Want to join the millions of people who upload their videos to YouTube? It’s actually much easier than you think. Once you’ve created your video, either with your web cam or other video recorder, and then edited it (an easy program is Windows Movie Maker), you’re ready to show it to the world.
Step One: Registration
If you don’t already have a YouTube account, you will have to create one. This is very easy and takes just a few minutes. It’s also free. Tip: if you have an email account with Google, signup will be even easier.
Step Two: Uploading
Uploading your video is as easy as going to the “Account Settings” section of your account. The upload link can be found on the upper right. Simply click it, and then browse for the video you’ve created on your computer. It can take up to 30 minutes for a video to load in addition to processing time, so once you’ve begun the process, don’t click your browser’s ‘back’ button to try again, as this will interrupt the upload. Step Three: Description And Sharing If you are looking to make your video completely public, using lots of relevant keywords along with a detailed title and description will help people to find it. When building your keyword list, think of what someone may type in when they’re looking for a video like yours. In addition to public sharing, you can opt to make your video private. Private links allow for only those who are sent the link to view it. But be aware that if your contacts share your link with their own friends, that it will become public.
