View Full Version : iMovie sound glitches when uploading to YouTube

05-19-2017, 11:46 PM

I recorded a song in garageband, exported it and dragged it into iMovie so I could upload the song to YouTube. When I export the project as a mov or mp4 file and watch the video, it sounds great, but when I upload the clip to YouTube, there are several audio "glitches" scattered throughout the video. I've tried multiple times, using mp3's, wav's, aiff's, and acc's for the song, but nothing seems to be working. I also tried the "share to YouTube" function and still had the same problem, even though the clip sounds fine in iMovie playback. It's definitely a YouTube upload problem, but what can I do to fix it? Here's a link to the video, a glitch occurs at the 2 second mark, and again at the 14 second mark on the vocals.


I've uploaded the clip with varying levels of video quality, and still no luck. Sample rate of the song itself (after being exported from garageband) is 44,100, and bits per sample is 16, whatever that means. I don't know if iMovie changes this or not.

Please help!
Thank you

Sounds OK to me. Nothing unusual at 2 or 14 seconds.
