Hello! I have been having a problem with my youtube videos. There seems to be really weird sporadic pixilation on my video visual. It shows up on all platforms. Here's a link to a video so you can see: Just wondering what could be causing it - and how I could fix it. Thanks in advance for any suggestions Happy

You can see that in highly compressed videos around areas of movement all over YouTube. You may want to talk to whoever set this up about compression settings.

And once it's in the video you don't want to know how much work it is to remove it.

I don't know what you mean by whoever set it up. My process is to import from my camera to imovie and edit - then export to theater and upload from there. Where is it going wrong? Thank you

When does the effect show up?

I can't know this. I also can't know your settings.

Video editing is easier than it used to be but given the rather endless settings there are today I can't tell you which one it is. Do you have support at the Apple Store or a class you took on video editing?

Basically it looks normal for high compression. Since there are so many settings, try higher/highest quality over high compression.

If the effect is seen on the camcorder you have to fix it there and not in iMovie.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
