Uploading video

I wanted to upload a 30 sec amateur video of Lake Malawi, file format being AVI, file size 68 MB. I tried YouTube, I tried Revver, but both just show the first 4 seconds and then stop.

The video runs fine on my old Dell. Any tips?

(Update) this is what Revver had to say:

There’s something about this file that our Flash transcoder doesn’t like
(if you click the QT logo below the player you’ll notice that this
version plays all 37 seconds of the clip). It makes sense that the same
thing happened on YouTube since they transcode their movies into Flash
as well.

I recommend re-exporting the file as a different file type–possibly a
WMV, and reuploading to the site.
