how have you recorded your video? did you drop the replay straight from your PS3 onto your PC or did you do it via a capture card?

ive used a stick to transfer the files, ive learnt that these files need gt5 to render them, so i guess ill need to capture the replay from the game

The "replay files" from GT5 are nothing more than a set of instructions for the game to recreate the race. They contain no video information, so you cannot do anything with them apart from load back into GT5.

To create a video of your race, you could record it from the TV using a phonecamera, or similar. This gives the lowest quality, but is quick and cheap.

Next best way (increased quality) is to use a cable to connect the PS3 to a dvd-recorder, then rip the disc on your computer. You can get between 480-576 quality from this method.

The best way, but you will need to spend money, is to buy a "capture card" which goes inbetween your PS3 and your TV, this splits the signal into your computer where you can record the replay at the best quality (depending on how good the card is), max 1080 quality.

yup you can either use a capture card OR if you want it played "at a lower budget" you can hold a digital camera/recorder and record what is being played on your PS3, then make a youtube account and post it on there :)
