Encoding for youtube

hello there,
I am trying to upload to Youtube but it says that it needs to be a sertain format. I have been editing my videos with mp.4 but it isn’t working. PLease help. Thanks

YouTube accepts many formats. It does not need to be in any one certain format. If you click Export > Export File and output an MP4 without choosing a preset or setting any options, it will work.

As of version 16.06, there is now a preset named YouTube in the Export panel’s list of presets. While not necessary, I think it will help people. Even an intermediate, but infrequent user might have to think awhile about what to do when presented with the Export panel. Not everyone realizes that you can opt to not change anything and simply click Export File.
