Every time I try to export a Final Cut Pro X project to youtube, share monitor pops open and then gives me the error message "codec not installed." I spent two hours today at the Apple Genius Bar, and it stumped the panel. Their final suggestion, which I just completed, was to delete the software, reinstall my system software (Snow Leopard), update the system software, then reinstall Final Cut Pro X. After another two hours of going through all that, guess what happened when I tried to export a project to youtube? Yep, "Codec not installed!" AAAAHHH! It exports to Quicktime OK, but the files end up being so huge, uploading them to youtube after that is implausible. Any suggestions out there? I guess I need to pop the extra $50 for Compressor?


Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
