    Hi guys,

    For some strange reason I can not upload videos on Youtube anymore from my laptop. I used to be able to do it without problems until one day I could not. I don't know why. I don't remember changing any settings on my computer or within the anti virus itself. Maybe I did something by mistake,because otherwise I have no explanation.
    What happens is: I select my video from the computer ( the right MB size and format...avi. file) just like before and I click "upload video". the upload initializes and the blue percentage bar goes up fast up to a certain number ( x%) after which it freezes there and the upload wont proceed any further.

    I thought that it might be a web site issue,so I tried uploading the same videos from a different computer and I was successful. Obviously there is nothing wrong with my clips nor with my you tube account. It must be something on my laptop. I use Vista Ultimate as operating system and Kaspersky 6.0

    I even tried turning off the firewall but I still could not upload.

    Can someone help me out on this one? Any ideas as to what might be wrong? I include here a screen shot so you might see what I'm talking about. It froze at 56% and good bye uploading....

    Well how about telling us what program you're using. A lot of stuff has Anti-Virus and Firewalls built in together. This type of behavior would not typically happen with an Anti-Virus program, but is totally possible if you're running a firewall you're not familiar with.
