So you’ve created a YouTube channel and recorded your first video. Now we’re ready to upload that video. Let see how it’s done. I’ll show you how to upload from both a smartphone or from your PC.

If you’re using a phone, you’ll need to open up the YouTube app.  Make sure you’re logged into your account, t00.  Start by tapping the video camera icon at the top of the screen.

The first time you use, you’ll need to give permission for the app to access your pictures and video.

Click the music note icon to add music.

You’ll have a limited choice of songs. I wouldn’t add this if your video already has sound.
