    Same problem!!!

  • creativechar Jan 17, 2009

    Yup, same problem. I thought it was just me until I googled it and found several have the same problem. It doesn't seem to matter if its the required size or smaller, it still appears to be "working" but it just runs and runs until it quits with no upload happening. Then I tried uploading at different times and get this weird "connectin interrupted" error message. I'm wondering if its a "flash recorder" problem but I don't know how to tell if I have a flash recoreder installed. I don't want to just download something and how would I know what is the best kind to have anyway? I've tried to upload a video on other sites and have the same problem so its not just with Facebook....seems to be something we have in common but is more related to our computer software. The question remains, how do I know if I have flash recorder installed/uploaded?.

  • jss743 Jan 21, 2009

    I too have the same problem. Except sometimes it will load like 5% of the video, then just keep refreshing and not go anymore. I don't get because i loaded some videos around Christmas with no problems. Internet security settings maybe?

    im having a similar problem, its goes through everthing then say its not proccessed

  • Anonymous Jan 26, 2009

    Today is January 26th. My wmv (a format accepted by FaceBook, loads, it tells me it is succeddfully loaded, then I get an e-mail moments later telling me it is either the wrong format or some other crock. The video goes on YouTube and MySpace without a hitch. It goes into my blogs...and on any web site...but FACEBOOK.

    They are probably running out of bandwidth and can't tell us they are not taking any more videos!

    When sharing video on Facebook, you are recommended to use the MP4 and MOV format, following are a complete list of the video formats that can be uploaded to Facebook:
    3g2, 3gp, 3gpp, asf, avi, dat, divx, dv, f4v, flv, m2ts, m4v, mkv, mod, mov, mp4, mpe, mpeg, mpg, mts, nsv, ogm, ogv, qt, tod, ts, vob, wmv

    Sometimes, even your video format are included in Facbook supported ist, you may still encounter other uploading issues such as large video file size, long video length, wrong codec, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, etc.

Right here is one of the best ways to do it:
first go onto google and type in something like "download prism video file converter"
then download this (you download it so you can use it over and over again!!)
next once its downloaded open it up
the it will say "add file"
Add your .wmv file then at the bottom left of prism it says "select output" or something like that
then select what you want to be for instance form .wmv to .avi or what ever you want really
then your done go to facebook and upload the video you converted
ive done this myself and it hasnt failed me yet!!! :)

How to rip dvd video to youtube on mac os

Part one : choose a proper video format for youtube

Most of people who have ever uploaded video to youtube came across one of the scentiro: cant upload video to youtube ,or take hours to upload video to youtube.Unfortunately , i am among the one of these kind of people with such bad luck ,and this takes me days to figure out what the problem it is.

For the reason that you cant upload video to youtube is that the video you prepare to upload is not supported by youtue.Go to youtube official documentation for reference. So if you video clip is not in one of these video formats, you cant upload video to youtube obviously.

As for taking hours to upload video to youtube ,the reason is that your video is either too big nor is not in best video format.I have always faced lot of problems in uploading videos to Youtube and eveytime I upload it the video quality has been poor. Since then I always wanted a good balance between video quality and file size.I would recommend following video formats in order to attain the the best quality video for youtube. .

Video Format: MP4/ MPEG/MOV/FLV(MP4 and FLV are my favorites.)
Video Codec: H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4
Audio Codec: MP3 or AAC (stereo channel)

Part two : how to rip dvd to youtube video format

In order to upload DVD movie clips to YouTube, you first need a DVD ripping program to help you extract the video clips from the DVD movie and rip the DVD movie to YouTube friendly video formats like FLV, WMV, AVI, etc. Note: This tutorial only focuses on how to rip DVD movies to FLV format for YouTube video.

Step 1: Free download and install DVD Ripper for Mac.
Step 2: Load DVD to convert to FLV
Insert DVD into your DVD-ROM. Click "Load DVD" button to load your DVD. Just Click "Load IFO" button and press DVD folder or DVD IFO file.

Step 3: Select FLV as Output Format
Use the “Format” on the bottom of the window to control the output format. Click on the toggle to the right of the "Format" label to get format drop-down menu.

Step 4: Change FLV Video and Audio Settings
You can change the Resolution, Encoder, Bit rate and Frame rate of the FLV video and Sample Rate, Channels, Encoder and Bit Rate of the FLV Audio. The size of the FLV file depends a lot on these settings.

Step 5: Select Output Directory
Expand the "Output" panel. Use the "Browse" button to select an output directory.

Step 6: After all the settings, click "Convert" to start the DVD conversion.

Convert the videos to FLV format and upload them.

You don`t need to convert the videos before uploading them, just upload them and YouTube will take care of the rest.
