I just got my GoPro Hero3+ Silver Edition. I love it so far but having a hard time uploading GoPro to YouTube. I have uploaded many videos to YouTube but not the GoPro yet. YouTube's server keeps rejecting GoPro file. Got more details of the GoPro recorded videos and I got know the GoPro recordings are in H.264 MP4 format in 1080p @ 60fps. Searching from Google and got some recommended solutions. Below is the test of these ways.
Possible ways to upload GoPro MP4 video YouTube:
Solution 1: Try the GoPro CineForm studio
I have tried to use the Raw file it produces in MP4 then an edited one with the software from GoPro. No Luck.

The Dell Venue 11 Pro has a great 1080p screen that just begs for some quality video to show off. But what is the best way for you to transfer your favorite DVD movies to Venue 11 Pro? Since Dell Venue tablet doesn't have a built-in DVD drive for playing DVD movies. To get your favorite DVD movies into Dell Venue 11 Pro for amusement, you need to convert DVD to Dell Venue 11 Pro supported video format first and then transfer the result videos to the Windows 8.1 tablet.
To get the work done, you need to get some help from third-party software. There are many programs out there that allow you to make copies of your DVDs and let you watch them the way you want to view them. The best program I can recommend for ripping DVDs to Venue 11 Pro is Brorsoft DVD Ripper (available for Windows or for Mac users). It is easy to use for editing and conversion and makes great quality copies of my DVDs.
The program takes everything from the DVD, including the chapters, extras, and subtitles. With it, you can bypass the digital protection and convert DVD to any format you want (without losing the quality of your DVD). The audio/video synchronization is very good, the size of the subtitles too. And the conversion speed is faster than most similar apps on market. Download it now and start the DVD to Dell Venue 11 Pro conversion task.
How to Rip DVD for playing on Dell Venue 11 Pro
Step 1 -> Insert your DVD disc into your DVD drive, and then Launch the DVD Ripper for Dell Venue 11 Pro; click the "Disc" button on the interface to navigate to the DVD movies you want to convert.
Step 2 -> Click "Format" bar, you can easily find the optimized videos for Venue 11 Pro under Windows > Dell Venue Pro H.264(*.mp4). The output videos could fit on your Dell Venue 11 Pro perfectly.
Step 3 -> You can also click "Settings" to change the video encoder, frame rate, resolution, etc. Remember the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss. According to my experience, for watching movies on Dell Venue 11 Pro, 720p with 1500kbps~2000kbps (depending on the movie length) is just all right.
Step 4 -> When everything is OK, just press the "Convert" button to start ripping DVD to MP4 for Dell Venue 11 Pro. It will not take much time. Just wait for the conversion process to get done.
After the conversion, connect your Windows 8 tablet to PC and transfer DVD videos to Venue 11 Pro for smooth playback on the go.
