Question: Trouble uploading iPhone video to YouTube

After successfully uploading several iPhone videos to YouTube, I now get the message "Can't upload" video to YouTube every time I try to upload a video. I've tried uploading while connected to a WiFi network and with just a 3G signal, but the same error occurs. Any suggestions?

Macbook Pro 2.4 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.2), iPhone 3GS

I'm having the same issue. Video gets compressed and then goes through the publishing process but in the end I get an error message saying video could not be published. I ensured that I was logged in to my YouTube account. Also tried rebooting and then republishing - still getting the same error. Also ensured I have the latest iPhone OS (3.1) which came out today.

I have the same problem today, before upgrading to 3.1, it worked fine using wifi. But after 3.1, it just says cannot publish... (I was using wifi). Then I copied the video file to my computer (without compress) and upload it to youtube without problem... I think something is wrong with the compress.. let's hope they fix it quickly
