How to upload mp4 recordings to YouTube?

Hi, the Cross DJ app creates recordings in mp4 format, but when I try to upload it to YouTube I get an error uploading message. The file format is not suitable, but I thought mp4 was fine? Should I convert it to another format? Thanks

Hi Dr185,

Cross DJ actually records m4a files but wraps them as an mp4 to ensure higher compatibility. So it will say mp4 but only be an audio file, which might be causing the issue.

There used to be an easy way to upload audio with a linked image on the YouTube app for Android but after an update I couldn't figure out how to do this. It is a little more straight forward if you can use a computer to upload.

You can try changing the advanced setting for recording format to .ogg to see if that changes anything, but if you are trying to upload via the Android app the problem might be that the file does not contain any video data and that is why you get an error.

Best regards,
