How to Upload QuickTime movies to YouTube?

Outline: We provides you the best QuickTime to YouTube converter for your smooth uploading QuickTime to YouTube. 

With QuickTime installed, you may already have lots of QuickTime files stored on your Mac running Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8 Mountain Lion, 10.7 Lion, 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard. And you can use QuickTime Player to publish your media to MobileMe without worrying about formats or resolutions. But sometimes there would be some hurdles to upload them to websites such as YouTube. 

There are two reasons for that. One is you sould make sure your QuickTime video is smaller than 2Gb in size and less than ten minutes in length. If your QuickTime file is larger than 2Gb, you will need to re-export your QuickTime video with the proper settings. Please allow several minutes for your video to upload to YouTube's server, and up to several hours for it to appear in YouTube's search engine. In this case, you can learn the method from the following method: 

Re-Exporting Your QuickTime Video (Over 2Gb in Size) 

Re-open your large QuickTime movie file in QuickTime Pro. 


  • Click "File" > "Export." 
  • Choose the "Movie to QuickTime Movie" option from the "Export" drop down menu. 
  • Click the "Options..." button, located on the right side of the screen. 
  • Make sure the "Video" and "Audio" tabs are checked off and click the "Prepare for Internet Streaming" box near the bottom of the page. Select the "Fast Start" option. 
  • Click "Save" and wait for your QuickTime video to save to your hard drive.

Another reason is MOV format specifies a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, effects, or text (e.g. for subtitles). But YouTube is more compatible with MOV files with H.264 and AAC audio codec. Once your MOV file that you try to upload to YouTube is encoded with other video and audio codec, the case mentioned at the beginning will happen. 

Except the second QuickTime video codec reason is the main one.
