    You can upload via iM09. I'm not sure what HD setting it might be using. You can also use the upload capability of UT after exporting an HD file from iM09 to a folder. One of my guides might be helpful for you.

    casper69,

    I would save the video from iMovie to a file and upload that. That limit sounds like it is specific to iMovie 09. I'm basing that on the YouTube note that says 2GB is allowed.

    Imovie 09/.mts/youtube
    Hi xstep,

    Based on your responses and tutorial (thanks), it seems I should go ahead with my purchase of the Canon Vixia HF200? I want to use it as a family camcorder, but I also want to use it to upload 3 minute instructional videos to youtube. I have a MacAir with whatever version of OSx was originally put on the machine (sorry, not at home so can't check) and iMovie 09.

    I can likely use lower res settings when doing my instructional videos, but I've read varying things on how hard it is to get .mts files onto youtube. I would also want to edit the video, which I'm guessing I could easily do once I've converted them into iMovie (.avi?)

    As you can tell, am not a techie. Any advice would be helpful.
    -P

    I haven't used an HF200 (I'd like one). It looks like it is compatible with iMovie 09. See their list.

    iMovie 09 will import the MTS files from the camera to a format that iMovie can handle for real time editing. You then upload your project either via an iMovie option, or by exporting the project and uploading it via YT's web interface.

    I don't see anywhere on the YouTube help page where MTS is a supported format.

    Here is the short story for using iMovie 09.
    1.) record to the camera (in its native format).
    2.) connect the camera to your Mac.
    3.) startup iMovie (editor) and choose the import from camera option. Clips appear in Events.
    4.) Create a project..
    5.) Drag content from Events to your project.
    6.) Fine tune, add effects, transitions, extra audio, etc.
    7.) Export for public showing.

    Apple has tutorials online via the iLife page that shows you how this should all work.

    Thanks Xstep!
    Thanks so much! You're awesome. Your steps echo what I've pieced together about the process. I'm so excited to get the video camera (not excited on the $$ I'll be out).

    Thanks again for taking the time to help!
