I was wondering how those of you who upload to YouTube do it.

By that, I mean, do you do anything to prepare your videos, before-hand, so that YouTube doesn't have to convert them, thereby giving you more control over the final quality, or do you simply upload whatever format your video is already in?

If you do prepare them, yourself, how do you do it (I.E., what program(s) do you use and what settings do you find to work the best)?

I've attempted to upload my first video, but it's taking forever for YouTube to convert and post it.  I'd converted it to MP4, as per the instructions I found while Googling the subject, but, apparently, that wasn't good enough.

Shed some light, if you can, please.
I looked around but couldn't find anything about this.

As the title suggests, does the site have any rules concerning the use of copyrighted material as samples in uploaded songs?

I ask because I have a couple that use some simple samples, one from an Adam Sandler CD and another from a local radio announcer, and I don't want to upload them if there's going to be a problem.

Also, along the same lines, how about what may be considered "mature" material?  That Adam Sandler sample contains the dreaded "F-bomb" throughout the entire song.  I had already thought to put a warning on it that it's NSFW, but, again, I wouldn't want there to be any problems should I decide to share it.

Honestly, I was surprised to see that a forum such as this actually still exists, much less is still as active as this one seems to be.  I found a few others that hadn't had any new posts since 2005.
Even more surprising is how hard it was to find.  I still don't understand why Google uses such a weird method for listing sites.  It ranks sites by how many other sites are linked to it rather than how appropriate it is to your search queries.  One would figure that, if you type in "mtv music generator", a site called "" would be at the top of the list instead of being eleven pages deep!

Ahem... sorry about that little tirade, there, folks.  Anyway...

So, who am I?  I'm just some guy who likes MTVMG as much as the rest of you.  After reading a review about it, I knew I had to get it as soon as it came out.  I spent many, many hours fiddling around with it, over the years, and managed to create several memory cards full of songs.  Then came the PS2 and MTVMG2.  I filled another couple of memory cards with stuff on that one.
I remember one time where I was so entranced that I didn't even notice that fourteen hours had gone by.  I think that most of that time was spent working on just one song.
Sadly, though, my PS2 died about two years ago and I haven't had the opportunity (or cashola) to get a new one, so I haven't messed with generator or even played any decent games in a long time.
I did get to transfer some songs to the PC, before the system died, but I had the gain set too high, in Audacity, and they all sound like poop.  I've tried to make them sound better using a variety of methods, but most are too far gone.
I did, just recently, get ahold of a copy of MTVMG for the PC and have to try to re-learn how to use it.  It would seem that using a mouse would be more intuitive than a controller, but I haven't gotten the hang of it, just yet.  Time will tell, I guess.

Okay, that's enough, for now.
