Before you upload your video
Make sure YouTube supports your video file
Before you can successfully upload your video to YouTube, make sure the platform supports your video format. Luckily, this is YouTube—a platform dedicated entirely to video—so it supports most file formats. You can find the full list here:
  • .MOV
  • .MPEG4
  • .MP4
  • .AVI
  • .WMV
  • .FLV
  • 3GPP
  • WebM
  • DNxHR
  • ProRes
  • CineForm
  • HEVC (h265)
If your video file type isn’t listed above, you will need to re-export it using a supported format. Alternatively, you can check out  YouTube’s troubleshooter for conversion help. 
How to upload a video to YouTube 
Step 1 
Log in to your YouTube account.
Step 2
Click on the video icon at the top right-hand side of the window, which can be found next to your user icon, messages, apps and notifications.
Step 3
Click ‘Upload a Video.’ 
Step 4
Then, press ‘Select files’ to find the video file saved on your computer. Or, you can drag and drop it into the window.
Step 5
Now publish your video. 
Select your privacy settings (we suggest private for our competition)
Privacy settings allow you to control who can and can’t see your video. YouTube provides the following options in the uploading process: 
  • Public: Anyone can view your video and it will show up in YouTube search results. This is the standard setting and if you use YouTube to market your business or expand your reach, you’ll want to make your videos public. 
  • Unlisted: Unlisted videos are still public, but you’ll need to provide people with a direct link to see the video. In addition, these videos won’t appear in the YouTube search results or your video feed. For marketing purposes, you can use unlisted videos to promote exclusive deals or events. 
  • Private: Only you have viewing access.
Once you’ve selected your preferred option, click ‘Save.’
After you upload your video
Now that you’ve successfully uploaded your video to YouTube, share the link to the venture dash platform.
