Export a File to YouTube Consistently Fails

Ted Strauss

Recommended Posts

I am trying to export a 9 minute video to YouTube.  It goes through the first phase of the export successfully, but when it starts the actual uploading, I consistently get a "Failed" notice after about 11.5%.

Help!  What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps nothing.  A direct upload test was successful here.  This may be a YT (temporary) issue.  Does the project play well when exported to a video file?

If so, try uploading that result with their uploader... https://tinyurl.com/nw9bas34

If you share the project, someone here will test a direct YT upload.

The process is easy, quick and can be done privately.  Just follow these steps...

  •     Back up --- With your project on the timeline, click on MENU at the top-left.  Click FILE|BACK UP PROJECT FILES TO FOLDER.  Choose a folder and SELECT FOLDER.
  •     Upload ---  Use a free server - Google Drive, MS OneDrive, etc.* - to upload the saved, numbered FOLDER.    Do NOT upload the individual VPJ or export file. 
  •     Get link --- Get a public link.  If using Google Drive click GET SHAREABLE LINK. If necessary change "restricted" to "anyone with the link can view" 
  •     Share ---     Click COPY LINK | DONE.  Paste that link here, or click the folder at the top-right of this forum to message it privately to me.  It won't be shared.

          *    Before uploading, right-click the folder, click PROPERTIES.  Look at the File Size to confirm that it's not too big for the free space on the server.
