Video Upload Specs

Youtube will accept AVI, WMV, MOV, and MPG files. However, the video file must be no larger than 100MB, and no longer than 10 minutes. The longer the video, the larger the file will be.

Watching and Deleting Videos

It may take a few minutes to upload your video. You can see the progress with the blue bar. When your video has finished uploading, you can access it in My Videos. If you want to remove the movie, click 'Remove Movie' underneath the video icon in My Videos.
