Rejected (duplicate upload) message

Subscribe to the YouTube Help channel for video tips, tricks, and how-to's.

This message means that the video you've uploaded already exists within our system.

If you'd like to upload the same video again, note that simply changing the file name won't prevent the rejection message from showing.

Instead, please try editing the video again. For example, changing the video length (e.g. by adding extra frames by using video editing software) or compression should allow the video to upload.
