Youtube doesn't support Theora 1.1 videos. Uploading such files will result in a garbled/corrupt green video.

To work around this in PiTiVi, you need to use another format. You could use
- container = Matroska
- video = H.264 (x264enc)
- audio = AAC

You'll need a powerful computer to encode H.264.
