Problem on You Tube

Can anyone explain what has happened to my friends video uploaded today. It was created in Pinnacle 15 and saved as an FLV file and then uploaded. I know the time taken to upload it was over 3 hours which is extraordinary for a 7 minute video.   He had tried earlier uploading direct from Studio 15 to You Tube,  but that also took about the same time and then failed.

Re: Problem on You Tube
Had he checked the FLV file played OK before uploading?

The question is, why is this one crap and the other one he uploaded on the 23rd just fine? What did he do differently between then and now?

What settings is he using?

Really hard for us to troubleshoot without some details.

Re: Problem on You Tube
Personally I have always had huge problems with FLV files for upload to You Tube etc and tend to use H264 these days as it seems to work far better.
 
1280x720p at 5mbs seems to be the best balance of quality over speed but a bit rate of 1.5mbs is also OK.

Re: Problem on You Tube
Thanks both for your interest. To answer Gary’s point about FLV and You Tube, I have never had a problem with FLV and now have around 50 videos up there.
 
However, on to the problem posted, and it gets a bit involved. My colleague (let’s call him ‘A’) makes several videos as a member of a local video club. ‘A’ makes this video and then thinks a voice over might complete the job. ‘B’ undertakes to do this and all is well. The club then feel that the project could go onto the club website and here I come into it as the so-called Webmaster.  I visit ‘A’ and the project is on his Pinnacle time line so I show ‘A’ (again) how to put the video onto You Tube.  I don’t use Pinnacle so first tried to upload using the programme (this failed) and then did it my usual way of FLV. 
 
This all worked fine but I soon discovered when back at home that the version uploaded and played fine was ‘A’s original and NOT the version with the voice over made by ‘B’. So here is what actually took place.
 
‘A’ made his video, then made a DVD of it and took the disc to ‘B’ who then copied it back into his Pinnacle. ‘B’ then added his voice over and made yet another DVD which ‘A’ took home. I arrive again and copied this new DVD onto ‘A’s Pinnacle. From there I tried to upload to You Tube, which failed after about three hours.  I returned to ‘A’ and made the FLV file and this played perfectly well on his PC.  I set his machine to upload again to You Tube and returned home. This once more took about 3 hours, but when I looked on You Tube during the evening the video is there but when played is seen at once to be no b***** good at all.
 
I can see already that your replies (if any) will say “Serves you right!”.  Pete.
