YOU DON’T NEED ANY DOWNLOADER OR CONVERTER. SOME OF THE PEOPLE
ANSWERING YOUR QUESTION ARE REALLY DISGUISED SALESPEOPLE TRYING
TO “SUCKER” YOU INTO BUYING THEIR BOGUS AND UNNECESSARY PROGRAM.
If you’re using Windows Movie Maker, there
is the possibility that by mistake you saved
your video as an “.MSWMM” file with “Save
Project”. If your video editing is finished and
you’re indeed ready to upload it, you should
be saving your video as a “.WMV” file using
→ “Save Movie File” (if you have Win XP) or
→ “Publish Movie” (if you have Vista).
There is a ton of difference between the first
example and the other 2. MSWMM is not a
true video, but really a “work-in-progress”. If
you’d like to upload a video to YouTube that
won’t give you the dreaded “Failed” or “error”
message, simply do one of the 2 alternative
methods above, or consider the following as
the ideal way to save and upload your video:
1 R12; click the blue “Tasks” icon…..(you’ll get the “Movie Tasks” menu)
2 — click “Finish Movie”, the 3rd option…..(it will expand to 5 choices)
3 — click “Save to my Computer”….(the “Save Movie” wizard appears)
4 — enter the name of your movie….(it is best to save in “My Videos”)
5 — click “Next” at the bottom…..(you’ll see the “Movie Setting” page)
6a — for regular video, click “Best quality for playback”…..(the default)
6b — for 16:9, click “Show more choices”, then tweak it until 640×360
7 — click “Next” at the bottom…..(the saving might take quite a while)
8 — click “Finish” at the bottom…..(your video is saved the good way)
YouTube recommends your video format be
MPEG-4 at 480×360 recorded together with
sound in MP3 audio, all at a rate more than
24 frames per second. For 16:9 widescreen,
the dimensions of YouTube’s “Flash” player
are exactly 640×360. Other file formats that
are readily accepted by YouTube are: MOV,
MPG, AVI, and WMV — which is the format
for Windows Movie Maker.
