    I uploaded my video from my Macbook on iMovie HD directly, but it couldn’t convert it on youtube. I then converted it to Quicktime, Full Quality, but it’s taking tooo long. I did Web streaming and web, but the quality is awful. How do I make the quality better? How do I convert it to be uploaded to Youtube?
