Uploading iMovie to Flickr...???

Discussion in 'Graphics' started by The Translucent Amoebae, May 3, 2008.

  1. First: i have an iMovie '08 application which apparently will only
    allow films in the formats MPEG-4, DV & .MOV
    Which my camera does not use...???

    How can i get it to accept MPEG-1 films...???

    - - -
    Since i can't get iMovie '08 to work, i've created a little film with
    iMovie HD,
    But Flickr doesn't recognize this Saved format...
    'Save As' doesn't seem to have any options for different formats, as i
    would expect it to...???
    - -
    i've discovered that if i move a Saved iMovie HD to iPhoto, and then
    drag it out of iPhoto, it will appear on my desktop as a .mov, BUT--
    Although it appears to be intact and plays on Quicktime, the file size
    is a tiny fraction of the original, and Flickr doesn't recognize it as
    a film document...???

    Gawd! i hate computers...!!!

    How can i make a film with a Macintosh ( iMovie ) and upload it ( Full
    Size* ) to Flickr...???

    - - -
    *Curiously; i've discovered a very convoluted & inelegant way to get
    the film to play on Flickr, but the process reduces it's size by about
    60% and it looks like crap...!!!

    ugh.

    Thanx!

  3. i went out and bought QuickTime, but i'm still having problems...
    i haven't actually gone into a blind panic yet, but there does seem to
    be way WAY too many video formats...!!!

    Flickr accepts .avi .wmv .mov mpeg-1 -2 & -4 and 3gp
    All of which Apple apparently refers to as slightly different names OR
    they just don't have these...!!!
    When i tried to use Export with MPEG-4, The affix was .mp4 ...???

    sigh.

    Has anyone ACTUALLY uploaded a Fully Edited iMovie to Flickr or
    YouTube...???
    And if so: How did they do this...???

    Thanx!

    ....and if Flickr says it accepts mpeg-4 then that .mp4 is what they
    accept.
    I have done YouTube, I used at first .mov but recently .mp4

    'Save As' doesn't seem to have any options for different formats, as i
    Export

    for example:
    Export
    Quicktime
    Expert Settings
    Export: Movie to Quicktime Movie
    Options
    Sound Settings: AAC, 24000 kHz, Stereo(L R), 48 kbps
    Video Settings: H.264, 24fps, 1000 kbps, multi-pass

    Before, you complained about lack of options for different formats.
    So don't start complaining now about too many options for different
    formats...

  7. Before it wasn't the ones i wanted, and it's still not the ones i
    want.
    Also; i just tried loading a .mov and Flickr doesn't seem to recognize
    it as a .mov...?
    Command i says it's a Quicktime Movie, but it's affix is .mov...???

    Also; i just tried loading a .mov and Flickr doesn't seem to recognize
    ..mov is the standard extension for a QuickTime movie.

    Why not ask for assistance in the Flickr help forum?

  9. my brain works more towards 'familiar community' rather than
    'appropriate community'.
