    Hey everyone, is anyone else having an issue uploading to you tube. Everytime I try it fails and I get and it says waiting to retry in 1 minute, then waiting to retry in 2 minutes, then 5 minutes. I got a excellent wi-fi connection. Any suggestions. Also what other ways are available to get recorded videos off the phone, I know they can't be emailed or texted, can I get a cable to go straight to the laptop.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi wnytrapper and Welcome to the forums! :D

    1) Yes you can easily connect your handset to the PC using the USB and transfer videos , pictures etc on and off the phone

    Don't forget to mount : Plug in the USB -> Drag down the white notification box -> Click Mount card

    2) The reason you are probably having problems is the video File may be too large ??? {Someone experienced the same problem the other day & found it was the size}

    You could always try uploading a small short video to see if it then uploads properly , but if I'm uploading I prefer via my PC :)

    Hope this helps

    Carl

    I've successfully uploaded and 11mb (30sec) file and a 33mb (1m30s) file to youtube. Both did say 'waiting for wifi' to begin the upload. Once on wifi away they went. Youtube's encoding process has gotten faster, within a minute of the completed upload they were live for viewing.

    having the same issue today with a 3 minute (68mb) clip failing on upload. It won't even start, it shows 0% then 'waiting to retry' with a upload failed message in the task bar. I think there's some sort of size limit.

    has anyone else had success uploading to youtube with files larger than 33mbs?

    This is ridiculous! I love my Android phone, but I don't think the iPhone has these kinds of buggy problems. This is not a unique edge case that Google wouldn't have though to test - we're just trying to upload a video! I have a great wifi signal, router is 10 feet from my phone, but my upload keeps stopping for some reason. I run into a lot of other annoying bugs on Android, too. I'm on 2.2, not some old release!
