    That's actually the only reason why I harass you about them. Happy to be somewhat useful to your project. People usually hate QA guys... :cry: :lol:

    Get a guitar and a pistol, then do this:

    Seriously, I'm not an expert on putting video on YT. First thing that comes to mind is, now YT takes care of 16:9 videos (notice the stretched video player window), so you probably need to disable the letterboxing of your videos in your software to resize from 16:9 to 4:3, since now YT does it automatically. YT instructions are pretty straightforward, check if you follow them correctly:

    An Italian proverb says "The devil makes the saucepans, but not the lids."

    So, definitely not a QA guy, Satan. 8)

    Thank you very much for this. That´s really nice. I still had seen these instructions on youtube before, but I can´t find the reason. I do record the video in 16:9 size with my video-camera in mpg2-format. My video-editing-program requires avi-format (don´t know why), so I have to transform the original mpg2 to avi. Then I can edit my video. So, I suppose, it is still in 16:9 size, or does the conversion from mpg2 to avi change the size? I don´t know. I don´t think, that in my video-program there is enabled any "letterboxing" for to resize the film from 16:9 to 4:3. But I will search for it once more. (May there is enabled something somewhere, which I don´t know.)
    So, normally my video, originally recorded in 16:9 size should be taken without any problems from youtube. I really don´t know, where is the mistake.
    But I don´t want to bother you with this problem, because it´s not your "métier". Very nice of you, that you have tried to help me.

    haha! Generally this means Quality Assurance. Usually this person is a software tester in a software lab/company.

    Generally if you are a programmer/analyst you have a counterpart assigned to find bugs in your code. This is usually called the QA person. The more successful the QA, the less the successful the programmer, kind of anyway :)

    Thanks for the explanation, Stan. I´m really clueless about these special programer-things. The heck with it! :roll:

    The QA guy is the one that has The Last Word before a product can go out into the world. Every company (and web site :p ) should have one.
