Terry,, here is a link that will supply you the information on different video format's for Youtube.
Hope it help's you to decide.
Diane, I have the same camera and love it! The picture quality is wonderful and the sound quality is very good, but because, as you stated, the mic is omni-directional so sensitive to surrounding noise, I attach a clip-on mic to my collar and plug it into the camera; it helps a lot and it's cheap and easy. But yeah .mov format which needs conversion.
Terry; strangely The Flip was my fav video camera (they don't make them anymore) but it was such an incredible little camera with astounding quality and it cost a whopping $130 USD.
Kevin, I think Youtube allows .mp4 uploads right?
