Hi,
I cant upload to youtube anymore w/Cyberlink 16 and the new youtube uploader 2020.
I just get an invalid file format message..from youtube..
Straight unprocessed camera files upload fine...right from the Sony camera program.
But files processed thru Cyberlink.. youtube does not like at all..
I have converted the Cyberlink files to all types that youtube suggests..but nothing works..
Is there a solution for this?
Thx for your help.

Process say a 10 second long sample file with the Cyberlink 16. Attach it on your next reply or place it on the Google drive and share it so users can check out what the problem might be,

That .pds file you attached is a text file containing the instructions on what you do and edit with the video on your timeline. There is no video embeded in that .pds file. Look at the file size of 356 KB. It is only text. You need to go to the Produce tab and produce the file say in the mp4 or m2ts format and upload that particular mp4 or m2ts file from your hard drive to YouTube, not this pds file.

Thx for that!
But..I did indeed produce it in H265 & MP4 ...so it appears Cyberlink is not working..not actually producing or converting the flle..
Is there a solution for this..?

Just to be clear, "Cyberlink" is the company that makes various software, while PowerDirector 16 is the specific app you're working with.

If you go to the Produce screen, you will see exactly what folder and what name your produced video will be created with. You can also change either one before clicking on Start:



Once you've produced the video, you'll want to locate that and upload it to YouTube.
