Hey everyone. Just got a Mac about a week ago and I'm having problems uploading directly to YouTube. I have my video created and go to Share -> YouTube. I then fill out all my settings and it creates the movie. The status bar then shows "Getting Upload Location..." for a second or so and then I get a pop-up saying "YouTube reported an unknown error". No mention of bad passwords or any other issues. I've tried it off and on for 24 hours without any luck. Additionally, I've messed with the various settings for YouTube and even created a new YouTube account, but no luck. It doesn't even seem like the communication to YouTube is there, but I can access the Internet and YouTube fine through Safari. Any ideas?

Also, I've noticed that the YouTube upload window appears to be different than what the tutorials show. The tutorials show you having to authenticate your account through Safari and then the password is saved. However, the screen that I have just has you entering a user name and a password without any authentication. Is this how it should be? Thanks for any help.
