My video file is in avi format. Its 560mb but only 31 seconds (yes, it is pretty high quality). I’ve try re-uploading it a couple times and it always get rejected saying it cannot be convert. Is there anyway to fix this?Or what video format should i convert to that still keep the quality but also acceptable on youtube?

Essentially what’s happening is that YouTube is not designed to tackle anything close to uncompressed Hi Def footage. In truth, you’re just wasting time trying to upload so large a file, as even the best quality is gonna get crunched.
For me, I save my files as mpeg 2 files in either 720 or 1080 resolution.
Bottom line, don’t bother uploading files that large. A good mpeg file will be 1/1000th that size, and the quality will still beat what YouTube is gonna do to it.

avi is just a container…could be anything
read youtube’s suggestions for uploading…they change periodically
then you can come back and tell everyone that’s interested in youtube…both of them

From what I heard, YouTube supports virtually every existing video file format. Youtube may not approve of nearly uncompressed video, so that bandwidth (and/or server space) is not wasted.
Personally, I would use MPEG-2 or AVC MP4 if possible as your export format.

MPEG always worked best for me

For the highest quality, YouTube now recommends the following setting for your video:
MPEG4 (DivX, Xvid, H.264) format
128k Mono or 320k Stereo MP3/AAC audio
24,25 or 30 frames per second
Up to 1GB file size and 10 min. duration
YouTube accepts a wide range of video file formats such as .WMV, .AVI and .MOV but you may get the best results from converting your file to MPEG4 video with MP3 audio.So you can use Moyea video converter for mac to convert your AVI to
MPEG4 video with MP3 audio.

MP4 and FLV is suitable for YouTube upload.

In order to share AVI movies on YouTube, the first thing is to encode AVI to FLV, MP4 file type that YouTube likes. What’s more, to add AVI to YouTube for displaying correctly, we also need to set the proper video resolution, frame rate…
