I've already tried the steps here but the last step isn't possible since there isn't a tooltip on the dashboard page.

I have a Gmail account (me@gmail.com) that has my YouTube channel with uploads/etc. I want to move all the data to my Google Apps account (me@me.com). I don't care if views/etc are kept. I want to be able to stop using my Gmail account for non-Gmail things.

To use that tool you must have conflicting user accounts.

From the support page you listed:

If you did not have a conflicting account, you won’t be able to use the automatic data moving tool. For instance, you won’t be able to move data from an unrelated @gmail.com account to your Google Apps account.

This video explains what a conflicting account is.

Is there another way to do it if you don't have a conflicting user account? – Dez Jul 20 '12 at 22:04
As far as I know there is no other way - sorry! – OrangeBox Jul 22 '12 at 6:24
Thanks for the answer, a bummer, but still a valid answer. – Dez Aug 6 '12 at 12:47
