    Post a video to YouTube from your computer

    Do you want to post a video to YouTube from your computer? Yup? Very well, then the first step you need to take is to click here so that you can connect to the main web page of the famous Google video sharing service. Then click the button Log in located at the top right and if required enter the access data relating to your Google account.

    Once logged in to the service, click on the button Charge which is located at the top right and then drag the video on your computer that you want to publish online in the window located in the center of the YouTube web page. Alternatively, you can indicate "by hand" the videos that you intend to upload by pressing on the item Select i file da caricare. If you have videos stored on Google Photos you can also import them from there. To do this, just press the button Import placed under the heading Import your videos from Google Photos.



    Before selecting the video you intend to publish on YouTube, remember to set the privacy level of the same by pressing the button located in the center of the screen. By default, the privacy of the video is dictated on Public and then once loaded the movie is visible to all. Alternatively you can select Non in cast (public but not traceable in searches), Private (accessible only to you and to the people you decide to "invite") or planned (accessible only on certain days and times). The choice is yours.

    Once the video upload phase has started, fill out the form that is proposed to you by typing the title, description and tag to associate with the video. By pressing on the card Advanced Settings instead, you can also adjust the category to which the video belongs, choose whether and to which users to allow the insertion of comments and set the parameters relating to the embedding of the video on external sites.



    Caution: Before starting the procedure by which to publish a video on YouTube, also make sure that it does not contain any sequences or music pieces protected by copyright. Otherwise you could risk removing the content and reporting the channel!

    After filling out all the forms and adjusting the advanced settings click on the button Public. By doing this, the actual procedure will be started by which to publish a video on YouTube. The video will then be uploaded to the network and at the end of the upload the video will be shared automatically on YouTube. Keep in mind that the time needed for the video upload procedure to be completed may vary according to the quality of the Internet connection in use and according to the duration of the video file that you have chosen to publish on the famous video sharing platform.

    At the end of the upload procedure you can then edit your videos by adding annotations, subtitles, effects and soundtracks. To do this, click on the YouTube logo located at the top left, press the item Video management which is located at the top and then click on the button Modification placed next to the preview of the movie to be edited. As you can see it is very simple.

    In addition to publishing a video on YouTube as I have just indicated, you can take advantage of the special features made available by the famous service to create live videos using the webcam connected to your computer. To do this, press the button Charge placed in the upper right part of the YouTube homepage and then presses the button Start present under the heading Live streaming attached on the right side. Then click the button Start and stick to the simple directions that are shown to you.


    Also remember to allow YouTube to take advantage of the webcam and microphone that are connected to your computer by responding in the affirmative to the warning that appeared on the screen!


    In all cases, after publishing a video on YouTube you can keep it under control and make any further changes simply by pressing on your avatar in the upper right part of all YouTube pages and then pressing the button Creator Studio attached to the menu that is shown to you.

    After being able to publish a video on YouTube to be able to share it you will need to use the link or the appropriate code. To get the link or code through which you can share the video, start playing it by selecting it from your channel page and then click on the button Share. Alternatively, you can use the appropriate buttons for sharing in order to immediately post the video on Facebook, Twitter and so on.

    Please note: YouTube allows you to upload movies up to 15 minutes long. To remove this limitation and to upload videos with a maximum duration of 11 hours and / or a maximum weight of 128 GB, you must verify your identity by providing a valid mobile number. To verify your identity connected to the YouTube home page, click on the button Charge che si trova in alto a destra e seleciona la voce Increase your limit on the page that opens. Then indicate if you wish to receive an SMS or a call to verify your identity and type your mobile number in the text field that appears below and click on Send. To conclude, provide the verification code that you received on the phone and press again on Send but I will complete the procedure.
