Canon 6D Product Advisory Issued

Canon has issued a product advisory for the Canon 6D relating to the inability for movies shot on the 6D to playback on YouTube. This appears to be aimed at users who pull a card out of their camera and upload directly to YouTube.

The fix (for now) is to save the file via ImageBrowser EX and then upload to YouTube. If you already go through an editing and exporting process for your HDSLR videos, then you don’t need to worry about this problem.

More details in the full product advisory below.

We have identified a phenomenon which prevents movie files shot using Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR cameras from being played back on YouTube.

Affected Product
EOS 6D Digital SLR Camera

While we continue to investigate this phenomenon, please follow the instructions outlined below to upload Canon EOS 6D movie files to YouTube. After our investigation is complete, we will make an update to this announcement.

1. Download the movie file(s) from the EOS 6D camera to your computer.
2. Start ImageBrowser EX, an application bundled with the EOS 6D.
3. After selecting the movie file(s) to be uploaded, select [Edit Movies] in the [Edit] tab from the menu bar of ImageBrowser EX.
4. “MovieEdit Task” will start. Save the movie using the [Save] menu on the screen.
