    Are you trying to export your movie directly to YouTube?

    Try exporting it as a quicktime movie first, and then upload that file to YouTube.

    That's what I do and I've never had a problem.

    Madmic23 is right -- that's the best idea. The other possibility is that your YouTube login name or password are incorrect. Validate them by signing into YouTube.
