SFM not uploading videos to YouTube - Need Help!
Whenever I try to upload my video to YouTube SFM will go through the steps, even showing the "uploading movie..." progress window and taking about 20 minutes to get 100%. Only once its done it will give me this[] error telling me to check my internet connection. And the whole time I can log into my YouTube account and see that its not actually uploading. The file is only 346MB, and I was able to use SFM to upload a video to YouTube a few weeks ago, about the same size as this current one.

I've tried all of the following:
  • Reprocessing video into different file format (mp4)
  • Two step verification is disabled
  • Removing all spaces from filename
  • Restarting Steam
  • Restarting computer
  • Reinstalling SFM
  • Opting into current Steam beta (was out for first attempts)

Number of failed upload attemps: 7

Hi, I figured out a fix! For me at least. You need to go into your steam settings, and make sure your on the right internet speed setting, a lot of the time people set it to fiber because they don't realize the upload speed they have isn't comparable and is what is used. I have a 72 mbts but only 1mbts upload. So I changed mine from fiber to cable and it fixed it.

*Also When it worked I only put 2 words in the description, then when it uploaded I put in the description I wanted. So try those both, best of luck!
