What is the file size that you are trying to upload? Large file size = long upload time and some sites have restrictions.

As mentioned, use Handbrake (which is free) to remove unwanted useless frames (use Seconds vs. Chapters), then reduce the file size to a desired preset of your choice, for say Web, and then add to convert it to MP4 and Press "Start". You will benefit from reading the Help files or looking for a YouTube tutorial, as Handbrake has a few "quirks" as to where it wants to save the new file and what it wants to name it. Edit the Preferences to suit your needs.

It was 634mb. It finally uploaded after about an hour!
