    So, I wanted to make some videos with my sisters Macbook. I have the video, now 3 questions. Can I get the frame rate higher? Can I flip the screen? It is around the wrong way. And to upload it to youtube, should I keep it as .mov or convert it to mp4 or something? Thanks.

    EDIT: It has around 8-10 FPS in the movie,

    I don't think you can increase frame rate, it sounds like wanting to add more pixels in to an image - it just doesn't work. You can flip the screen using iMovie I should think, and just keep it as a .mov, since YouTube converts it to .flv anyway.

    The 4 and a half minute movie was 55 megs though, any way to make it smaller? That would take ages to upload.

    Four and a half minutes for 55MB is actually pretty good considering it's a vid. If it's uploading to YouTube it doesn't take too long really.

    It matters on your internet speed. I could download something in 100 minutes that would take my friend 10 hours.
