I have tried everything to upload my videos on YouTube and despite all the advice nothing works! I give up and will NEVER use YouTube again. I hope the problem causes them to lose money as it’s wasted a lot of my time and bandwidth.

The basic uploader doesn’t work any better. Neither does the new Java “resumable” upload (and it doesn’t resume where it stopped, either). Are there any other fixes for this problem?
