I’m baffled. I created a 720p HD video that I uploaded to YouTube just now, but when the site made the video available to view, it was only in non-high-def resolutions of 360p and lower. What happened to the HD resolutions and how do I get this to work properly?
I’ve given my kids my old iPod Nano and they’ve been taking all sorts of videos with it. Now they tell me that some of them are good and they want to upload them to YouTube. Except while I know how to get an iPhone video on the site [see my tutorial: Upload iPhone videos to YouTube for details -Dave] I have no idea how to get the video off the iPod and onto my iMac.
I spend a lot of time making short videos with my iPhone 5 and uploading them to YouTube. I’d like to have them automatically also appear on Facebook and Google Plus, but when I use the Apple iPhone camera app and upload the video, I then have to log in to YouTube and manually share the videos. Tedious, to say the least. Is there a better option? I have heard that YouTube has a “Capture” iOS app?
If you’re a content producer, you should already be creating and posting videos on YouTube. With millions of searches every hour, and billions of videos viewed weekly, it’s another important place to attain visibility for your company, products and services.
But how do you know whether people like your videos? Sure, there’s the view counter and there’s a like/dislike indicator, but those are crude and almost pointless because someone who watches four seconds of your video and bails is counted identically to the next viewer who watches the video all the way through and visits your Web site immediately thereafter.
Turns out that the team at YouTube know this and have some pretty interesting analytics built into the video hosting service that offer a lot more insight. Let’s have a look…
I’ve been putting up a few videos on YouTube but am upset to see really crude and obscene comments left by others. I don’t want those! On the other hand, I do want good comments, those from people who have questions or just want to share their pleasant opinions. Can I selectively delete comments on my video on YouTube?
I’ve been uploading some videos to YouTube and am really frustrated by the thumbnail image that YouTube chooses for the video. It’s usually awful. Is there a way to change it and, ideally, to actually specify the exact frame I want to have used for a custom YouTube video thumbnail?
