Problem uploading video to youtube


#1

I am trying to upload a video to youtube but I can’t because youtube can’t upload the format .mlt, is there any way to convert it to a supported format?


#2

MLT is a Shotcut project file, not a video format.
You don’t ‘Save’ or ‘Save as’. You ‘Export’ and choose a format, such as .MP4 (or the Youtube specific preset)


#3

Great advice, but what if the export stays at 6% for 10 hours, and this is just a 22 minute video?


#4

Then something is wrong… :slight_smile:
Though I’d like to hear from the thread starter.


#5

Thank you for the answer. I am busy but I will try this ASAP.


#6

Remember, most beginner questions are answered on YouTube :wink:
(Note that Encode is now called Export in recent versions)

Alright I can upload now… but now It’s only uploading 3 minutes of my 1 hour long video.


#8

What ‘it’ would that be? Your computer and your internet connection??
Or do you mean you can ‘export’ now?


#9

Or you don’t have the needed YouTube permission for a long video. I forget what’s needed to do that, but it’s not very hard. Answer a couple of questions and you’re done. As always, Google’s your friend for finding a how-to.

Not a Shotcut problem though :slight_smile:
