The first step in uploading your video for YouTube is to create an account. Simply go to and follow the extremely simple instructions provided on the website. You will be asked to provide an email address. Once you have created your account, check your email to verify that your account has been properly set up and activated.

When making your video, keep in mind that the parameters set by YouTube specify that the videos should be no longer than 10 minutes and no bigger than 100MB. Also, make sure you read the terms and conditions on the site to make sure your video is in accordance. Once you have met all guidelines, it is time to upload your video.

On the website, find the Upload button. When you click on that icon, you should see a popup screen asking you to create your title and description of the video. Keep in mind, the more interesting these are the more likely people will watch your video.

Next there will be an option to make your video public or private. Public is just what it sounds like; anyone with the internet can see your video. Private means that only you and 25 people you choose can watch the video. The thing to consider is who do you want watching your project. If it is a documentary on cheese, public is probably ok. If it is you videotaping your latest rash spreading, you might want to stick with private, but that is only a suggestion.

Once this is done, find your video by clicking the Browse icon. When you find your video, simply hit the Upload Video button, and you have officially placed a video on YouTube.
