no wifi here
I am brand new to the android world, starting off big with the droid x. I tried uploading to youtube for the first time today, but had no luck. It keeps telling me "waiting for wifi." Problem is, I can't get wifi where I am. From my home (in small town TX) my phone is almost always on 1x. Sometimes I hit 3g but rarely. So what can I do?? I don't even know where to begin. Do I need a router for my home computer? Which one do I need? I'm so lost, it's a little embarrassing to be so "out of the loop" when it comes to things like this. Any help would be appreciated.

Wifi and droid x
Thank you for the quick reply I was able to connect to wifi at a friends house who has a router. It still took forever to upload to youtube. My 16 second video took nearly 5 min to upload. I started trying to upload a 2 min video but ended up cancelling due to slow upload time. Is there any way to speed this up, or is it just due to the hd and size of files? Also, what is going to be my best option for purchasing a router. I'm not interested in spending a lot, but I do want a good quality product that produces good results.

Now that I have my N1 whenever my wife says "Are you sure?" I go online and show her.

I used an app called pixel pipe it uploads the hd videos fine also qik might work also. you might be able to copy them over from dlna then upload from the pc.i tried this with videos from my pc to phone and it works great with the tversity server.haven't tried to copy to my pc though.

I'm also having trouble uploading to youtube. I am definitely connected to my wifi network (it's obtained an ip address) and I can surf the web but it stays stuck at the "waiting for wifi". The thing is, I've been able to successfully upload 4 videos out of 15 or so attempts. Not sure what worked for those 4, but this is a pain. Any suggestions?

Re: why cant i upload video to youtube?
to all you users having trouble uploading to youtube!
i used to have this problem and it would sometimes work sometimes not. the way i like to do things is completely diagnose the problem to find out exactly why.
in order to upload to youtube, the creators of the software made it so if your connection to wifi isn't almost perfect is will come up with an error code in the process of doing uploading. youtube did this so users didnt "blame" youtube for slow uploading, and instead users would just blame the phone.
now to fix the problem:
you can do a soft data reset (instructions just go to the search bar and type it in)
this will clear any existing errors
but the only way to fix it for good, is to get a new router or just find someway to gain a better connection. maybe your too far away? but you just need to obtain a perfect connection
