Things to keep in mind

  • If this is your first time, don't worry about making the perfect video. Getting started is key! You will have the option to edit video settings or delete the video later on.
  • There is no need for fancy equipment, what you have at hand will do.
  • Remember to have fun with it! Think about what inspires you and get started with that.

We recommend

Try uploading a test video to get comfortable with the steps. Use YouTube’s video privacy settings to set your video to public, private, or unlisted mode.
