Pinnacle Studio's VideoSpin allows you to create videos in a few easy steps with its easy-to-use video maker. However, many people run into problems with the program because after being saved, the file is in .stx format. Unfortunately, this format is incompatible with video sharing sites like YouTube and MetaCafe. In order to convert the file, there are extra steps to take, but luckily, converting the file to a supported type may be done by using the Pinnacle program.
