Many mobile phones these days are equipped with camera phones. Have you captured something on our mobile that you want to share with others? It’s simple and easy to upload a video from your camera phone directly to YouTube. All you have to do is email the video to a unique email address given to you by YouTube, and the video is uploaded to your channel.
If you don’t already have a YouTube account, you need to create one. It’s quick and easy to create one. Point your browser to: http://www.youtube.com/ In the upper right hand corner, click “Create an Account.”
Fill in the necessary information to create an account. Create a username, select your location, provide additional personal information, read the terms of agreement, and then click “I Accept.”
Your username will become your YouTube URL. For example, AYM’s username is “youthmovements,” so our URL is http://www.youtube.com/youthmovements
You will be directed to a new page asking if you already have a Google account. If you do have one, enter you account email and password to add YouTube to your Google account. Don’t have a Google account? No worries. Just add a personal email address, create a password, and click “Create New Account and Finish.”
You will need to check your email and open a confirmation email from YouTube. Click on the link in the email to confirm your YouTube account. You will be re-directed to the YouTube homepage. You are ready to go!
Before you can upload videos from your mobile phone, you need to configure your account. Click on your username in the top right-hand corner of any YouTube page. In the drop-down menu, select “Account.” You will be directed to the Account Settings page.
On the left-hand side, select “Mobile Setup.” You will see a blue box that says: “Upload videos from your phone by sending them to:” followed by an email address. This email address is unique to you. Write it down, and add it to your contacts in your mobile phone.
Select a video file on your mobile phone, and email it to the email address you were given by YouTube. Videos sent to this address will be added to your YouTube channel!
Log into your YouTube account on your computer later to update information about the mobile video you uploaded - add a title, description, and tags, and set your privacy settings.
