If you have used YouTube to upload videos, you probably know that this is a fairly easy process as long as the video is of a small size and in compatible format. YouTube accepts video files from almost all digital cameras, camcorders and even cell phones with extensions .wmv, .mpg, .mp4, .mov, .avi, .flv and lots of other ones.
Just recently, I was trying to upload one of the videos I created but faced a huge problem. Since I used Ultra HD Flip video camera for the video; final copy was in .mp4 format and the video size turned out to be 280 megabytes. Now, this is considered huge by YouTube standards.
I tried uploading the video multiple times but it just wouldn’t happen. There may be several factors involved in this but I know for damn sure that one of the problems was my video size. Other factors could have been the internet speed, traffic on YouTube, other people trying to upload videos at the same time and so on.
Even in YouTube, the tutorial videos on this were hardly applicable because the information provided was too old and outdated or just simply didn’t work for large video files.
As I was googling about this, I came across a downloadable software for PC computers called the Free Studio Manager. Finding this software was such relief as I could easily convert my .mp4 video file into .flv format. .flv is the flash file format YouTube readily supports. Not only that, flash files can be uploaded on YouTube in a jiffy. And what more can I say; this software is free and safe for my computer.
I want to show you a step by step guide on how this is done in this video:
