Does YouTube reject Camtasia 9 Files?

Since purchasing Camtasia 9, I have produced 3 videos (1080P) for YouTube. The first one was successful in directly uploading. 2 weeks later I produced a second video that failed to upload. It was a VERY slow render, that when it got to step 2, just completely halted. It took almost 5 seconds for 0.1% to go to 0.2%. Later on, it says "An error occurred and the video did not upload." You can either save the produced video, delete it, or check internet and login credentials. I managed to upload it to YouTube, with it taking 2 hours. Usually direct uploading from Camtasia is 5-10 minutes, and the first video that worked successfully was longer than the second. I assumed something was wrong with the video as it did not work from a new document/recording either. The third video I just recorded yesterday. It does not export either, giving the same results as the above state. What do I do? I am very frustrated that Camtasia has suddenly stopped uploading directly to YouTube? Or could YouTube have blocked this file? Or am I messing something up? Who is at fault, please help.

Hello there,

If it were me I I would produce the video manually.Then upload it to YouTube myself.

Just do a custom production to MP4. Use a bit rate of no more than 10,000. YouTube down samples high bit rate videos.See Image Below,Click To Enlarge

Personally, I never use the Upload to YouTube seems to have issues for me also.

I just Produce out a MP4 and upload it via the YouTube upload process.
