Help uploading WMP project to you tube

  collinsc 14:46 01 Dec 2007

I have created a WMP project and want to upload to youtube but it says it does not like the format... which is the standard extension it gave the project: .MSWMM

any suggestions??

Go back into WMP and save it as a WMV file, YouTube accepts those. Backup the project file as well, in case you want to do more work on it later.

thank you. what is the difference in formats then?

  MAJ 15:46 01 Dec 2007

One is a video format (wmv), the other isn't.

when i select "save as" there are no other options in the format box...!


is it because i did it as a "project"..?

As you've ticked the resolved button, I don't know whether you have it sorted or not, collinsc.

sorry, i read the advice and thought it was resolved, but then when i tried... i could not find how to save to the other format.

i still need help, thanks..

Another update..

I think i have found how to change the format.. i had to publish it rather than just saving..

however, i would still like to know the best format for youtube... there are lots of "video quality" options... what is standard? any youtubers out there?

Open your project (mswmm) in WMP and go to File > Save Movie file. Choose your desired output settings in there, i.e. size of video and format (wmv, rather than avi, would be better for file size).

But i dont get the option to save format until i publish, and there are about 8 options! i wondered if any youtubers knew the best save format through their experience.
