In the modern age mobile phones and tablets are quickly replacing regular desktop and laptop computers and this is something YouTube have noticed. Posting and sharing video clips online using YouTube has just got a lot more simpler. YouTube, the popular Video sharing site, now lets us upload videos to their servers using email instead of their the web based video up-loader.
YouTube has added a new feature to upload video using mobile phones, we will use this to upload videos to YouTube by email. The trick is to create a Mobile profile on Youtube and you receive the email address to which you can send the videos.
If you are familiar with YouTube then you are familiar with the domain. Just kidding!
To find the email address that is fully associated with your YouTube profile go to:
There you will see email address as shown in the following image:
The options I have marked as 1-3 denotes:
- It is your regular email address associated with the YouTube profile. It is not the one that we are talking about.
- This is the customised email address for your profile to upload video via email. You can upload .avi, .mpg and .mov via email.
- If you don’t like the look of this email address or your email address being compromised click the option to change to a different email address.
That’s it! Now all you need to do is compose an email message, attach the video and send it to a special email address assigned by Youtube. You will soon find your video on Youtube servers. No mobile phone required. Even from modern mobilephones you can do it! You have to edit the video description from the main site whenever you login to the website.
Just make sure the length and size of the video attachment is within YouTube’s limit and the format is either .AVI, .MOV, or .MPG.
