YouTube not uploading videos in the .mp4 format all of a sudden

Hey guys for the past several days I have been able to upload videos to YouTube, but today when I went on there to upload a video in the .mp4 which is the same format I use all the time and YouTube failed to even try to process the request, is it me or is this something that has to do with them I tried using both Chrome and Firefox and got nowhere

I just uploaded a .mp4 without problems. Maybe your file was a propriatory file owned by someone else. They check these things. Try with a .mp4 file that you produced yourself - e.g. thru screen capture.

This was a Movie Maker project and I tried uploading one of the past Movie Maker Projects that I made about 4 or 5 days ago and it started uploading normally, do you think maybe trying to re-make the video will help it because I have never had this error in the past

In Movie Maker you can also choose .wmv as output format. Maybe that works better. But first I would try again to upload the .mp4 file. Maybe it was only a temporary glitch.
