How to create Youtube videos online [ Using your digital camera, webcam or cell phone ]

Make a movie using a digital camera, web cam, or cell phone. An old VHS will only work if you transfer it to a digital file—you’ll need a digital converter to plug an older camcorder into the computer. You can upload a YouTube movie directly from a phone if you set up a Mobile Profile in YouTube. With a high speed connection, it should generally take a few minutes, give or take.

Step 2 Edit your movie. Programs such as Mac’s iMovie or Windows’ MovieMaker are both good—add titles, effects, cut out a bad take, etc.

Step 3 Resize the video so it looks best in YouTube. The site accepts QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files at 340x240 resolution. There’s a 100MB size and 10 minute length limit.

Step 4 Create a YouTube account. Click on Upload Videos in the upper right corner of the home page.

Step 5 Create a title, description, tags, category, and set language. The more information the better to help people find the video.
