Transcript:Upload Videos to Google Video

Hi, I'm Don Schecter for About.com Computing. Today I'll show you how to upload your movie to Google Video.

Make sure it is a video that you have made and have the legal rights to share. It should be in an MPEG, Quicktime, Real, Windows, or AVI file.

Sign Into Google Video

Go to video.google.com and click on the "upload a video" link at the top of the screen. Now enter your Google account information. If you don't have one, you can get one, and registration is free. Click "sign in."

Uploading Videos Under 100MBs

Videos under 100MBs can be uploaded directly from your browser. To upload your file, click the browse button and find where it is on your computer. Select it and click open. Now type a title and description for your video. Both of these entries are used as keywords for people to find your video.

Set Video Rules
Next you can select a genre and a language. You can also make your video public where people can view it by a search, or you can make it unlisted which means your video will not turn up in search results. This option is particularly good if you have a family video which you can email links to your family members so they can view it.

Upload the Video
Check the check box to agree to the terms and conditions. Now click upload video. Once it has uploaded, you can email the link to your friends or if you click the "email," "blog," "post to myspace button," you can do just that.

Uploading Videos Over 100MBs

If your video is over 100MBs, click the desktop uploader. This will enable you to upload a larger video. Click "I accept the terms of service," then click on where it says "click to get started." Click on "learn more" under the Google video uploader and information will appear below.

Insall the Uploader
Depending on what system you run on your computer, click the appropriate installer. Read the directions below so you know how to use the uploader to put your videos on the Web. Open the uploader once it is installed.

Upload the Video
Click "login" to log in with your user name and password. Click "submit" and then "ok." Now click "add," find your movie file and click the check box that you certify that you have rights to the video. Then click "upload now."
