Welcome to the forum.

Firstly it helps if you use a subject title related to your topic.

It's often worth double checking that you've not left a space or other errors in how you've typed in the Youtube username and password. When I have this issue it's mostly a typo or similar.

To change the title of the thread edit your very first post, on a reply this won't work.

I was talking about the title of this thread "Hello" is not very substantial.

Anyway, please uncheck "Upload to youtube.com" export your file to your local hard drive, upload it manually and see what happens.

Did you say that you exported your file locally and then tried to upload it to youtube manually (outside of Lightworks) and after 50% the upload stopped with the message "file specified not found"?

I fixed one of your problems - the name of your thread. As the others have said, titles like "Hello", "Help", "What's this?" aren't likely to get you much help.

It may be that one of your media files is corrupt. Go through them and see if you can play them all as a first step. Otherwise we may need to move on to the "divide and conquer" process to identify the problem - more on that later.

If the video that you exported from Lightworks to your local drive is playable on your computer with a media player then it's most likeley that your problem is caused by the settings of your Google account.

To find out whether that's the case you should export your video to your hard drive (uncheck Upload to youtube.com) and upload it manually outside of Lightworks to Youtube. If this works with your login credentials it's most likely that your internet connection works properly and the problem is caused by your Google account settings (app password or security settings for apps).

I don't use Youtube but this might help:

and a file under the name of the edited video doesn't allow me to play it here is the message verbatim ;

"Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file"

If you couldn't export anything so far what did you play with a media player, the source files?

Did you unchek "Upload to youtube.com" as shown here

I just saw your second message.

Now I'm confused. You said above:

I can play the video I edited.. no problemo there


Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file


What are you telling me? Did you edit a video that isn't playable with windows media player or are you talking about different files?

Please elaborate!
