Currently Being ModeratedJun 26, 2008 6:31 AM (in response to cp_whaley)I wish to report I'm having the same issue.
After uploading videos to YouTube using iMovie '08, I used to get a message confirming the upload with a URL to directly go to the video's page.
Now, I still get a message, but it gives me the URL for my collection of uploaded videos (http://youtube.com/profile_videos?user=[username]) instead of the video's page. Furthermore, when I check my videos on YouTube, I don't see my new videos uploaded with iMovie.Mac mini (1.83GHz Intel Core Duo), Mac OS X (10.4.10)
So, I guess we have a common problem. It's weird, because this has never been an issue before. It was so handy to upload to YouTube directly.
I can report though that the most obvious work-around still works. Export your iMove videos to your desktop or wherever, then upload them directly from the YouTube site. It's a pain in the *** and you have to re-enter all of your upload info, but it works.
There must be some kind of interface issue that has suddenly gone wrong between IMove and YouTube. Let's hope a fix is on the way.G5 iMac, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
I am having the exact problem that you are. I have uploaded the video twice, and have received the message saying the upload is completed both times. Same as you, I get the user=username link instead of a direct movie link.
Does anyone out there know what's going on?24" iMac Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz (White), Mac OS X (10.5.4), 1 GB RAM, 500 GB HD
I am also having exactly the same problem. I published my video to YouTube and received confirmation from iMovie 08 that it was published. But when I check for the video in YouTube I receive over & over again the following message: "This user doesn't have any videos at this time!" There is definitely something wrong here folks.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
I have seen similar behavior. I think that it takes "some" time to process the videos at YouTube. I have seen them done in a few minutes and then sometimes a lot longer. That's why you can't see them right away. If it says you succeeded and tells you the URL where the video is going, give it some time to process and then check back at that URL or click on the link in the project itself (Next to Tell a Friend click the button that says Visit). Best wishes.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 10, 2008 4:58 PM (in response to RockStarr)The problem is that it doesn't give a URL other than the user id. It does however tell you that the upload is successful.24" iMac Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz (White), Mac OS X (10.5.4), 1 GB RAM, 500 GB HD
Currently Being ModeratedJul 12, 2008 5:00 PM (in response to RockStarr)Yes. When I click, it brings me to the page that shows all of the videos I have uploaded in the past (my member page) instead of to a page with the new video. The new video cannot be found.24" iMac Core 2 Duo 2.33GHz (White), Mac OS X (10.5.4), 1 GB RAM, 500 GB HD
I am having exactly the same problem as Cary B & the others here. There is definitely some connection glitch between iMovie 08 and YouTube. When I click "Visit" it takes me to a YouTube page that states "This user doesn't have any videos at this time!," which is impossible as iMovie tells me that it has been "Published to YouTube."
Regarding time, I waited four days before checking to see whether it uploaded or not.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2008 8:49 PM (in response to cp_whaley)I've uploaded 15 videos so far and now I have gotten this exact same problem.
how strange that a large amount of people are getting this. I though it was just Apple's or Youtube's servers were down or something like that.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2008 10:23 PM (in response to cp_whaley)Count me in as someone else having a problem uploading to YouTube directly from iMovie. I have a bunch of videos previously uploaded successfully, but when I try to do it now, it tells me that username and password are incorrect, which isn't true. Seems like it's a problem on YouTube's end if you ask me...iMac, Black Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 11:04 AM (in response to cp_whaley)Hi there.
1. What "Size" did you choose in iMovie: a. Mobile or b. Medium?
2. How long is your video?
3. What estimated size is your video? i.e. 30,50,100, 1000MB? Easy to find out by clicking the "i" icon next to the "Size To Publish" button before exporting.
4. Lastly, how long are you waiting for before viewing your video on Youtube? You go there immediately by clicking the View button, you wait for 1 minute, you wait for one day.
Last question might solve your issue. I uploaded about 130 videos on various Youtube accounts with no glitches, however, some of those videos didn't show up on youtube for as long as a couple of days. I think their servers are overloaded and often it takes a long time before viewing your uploaded videos.
I have uploaded my latest video 17 hours ago. Both Thumbnail and video were visible in my list of videos at 6:30am this morning. Before then, I could not view it at all.
I hope this helps.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 11:16 AM (in response to dontwhine)there was another thread reporting YouTube problems. changing the account password fixed it. you might want to try this.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 11:30 AM (in response to cp_whaley)One more thing I didn't mention is that you should empty your internet browser cache, i.e. Safari, by going to the main Safari menu, selecting "Empty Cache" from the pull-down menu and clicking "Empty" when prompted to do so.
After that "Reload your current page" by clicking the Safari Reload button that should appear as a button with a semi-circular arrow in your Safari window.
I hope this helps too.HAL-9000, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
