zillatube produces mpg/mp3 formats from youtube that are compatible with windows movie maker(or media player), and more.

    It is very easy to download and convert videos. Then edit those converted mp3/mpg videos with windows movie maker... save your file as wmv and then upload.

    It works very well....just google search for "zillatube"
