    Need some help here please. No matter what I try doing I can not publish videos to YouTube from my iPhone 5.

    I have a 3min video and going into my photo album from the iPhone I select the publish to YouTube option. I have logged into my account, it prepares the video and says its starting the upload but then fails with the error "Could not publish"

    If I log in to YouTube from my desktop I can see the video in my pending videos but of course it has not been uploaded so its only the title not the content.

    I am doing this all over WiFi and trying to upload in HD.

    FYI - After doing a lot of searching I fixed this problem.

    Strange solution - film a very short video (3 seconds) and upload via the iPhone which worked!

    From there I am able to upload any other video including the 3min video I was having issues with.

    I'm having this issue on my Verizon iPhone 5. Everything I try to upload, no matter what length, HD or standard. I get a "Could not publish _____ to YouTube" box.
