View Full Version : [ubuntu] You Tube Upload Problem?

May 30th, 2010, 03:03 AM
Tried uploading a couple MP4 files on You Tube with Ubuntu.
They won't go through. UTube says the format is not supported and has to be converted to one UTube uses.

Out of curiosity I rebooted into Win7 and tried uploading the exact same MP4 files and UTube accepted and posted them with no problem!

Anyone have any idea why this happened?

W7 did the uploads OK but the same files get rejected when Ubuntu is used.

I've had this problem before with Ubuntu but never pursued it.

This time I just drag and dropped these MP4s into the Windows partition to give it a try and they uploaded with no problem using W7.

are you using FF or IE on the windows side

just a thought, you could install IE on ubuntu
(it's possible don't ask me why I know)

I use Opera or Chrome on both Ubuntu and W7.

Opera worked with W7 but not with Ubuntu for the UTube upload.

I almost never use IE anymore.

Can anyone help?
I'm having the same problem. I can upload files with Windows using FF but not with Ubuntu.
I have Karmic and use FF.
