I asked my hubby who does a lot of this.
He says to have your movie up in Windows Movie Maker, go to file, go down to save movie. He prefers to choose high definition display. It will prompt you to name it. Say save.
Go to Youtube, it will ask you to browse, then you should be able to find your movie and upload it.
If this doesn't work, something else is going on.
Hopefully that helps!

Hiya Justine, I use Windows Movie Maker for all of my YT vids. As soon as I finish creating, editing and saving my vid in WMV, I then take the WMV vid and "Save movie"... "For computer" and that always saves it in am MP4 format which always easily uploads to YouTube.

I never use the "Publish Movie" ... "YouTube" function... it always seems to hang up in YouTube!

Hope this helps.

Okay, saved as MP4 and still get this message, grrr!!!
...The .wlmp file type is a project file, not an actual video file.

Sounds great. I always open YT and then start the upload from there. Something else also... after I get the vid up and running on YT, it says something about detecting some shaking or something unstable and asks if I want to let them stabilize the vid... everytime I've said yes, YT has messed up the vid and I've had to upload the video again. Just a bit of a heads-up. Let me know if I can help at all. I love WMM!

I'm wondering if your WMM needs updating. I think I had to reload Windows Movie Maker and then save it again. After taking your original video and opening it in WMM, you "Save the project as" <Name>.Movie Maker Project. Once you do this you should be able to save it as I described above.

If you've done this then check out this thread... http://goo.gl/0t2adM
Like I said, I think I had to do this once or twice.

Hi yes that could be the case because I am still not having any luck, the funny thing is I already have one you tube video up and live which I did six months ago, but I did that on my camera, where as this one has been done on my Iphone :)

My first 5 or 6 videos all came from my Galaxy S5. Sure wish I had a solution for ya'! I'd definitely start with uninstalling WMM through Control Panel>Programs and Features then just download and reload it. Hopefully that'll take care of biz for ya'!

when I save my work to mp4, I then start from my Youtube account and search for my mp4 to upload. Beware - I usually do things the hard way, ... so there might be easier ways. Larry

Hi Larry that is what I am trying to do, it saves as a .wlmp? So I don't know how to convert it, I have gone through tutorials on You Tube and its just not happening for me, :(

mine saves as wmv file, which is recognized by Youtube upload giving me my youtube link. I am using Win7 and am looking forward to Camtasia once I find the spare dollars.
