Then publish!!



Uploading a video to YouTube his easier than you might think. And YouTube’s privacy settings allow you to restrict access if needed. It’s a great way for people to watch videos without the need to sign-up and login. Just makes it easier
Instructions Step-by-Step
  1. Create a YouTube account. If you have a Gmail account, you can use that user name and password instead. Remember to write down your username and password!!
  2. Make sure you are logged into your account.
  3. Click the Upload button in the upper-right-hand corner of any YouTube page.
  4. Click the Upload Video button and select the appropriate video file. The video will automatically upload and you will get a green check mark when it’s successfully saved. Saved means it is at YouTube and will appear shortly.
  5. Enter as much information about your video as possible in the Description and Tag fields. The more info you enter, the easier it will be for people to find it!
  6. Select a Category for the video from the list of 15 that YouTube provides. I don;t think they have enough categories, but such is life.
  7. If you only want your video to be viewed by friends and family, then select Private. Don;t do that for anything for this class, it should be public.
  8. Click the Save changes button.
  9. Once your video has been saved, click on Go to My Videos. It can take a few minutes to process a file after it’s been uploaded. You will get a “please wait” message while this is taking place. When you see the word “Live!”, it’s ready to view.
  10. For personal items (not things from this class) Click on Edit to change any of the descriptions or settings you previously saved. Here, you can also create a “Limited access URL” or create a list of contacts if you only want to share your video with friends and family. You can also choose whether people are allowed to leave comments or rate your video and control other sharing options.
Important to remember:
  • Your video can be no longer than 15 minutes to put on YouTube.
  • YouTube accepts video files from most cameras, camcorders and cell phones. Acceptable file formats include .avi,.wmv, .mov, and .mpg. .mov is the most common format
  • YouTube has strict copyright rules. Do not upload any TV shows, concert footage or commercials without permission.
  • Check out the YouTube Community Guidelines. It is important NOT to post any videos that could hurt, embarrass, or offend anyone else, and always ask permission before you publish an image or likeness of someone else.
