I would really appreciate any help or guidance anyone could offer: I have some wav audio files stored on my computer that form a single work. They're split into sections because of the limitations of the program I used to create them. I'd like to merge them together and put one video on YouTube in a YT-compatible format and just show a still photo for the entire 16-minutes while the music is playing. Can anyone offer advice on what format I need to convert them to and how I'd go about converting them from audio to video? Thanks in advance for any help you can render.

Since you need a video use video software. I don't do youtube but my understanding is they will accept .WMV(which uses .WMA audio). Assuming you have a Windows Machine you can use Movie Maker which is free from M$. You can do your picture and audio in one shot.

If your still interested in just the audio convert to MP3 with Audacity.

Youtube accepts mov, avi mpeg etc. It takes almost anything you upload and converts it to the flv format.

Suggest you do a Google search for "free movie software" if you don't like the Microsoft Movie Maker. There are numerous free packages available.

Remember Youtube has a 15 minute/2GB file limitation on uploads.

Jusr to clarify MOV and AVI are not formats, they are container files that can contain many types of video. AVI for example could be DV (14GB's per hour) which is what tape camcorders record, it could be divx(usually about 1 to GB per hour) commonly used for videos distributed over the internet or it could be uncompressed which is something ridiculous like 60GB per hour.

I'm not familiar with all the types of video youtube accepts but I'd imagine due to their popularity DV and Divx would both be accepted becsue of their popularity but...

15 minutes of DV is going to be 3.5GB but it's only lightly compressed, divx has variable bitrates so the size of the file is going to vary with the same time frame but decent video is only a fraction of DV. Same thing with WMV which is why I suggested it, small file with decent quality.

From my youtube upload page:
Videos can be...

  • High Definition
  • Up to 20 GB in size.
  • A wide variety of formats
