    Computer's too slow for 4K video. Change the resolution of what you're shooting to 1080p and you'll probably be fine.

    I got Freemake video converter (google and ye shall find...), and reduced the resolution to 1080, it works well, even if the conversion takes time. 4K is not usable in YouTube..

    My pleasure, I still always record in 4k, for the distant future when I can afford a decent computer/monitor..
