Audio file guidelines

The following guidelines are for audio tracks that you provide to 
YouTube. These guidelines describe the formatting specifications that 
yield the highest quality for playing audio on YouTube and for matching 
your audio tracks to the audio tracks of user-uploaded videos. Note that 
an audio track would only be played back on YouTube if you have opted to 
include that track in YouTube's AudioSwap program. Generally, we 
recommend that you upload the highest quality audio possible.

     Supported file formats:
         MP3 audio in MP3/WAV container
         PCM audio in WAV container
         AAC audio in MOV container
         FLAC audio


"wav lossless to youtube mov" is bullshit - period
