How to publish your videos like a Pro

"This tutorial assumes that you've already registered, you've been accepted and you're looking at the "Video Upload Form" for the first time.

  • First add video title

    First line on the form

    Click on the title line and add your preferred title.

  • Next: Select a category

    Choose only one category

    When you use a youtube video the image thumbnail will be automatically added to the video. When you upload your own video file you will need to add your own image...we suggest 1440 width by 720 height. However, any good quality, " landscape" orientation image is fine.
