Uploading to You Tube

When you create videos, the primary way to upload and share them is through YouTube. This works really well for personal videos, but it's a bit trickier for corporate videos, because each YouTube "channel" is limited to one user account and one password. Eventually, there may be an easy way to upload to a collaborative channel. Google is currently experimenting with methods to allow users to upload submissions to another channel.

YouTube offers unlimited storage for videos and two basic privacy settings, private and public. Private videos can be shared with small groups of other users. You can also upload videos privately at first and make them public later. Public videos are searchable and are automatically closed-captioned using speech-to-text technology.

Videos on YouTube are limited to 10 minutes unless you are part of YouTube's Partner Program for commercial content creators. More information on YouTube's Partner Program is available at www.youtube.com/t/partnerships_faq.

In order to upload videos to YouTube, you must have a YouTube account, and it must be linked to a Google account. You also have to be using a Wi-Fi connection. It's simply too much to upload on a 3G network, and Android 2.1 will refuse to even try. Android 2.2 will let you do it, but it will still take a long time and use a lot of bandwidth.

You can upload from the Gallery app by viewing the album that contains the video and double-clicking the Menu button. Click the video or videos, and then click Share and select YouTube. Choose an account, a title, a description, tags, and whether you want the video to be public or private; then click Upload.

NOTE: When you give public photos and videos tags and descriptions, keep search in mind. Use terms that you think people searching for that video would use, and do not skip fields.
