How to Upload Videos

Need help uploading videos to the community? Check out these instructions and reach out to a staff member if you need more help.

First thing you’ll need to do is record your video. Show us anything you’d like to share and if you’re unsure, check the community guidelines!

Upload your video to YouTube

Go to youtube.com. If necessary, create a YouTube account by clicking the Sign In button at the top of the site. This will give you the option to sign in with a Google email, but you can also create an account using a non-Google email if you’d like :)

YouTube HomePage

Once you’ve created an account, go to your channel. Here, you’ll be asked to upload a video to your channel. The video can be public or private, your choice!

YouTube Channel

Once you click Upload Video, all you need to do is grab the video from your computer or phone and drop it in.

Uploading YouTube videos

After your video is uploaded, go ahead and give it a name and choose whether you’d like the video to be public or private. After that, you can publish!

Add your media to a post

If you’d like to add a video to your post, take the link for your video you got from YouTube and paste it into the text box. Then go ahead and add any other message you’d like to include and click save. The video will show up in a player people can see in your message!
