Convert the video to something smaller, like Mp4 with h.264 codec. Youtube prefers the video to be in h.264 format (doesn't have to convert the video, not to also mention smaller than avi {and let me guess mjpeg codec}). You won't loose a lot of the quality.

Get a better Internet Service Provider Plan that allows for more Upload Speed...

Most ISPs severly limit upload speed on their Plans...

While they often advertise 5 Mb/s Internet, they mean that # is divided by Down & Up, which is to say you may only get 4.5 Mb/s down and .5 Mb/s up, so make SURE you know what plan you are buying, BEFORE you sign up for it, as many of them want to lock you into a contract too, meh!

Just my 2 cents..

Yes, it will. The speed of your internet does affect your upload speed.

You said "[my] speed is 256kbps" which is really slow. Here is your speedtest score from your video on your other question

Your upload is .25 Mb/s which means it will take a really long time to upload something. The best way would be to get a new internet plan which is faster.

That's apparently the problem at hand, he needs a better ISP / Service Plan, definitely. :D

Yes, this is like the third or fourth question where he wants some aspect of his internet to be faster.

Upload speed is often overlooked by many people. Yes, you may have 50Mb/s download, but if your upload speed is only 1Mb/s your internet is not 'all that'.

ISP's generally don't advertise upload speeds. Ask before you buy.

Guys I'm old school so just saying... Been in the tech fields off and on for years. The truth of the matter about ISP upload speeds, (not this guys problem, he needs a better plan better ISP something, Yeah I kmow it's over a year old now. ;) ).

ISPs throttle upload speeds to keep people from running a Web Space i.e. internet server.

First off they get to be bandwidth hogs. They stay on and uploading when you are not home from anywhere in the world to a another IP when that user request something. It is an upload from your end but a download from their end.

Secondly, They sell bandwidth for web sites commercially. Why have you use their bandwidth to open a store that you run when they sell that space. It really is this point more than any. Its never about the people its always about the money.

Sometimes they offer these little tools to make your own web space on their server (because they have a rule about that) but limit the complexity by making you use their tools..... That being said some places out there in netland will let you host from their servers but limited as well for the most part.

Just my twentytwo cents,


I believe in principle over profit, that secrecy is trumped by honesty and corporate interests will be trumped by community.....(MOZILLA)

I've worked as tech support for a ISP provider. Usually you can see it when you have the package from the provider themselves. Like mine it 8Mbs down and 1 Mbs upload from my ISP. But I have seen others where you can have a larger upload speed as well. But its with one of the faster packages where they can exchange the modem out like on the DSL packages. On my Cable modem I don't have t worry too much if I do decide with a higher package they will bump up the loading capabilities on it from their end. It all depends on the package that your currently on with your Service provider.
