  • Click the button in the upper-right-hand corner of any YouTube page.
  • Click the Browse button to browse for the video file you would like to upload to our site. Select the file you want to upload.
  • Click the 'Upload Video' button to start the uploading process.
  • 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!
  • Click the 'Save changes' button to save the updates you've made to the video file.

It can take from a couple minutes to an hour for your video to upload to YouTube. If you're receiving an error with your Upload, you might want to make sure you're attempting to upload a file that's recognized by YouTube. YouTube accepts video files from most digital cameras and camcorders, and cell phones in the .AVI, .MOV, .WMV, and .MPG file formats.

lightbulbPlease note: your video must meet our uploading requirements: no larger than 1GB and no more than 10 minutes in length. If your video does not meet these requirements you will need to re-edit the video file on your computer then upload the new file to our site.

Have more than one video file to upload?
Not a problem! You can upload up to 10 video files in a single uploading session.
