Im totally new to the phantom 3. I would like to share some of my first videos with family. Uploading a 3 minute video on youtube seems to be taking several hours. Is this normal? Can someone lead me in the right direction as far as moving the video off the card or computer and onto a social platform or youtube? Thanks

I guess it depends mostly on your home computer. Or your allowable internet speed actually. ;-)

It might take longer or less time whether the Youtube server is busy as well.  

Perhaps try uploading your video files to http://www.Vimeo.com too.

Thank you, I will give that a try. My internet speeds are not the greatest as I live very rural. I only recently was able to get internet that has unlimited bandwidth. I'm only showing 31% of my 3 minute video with  hours and 51 mins left to upload it. My internet isn't the fastest but isn't the slowest either. Do I need to be converting the video over to some other kind of format? All I did was save it to my computer in my videos section and now uploading from that file onto youtube.

Yes, probably your internet speed is the reason it takes a while to complete. So No it should be fine, YouTube will do all the conversions if necessary.
Just be patient. Go RTFM or omething equally constructive. HaIf your smart, get a few more micro sd cards, and another flight battery.  & Go flying. . .  ;-)

I would also suggest uploading file reduced in resolution and maybe with some compression especially if you have low speed. It does not have to be full resolution for viewing on the web.
