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.
