How to Upload movies on Youtube

To upload a movie to YouTube, you need to ensure you have the rights to distribute it, as YouTube has strict guidelines regarding copyright infringement. Assuming you have the rights or permission:

  1. Prepare your movie: Make sure your movie is in a digital format compatible with YouTube’s requirements. Common formats include MP4, MOV, AVI, and WMV.
  2. Create a YouTube account: If you don’t have one already, sign up for a YouTube account. You’ll need a Google account to do this.
  3. Sign in and upload: Once logged in, click on the “Create” button (the camera icon) at the top right of the YouTube homepage. Then select “Upload Video”.
  4. Select your movie file: Choose the movie file you want to upload from your computer or device. You can drag and drop the file into the upload window or select it manually.
  5. Enter details: While your movie uploads, you can enter details such as the title, description, tags, and privacy settings. Make sure to accurately describe your movie and choose the appropriate privacy settings (public, unlisted, or private).
  6. Set thumbnail: YouTube will automatically generate a thumbnail for your video, but you can also upload a custom thumbnail if you prefer.
  7. Publish: Once everything is set, click on the “Publish” button to make your movie live on YouTube.
  8. Wait for processing: Depending on the size of your movie file and your internet connection, it may take some time for YouTube to process and publish your video.
