Anyone do it?  I uploaded a video yesterday (this one, if anyone cares: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=mGX5pkKV6iw ) -- everything worked great, I go an alert from iMovie that the upload was successful and shortly an email from YouTube acknowledging it as well.


Today, I tried uploading another piece from the same concert -- no alert or error from iMovie, no acknowledgment from YouTube, nothing on the site.  A couple of hours later, I tried again -- nothing.  iMovie has a progress bar that it is being uploaded, the progress bar ends, and...


Bizarre.  Should I just reupload via Safari directly to the website, or wait for YouTube because ...???


Advice appreciated!

Hold on tightly, let go lightly.

I've never had it stall like that.  I don't get emails from YouTube, though, just the pop-up from iMovie that the upload has completed.


You can go to your YouTube profile and maybe see if it is uploaded there.

I tend to upload from the website, since google's two-step authentication makes it confusing to get iMovie connected to YouTube. I have uploaded from iMovie, and not had it stall, though.

So it was some bizarre, presumably iMovie's fault glitch that went away after restarting iMovie -- but uploading the video via Safari worked and uploading subsequent videos via iMovie work.  If anyone encounters a similar problem, just drop and restart iMovie.
