Editing videos with iMovie on your Mac is fun and easy, but how do you share them with the world? Many people choose to upload videos to YouTube from iMovie. This is a pretty good idea but how can we upload iMovie videos to YouTube?
Looking for some efficient solutions on how to upload videos to YouTube from iMovie for sharing on Mac Yosemite? It seems that this job could be a little hard for us to complete, right? Without the professional video converter assistant to help us to convert iMovie videos to YouTube suitable formats, we will be trapped in this situation. Let’s see why and how.
To begin with, YouTube is the most popular website where we can upload our favorite videos to it for sharing online with other people. However, YouTube only supports videos in AVI, FLV, MPEGPS, MPEG4, MOV, 3GP and WebM formats for uploading. As is shown above, MOV is supported by YouTube, but why can’t we still upload iMovie recorded MOV videos to YouTube?
Search from iMovie official website, we can learn that Apple InterMediate Codec (AIC) (*.mov) is the format of recorded videos. And this AIC MOV is not compatible with YouTube. So, some MOV videos with different codec may cause this issue. In other words, YouTube accepts some MOV videos but it totally doesn’t accept AIC MOV recorded by iMovie. The following we need to solve is the problem of incompatibility. If you want to upload iMovie videos to YouTube, the first thing you need to do is converting AIC MOV to YouTube best accepted format. To maintain the conversion quality, you’d better use third party software. Here, Pavtube Video Converter for Mac is highly recommended. With it, you can convert AIC MOV to FLV in an easy way. Just several simple clicks, you can get the work done and you can get much more unexpected features from the wonderful application!
