    Hello again,

    I'm having a strange problem with iMovie08 when I try to upload a video to YouTube. The video is 700mb and about 12 minutes long. I've upgraded my YouTube account to allow 15 minute long videos but iMove keeps telling me that my video must be under 10 minutes for it to allow me to upload it.
    How can I convince iMove that I am right and it is wrong?

    Thanks and love,

    A roundabout way to do it is to export the movie as a local movie file then use QuickTime X to upload to YouTube.

    Thanks Madd, I did indeed just save the movie to my desktop and uploaded it via the YouTube website. But I liked the 'in app' method. If anyone's got a technique for fixing imovie I'd love to hear it.
