    Try converting it to .avi
    Use Forinside to convert it, then upload it.

    AVI can mean anything. What matters is what's inside. AVI is a container. Inside could contain Xvid or h264 & mp3 or aac or whatever.

    You need to make the insides something easier for YouTube to understand, mainly, h264 & aac or mp3.
