Publishing Once you are done, you can export or

publish your video in a variety of ways, including straight to YouTube, digital file, DVD, and emailing the file.

Your file will be exported as a WMV (windows media video) file. This will not play unless you use a Windows Video Player. To transfer it to another file type, you can use a free transcoder like HandBrake.
