Why won't YouTube upload my swf files?
Sometimes, we can upload SWF to YouTube without any issue. But most time, we get "Upload Failed" error. SWF is a standard format for publishing Flash content on the Web. Depending on the features it contains, it may or may not convert to video. So the "upload failed" is probably a conversion failure. Though YouTube is the most popular video sharing websites, but there are a large number of media formats and not all of them can be uploaded directly to YouTube.
According to the official website, YouTube accepts a wide range of video file formats, including *.MOV, *.MPEG4, *.MP4, *.AVI, *.WMV, *.MPEGPS, *.FLV, *.3GPP, *.WebM formats. SWF file can be played well by IE or other browsers but it is not one of the supported file type by YouTube.
