Any way to upload videos to youtube not using a web interface?

I think the question really says it all, but the reason I am asking is I have a video that just won't upload.

I made a smaller version of the video, posted it fine, but after their conversion it looked really crappy. So I tried to upload the bigger one (after removing the original). I thought maybe it's a filename conflict, so I renamed the file, and titled the video differently.

It still won't go.

Any ideas? Tried from three different locations using different machines.

If you have access to a Mac throw it in iMovie and run the export following this guide. iMovie also has a direct to Youtube upload interface but you won't be able to control much on the compression side if you go that route.

Also make sure you are set to always view the high-quality version of YouTube videos. It makes a difference.

Try this free software if you have Windows.

Response by poster: I should have specified I was on a mac. I did get it up there. I don't think it had much to do with the video file (the reason it looked bad). I think it was my youtube settings.

I was hoping for a way to ftp the files up, or an application that did it.

My version of iMovie doesn't seem to support the upload.

No big deal. I did check versiontracker first, but was really hoping for a non-web interface application.

Response by poster: Just a heads up. Found this: vidnik

Seems to also upload none app generated clips. Haven't tested it a lot, but seems kinda cool.
