Video Furrustrashuns!

Mom wuz practicin' wif her crafty video, to learn how to upload it to da You Tube, so she can share da linky on herz crafty blog.  Den, she would haff all da skills she needs to put our video up.  Howefurr, der haz been a delay.

Da furst time she tried to upload it, it took over an hour, and then when it looked as if it had finished, and she hit 'play,' she got a message dat said, "Rejected:  too long."  Okay, well, it wuz too long, an she knew dat, kind of.  But da instruckshuns did not specifically say you could not upload longer than 10 minute videos--dey only said 'for best viewing.' 

So mom wuz furry mads, becuz she has watched videos on der dat are longer than 10 minutes.  Humph!  So, she left it go fur a day or two, and den did a re-edit, and cut it down, and tried again. 

This time, is said it wuz an 'invalid file type" or sum such nonsense.  So, mom looked up in da 'help' stuffs, and found a explanashun fur dat, and fixed dat problem.  Then, she uploaded da new edit again.  It went faster, but after it said 'success!' and she went to see the 'my videos' menu, it said, 'processing; please wait.  So, she went owt to her karate lesson, and when she came back, offurr an hour later, it still said da same thing.

She wuz getting furry upset.  So, she thot she would try da 'play' button, and again, up in her face with the 'Rejected:  too long' stoopid message.  What The Hisss????   Too long???  Has to be not offurr 10 minits, and now she haz it edited down to only 7 minits and a few sekkinds?  How kin it still be too long???!!!

Then, she looks up at all da info, an fur sum stoooooopppid reason, da You Tube is NOT reading da new edited length, but only seeing da 'raw file data' and the original 28-minit length!!  Mom iz not happy rite now!  She could not find anyfing abowt dis in da 'helps,' so she put owt a post on da You Tube forum help board, but haz not got any ansers yet.

Does any of our furrineds know how to fix dis problem?    Mom is a techie dummy, an she is furry frustrated wif dis process.  An we are gittin impatient fur our video to be posted!!

Signed, Munchie

We don't use youtube ever - we only see videos from it when they are posted on other blogs. Normally we'd ask our mom but she doesn't use it ever either. We hope your mom gets it figured out soon because we can't wait much longer to see a video of you all! We send her lots of good luck purrs!!

We not can help either, but we sure understands the sassin-frassin when things not work the way you wants them to.
We thinks your mommy is very patshunt to keep trying.
We can't wait to see your video.

We had huge problems with that too, so we converted ours to another format and made sure it was less than 10 minutes long.

YouTube STILL refused it so we hosted it on Blogger.

You can see the final result here:

We don't usually use you tube, but we've never had that trouble. We use Vimeo and it works great for us. We hope someone can help so the video can get posted!! We know it must be furry frustrating for your mom!
