Because this class is all about making videos, you need to know how to upload your videos to share the content with your peers, the teaching staff, and (possibly) the world. You’ll have to upload your videos, for example, a reflection vlog, and acquire a URL or embed code before posting them on the class

Some video editing software allows you to directly export your video clips to YouTube. This explanation, however, will be dealing with video files (.mov, .mp4, etc.) that you can render and export to your computer, or import directly off of your (phone) camera.

After you have your video file, you have to choose where to upload it. YouTube will probably be the easiest choice for everyone, as you automatically have a YouTube account if you use Gmail. However, this explanation will also cover Vimeo for those of you who would prefer to upload videos there.

For YouTube, the video upload process can take as little as two steps. First, click the Upload button in the upper right corner of your browser.


Then, choose a video file to upload. The drop-down menu gives you three options: Public, Unlisted, and Private. Unlisted videos mean that you must have the link to view them (they are not available through YouTube or Google’s search function), and Private means only certain email addresses that you specify can view the video. I would recommend uploading Public orUnlisted.


After your video is uploaded, you can specify settings like the Title, a Video Description, Tags, and more advanced features like Comments. This class doesn’t have any mandatory requirements for this part of the upload process.


As soon as you upload your video, it will undergo Processing by YouTube and then be available for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

Vimeo is not much different than YouTube. After logging in to your Vimeo account, there is a ‘Upload a video’ button in the upper right area of the page.

Then, you will be able to upload a video and specify basic settings like the Title, Description, Tags, Content Rating, and Thumbnail. Be careful, though, because a free Vimeo account limits the amount of video you can upload per week. I’ve personally found that the Processing time takes a bit longer here than on YouTube, because Vimeo prioritizes paying members.


If you are having any trouble uploading videos to either of these websites, or have any other questions regarding video exporting and uploading, please submit a question to the class blog or email Ceri (ceriley) directly!
