Upload trouble

We've seen posts reporting that the upload button is failing for many of you- especially users using Firefox as their web-browser. The team here has been informed of the situation and is currently trying to resolve the matter.

In the meantime, as a temporary fix, you could try switching to a different web-browser in order to upload files from your computer to our site. This may help you upload videos without encountering the bug.

We really appreciate your reports informing us of the situation and your patience as the team fixes the issue.

Thanks everyone!

  1. Ok, so you switched the order of comments on full-view from newest to oldest. Congratulation. But then why is there a "newest" link at the bottom for the newest page, and "oldest" link at the bottom for the older?

    Seriously, are the programmers for this website mentally retarded?

  2. I have uploaded a new video with iMovie a couple of times and it never shows up. When the upload finishes it points me to my http://www.youtube.com/user/NickySmithGbro URL. The video is just 6 minutes long and size is acceptable. I receptly updated iMovie and suspect there might be a problem. Anyone else having iMovie upload problems since yesterday?

  5. I want to upload a video of my dog doing a funny trick but the system won't let me signup for an account. I keep getting this message "Sorry. Based on the information you have submitted to us, you are ineligible to register for YouTube.com."
    I have tried at least 50 times and still same message. What the hell am I suppose to do?

    I am the only person using the IP Address from my computer. This all seems futile. :(
