How to Upload or Post a Video on YouTube

YouTube offers quite simple uploads for your videos, but it is true that you will have to adapt to some formats, especially in terms of the type of video file. Specifically, these are the formats supported by the platform:

  • .MOV
  • .MPEG-1
  • .MPEG-2
  • .MPEG4
  • .MP4
  • .MPG
  • .AVI
  • .WMV
  • .FLV
  • 3GPP
  • WebM
  • DNxHR
  • ProRes
  • CineForm
  • HEVC (h265)

In case it is different, you should use your video editor to save it in any of the above mentioned. You must also take into account that at most, you can upload videos of up to 15 minutes in length, having to verify your YouTube account if the video is longer.
