    I just uploaded my first gopro video on YouTube. I mainly uploaded it for family and I think it turned out fine for what I was trying to accomplish. I used iMovie on my Mac and uploaded directly to YouTube from within the application. I uploaded in 720 HD and it worked fine, but my family is only able to view the video on a computer and not their mobile devices (iPads, iPhones, etc). What settings do I need to use within iMovie to upload in a format where anyone can see it regardless of source and in HD?

    Thanks in advance.

    It is YouTube's responsibility to offer the mobile playability.

    Maybe give us a link (here or via PM) to let us test it.

    If your video contains a content ID managed track then it will be blocked from playing on a mobile device.

    Either change the soundtrack to a royalty free track or create a soundtrack yourself in garageband.

    This makes the most sense. I did add music to the video which I am sure has a royalty fee

    the owner of every uploaded video can set if mobile devices are able to watch. Double check your settings. Maybe you forgot a check box.

    This is your issue. Pick smaller artists or use approved licensed music.
