YouTube Multi-Video Upload tool for Mac

Just saw a post on the FCP-L that YouTube has made its Multi Video Upload tool available for mac users. Here’s the link for the installer. From YouTube’s website:

Multi-Video Upload requires the YouTube Uploader

Have a bunch of videos to upload at one time? We want to make this easier for you!

  • Upload multiple files at once
  • Small install required
  • Each uploaded video is limited to 10 min and 1 GB

The YouTube Uploader is a small piece of software which will allow you to upload multiple videos without having to use the standard upload form.

Glad YouTube finally made this available for us Apple folks. According to Digital Heaven’s Videospace widget 5 minutes of DV NTSC should come in right at the 1024mb file size limit:


No longer do you need to upload an intermediary compression for youtube to recompress and make your movie look like crap. Now, you can upload an anamorphic DV NTSC quicktime file and let youtube create its compression directly from source media. I’ll post results from uploading Jose Gonzalez later tonite…


If you’re experiencing upload problems, check out the troubleshooting post here.

And, if you’d like to learn the optimum compression settings for YouTube’s new widescreen format check out this post.

    Good question Eli. I posted an update here:

    Essentially, don’t use Safari, use Firefox.
