YouTube announced it supports a long list of video formats including MOV, MP4, AVI, WMV, FLV, Webm although, when upload MOV files to YouTube
, we would get an error message like "The video has failed to process". What caused the issue? Any way to get MOV files upload to YouTube correctly? Just read this article and you can find out the reason and the best solution.
The reasons behind this strange issue are YouTube only supports videos with special codec. For instance, not all types of MOV files can be uploaded to YouTube, but only MOV files with H.264 and AAC audio codec can uploaded to YouTube. To upload MOV clips to YouTube successfully, you have to convert MOV to YouTube supported formats first. Here an easy-to-use and yet powerful tool- Brorsoft Video Converter
is introduced to you.
This video converter is specialized in converting videos among various formats like MOV, MKV, FLV, MP4, WMV, VOB, MPEG, AVI, etc. With it, you can fast change the MOV format to YouTube FLV.

Convert and Upload MOV to YouTube
Step 1. Import MOV files
> Lunch the MOV to YouTube converter; drag & drop MOV files to it. Or click the Add video button to locate the files you want to add. Note that batch conversion is supported so you can add as many files as you like at one time.
Step 2. Select output format
> Click Format bar to select an output format. To share your MOV movies on YouTube, .avi, .3gp, .flv, format from Common Video are all the proper formats. You can also press the Settings button to adjust the video size, bitrate, frame rate, audio sample rate, etc to optimize the quality.
Step 3. Start the conversion
> Click "Convert" button to start converting MOV video for uploading to YouTube. After the conversion, click "Open" button to get the exported files and then upload the converted MOV files into YouTube for sharing with your friends, families, and fans.
If you've re-encoded your MOV files, but YouTube still can't support it, the only thing we can think of is that you haven't gone through the account verification process, which is required to post video over 15 minutes in duration. In this case, we should highlight the trim function on this software. Just click "Edit" to trim the MOV videos to get the very part you want. Besides trimming, cropping, adding watermark, adjusting special effect, are well supported as well.
That, or there's a flag on your account indicating that it's not in good standing (if you go to your video manager page on YouTube, check to see if you have any videos with copyright claims flagged on them).
