    Why does it take longer than 2 hours to upload a 3 minute HD video to youtube?
    my settings are all the highest quality, movie to quick time movie, best quality, etc. I go to upload it on youtube and it takes LONGER than TWO HOURS. sometimes even four!

    Other people that have the same settings as me, only said it takes around 6 minutes, and my video is 3 minutes long. I have fast internet. no other programs running, or anything. my macbook is fine, it just takes FOREVER.

    How big is your file that you're uploading (not length, file size)?
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)

    What type of Internet connection do you have? It's possible that your upload speeds are just very low.
