10 Tips for Making the Most of YouTube

49 Ways to Make the Most out of YouTube


YouTube Basics: 

Once you edit your video, make sure it's smaller than 2GB in size, in an acceptable file format, and less than 15 minutes unless you have permission to upload videos of unlimited duration.

If all of these things are in order, you are now ready to upload!

To upload your video:

  1. Click the Upload link at the top of any YouTube page.
  2. Click the Upload video button to browse for the video file you'd like to upload to our site. Select the file you want to upload and click Open.
  3. As the video file is uploading, enter as much information about your video as possible in the relevant fields (including Title, Description, Tags, and Category). You're not required to provide specific information, but the more information you include, the easier it is for users to find your video!
  4. Click the Save changes button to save the updates you've made to the video file.

Have more than one video file to upload?

You can upload up to 10 video files in a single uploading session.
