How to Upload MP4 to YouTube Effortlessly
Can't upload MP4 to YouTube? Like most of people, maybe you have such a tiresome experience. When you try to upload one of your MP4 videos to YouTube for sharing with people all over the world, it tells you the server can't recognize the file format, but you've successfully done it before. It's very confused, isn't it?
MP4 is a multimedia container format with video and audio streams inside. The main difference is in the way that the video and audio streams are stored, but it's still a MP4 file. However, YouTube just only accepts the MP4 file with the specific audio and video codecs. That's the reason.
So, if you have some MP4 videos that you can't upload to YouTube, you have to convert MP4 to YouTube accepted format. The best way to do it is to find a powerful tool that can let you directly generate a YouTube-friendly format with no need to do any setting manually. For this, Wondershare Video Converter ( Video Converter for Mac ) is a great help. Just with three simple clicks, it can help you upload any MP4 file to YouTube with fancy effect.
What's more, YouTube can only accept a file not more than 10 minutes. For a big MP4 file, you can also use this great app to cut it to the specific length. See the detailed guide below.
