    What's the best way to get videos from a digital camcorder to YouTube?
    I've tried converting to MPG-1 "small" with Pinnacle .. but the video
    is still blurry. In fact, I've tried all sorts of formats. I always
    seem to lose a lot of quality. I see some vids are much clearer. What
    are they doing to get this kind of quality? TIA for any help.

    YouTube>Help>Uploading to YouTube:

    What's the best format to upload for high quality?
    We recommend the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format at 320x240 resolution
    with MP3 audio, at 30 frames per second. Resizing your video to these
    specifications before uploading will help your clips look better on
    YouTube.

    And maybe you are interested in this one too:

    Is there a limit to how much I can upload?
    Currently, the only limit is 100MB and 10 minutes in length per
    video (there is no length limit for Director accounts). We don't have
    any limit for the number of videos you can upload, and don't foresee
    adding a ceiling anytime in the future. So get crankin' and upload as
    many videos as you'd like-it's more content for the whole YouTube
    community to enjoy!

    I love to help, but this one were too easy, sometimes it's good to look
    the help at the sites. ^^

    By the way, good luck with your videos! o/
