    Don't despair!!! It will work. I did the same thing and got the same error mesage at first! All you have to do is resave it in Windows movie maker differently. Hang on. I will look and see what I did....

    Okay: go back to Movie Maker and open up your movie project. Go to Edit and click "Save movie file"... you get a window asking where and how to save it. Save it "on my computer" ("save movie for playback on your computer"). Then upload THAT file to Youtube. It has to be a .mpg or a .wmv file. You cannot upload a "Windows Movie Maker PROJECT" file because that is the file type that only the Movie Maker can read. You have to save it as a file that is more universal.
    Good luck

    You could skip the editing and just download directly from camera to youtube. I believe that's an option they offer.
