Faster Way to Upload Videos to YouTube
Are you tired and frustrated of YouTube videos taking soooo long to upload? For me, video uploading was the slowest part of my online video creation process and it was driving me nuts! I wasn’t the only one apparently. My friend Shelly Allen was frustrated with YouTube because it was taking her 30 mins to upload a 4 minute video. Time is precious so I knew there must be a faster way…and there is. This video will show you how to save yourself hours of upload time without sacrificing the quality of your videos.
The secret to speeding this is up is to use a video converter to convert your videos to a format significantly smaller in size (without losing quality), before uploading it to YouTube. There are many video converters out there, but I highly recommend a free video converter called MPEG Streamclip. It is very simple to use, available for Mac or PC, and will create a small yet high quality .mp4 YouTube-friendly video file.
Depending on your computer, the video converting process make take a few mins, but is worth the wait. The advantage is that the video convert happens on your computer and is not affected by the speed of quality of your Internet connection and the resulting file is significantly smaller and will take a lot less time to upload to YouTube.
As a bonus, this video converter can also be used to convert between various video file formats (MOV, AVI, MP4, etc) which may come in handy when editing your videos in certain video editing software packages.
