    I am tired of uploading videos from my camera into iMovie, making a compilation, then uploading it to Quicktime (which takes forever and slows down my computer to an extent where almost everything is unusable) then uploading it from QuickTime to youtube just to have the video in 720p. There must be a more efficient and faster way. Is there a way I can just upload my videos directly from iMovie without having them end up as 360p on YouTube? They're of my fish if that makes a difference

    iMovie, if you have a not so old version, has a SHARE menu, from which you can select YouTube as option to share with, and there you can select the export size.

    What iMovie version and Mac OS X version do you have then?


    To find out the version number of an application,

    either switch to that application and go to the
    Menu Bar > "Application Name" > About "Application Name" (Finder is used in below screenshot guide)

    or go to the Applications folder in Finder and use the Get Info window (CMD+I).

    To find out what Mac OS X version you run, click :apple: > About This Mac:
