digital camcorder with hdd
I have a Sony since 2006 and is high-quality, makes MPEG, I download in PC with USB, the I edit with different video programs depending by needs, eventually I use a converter then I upload on youtube or anywhere else.
Usually I use video splitters and joiners, I put transitions between parts and add text, subtitles...

So, just use a digital video camera to record, one that has digital support as record media.
I can record on 30GB more than 4h on high quality.

For long interviews you may want a camera with replaceable flash drive. Then change your memory half way through

hi, first you need to know that youtube has a limit of how long your video can run for
 normally no longer than 5 to 10 minutes. If your a big contributor you get a 15 minutes
Youtube video limit upped from 10 minutes to 15 minutes

The reason I know is I have contributed lots of videos and got an email congratulating me with an increase of my upload size to 15 minutes.

Keeping that in mind your conference will have to be split into 15 minute segments.
If you camera can record for 10 minute segments would be the simplest way instead of chopping it up later splitting into segments.
Then load each segment into WLMM and if you don't need to add anything other than a Title maybe a few bits of information it's pretty simple to do in WLMM, then publish it straight from WLMM.

Basically 2.5 hours interview will be very long. Do you have any domain space and domain setup? I think its difficult to upload it for free usage.

if you want long videos then upload somewhere else, for example vimeo.
Then take the link from vimeo and place it on facebook.
That would be one option that I used once.
