Video: Uploading video to Facebook or YouTube

Posting your video online is a great way to share your movies. Just click a few buttons and your video is on public display for the world to see. Premiere Elements has incorporated tools for sharing your movie to three popular video sharing sites--YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook--right in the program. We've got our movie on our timeline here, and it's all set. We'd like it to upload to these sites. We'd like it to upload in the most optimized format possible. The program is going to do all that automatically for us.

Uploading video to Facebook or YouTube

Posting your video online is a great way to share your movies. Just click a few buttons and your video is on public display for the world to see. Premiere Elements has incorporated tools for sharing your movie to three popular video sharing sites--YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook--right in the program. We've got our movie on our timeline here, and it's all set. We'd like it to upload to these sites. We'd like it to upload in the most optimized format possible. The program is going to do all that automatically for us.

To share our site online, we go to Publish+Share in the upper-right corner of the program and click on that and select the Online option, and here we can see that you have the option to share to YouTube, to Facebook, or to Vimeo. Now, I'm going to click on Facebook here. The very first time you do this, when you click the Next button, it's going to ask you to authorize the connection. You only have to do it once. Click on it. It'll open your web browser and send you to the Facebook site. All you've get to do is sign in and then come back to this program and click Complete Authorization and you're done.

After that, you'll never have to do it again. I've already done it on this computer, so I click Next, and you see that it logged me in and I can name my file, I can provide a description, and I can decide who sees it: Everyone, Friends of Friends or Friends Only. Then you click Upload and walk away. You are done. It will optimize the file, transcode it into a format that is ideal for Facebook, and load it up to the site automatically. If I click Cancel, I can go back. Let's select Online.

YouTube and Vimeo work very similarly. You select the site and from the Preset menu, you can select what quality of video goes up there. Now, before you jump ahead and go right to a High Definition Video, know that the higher definition your video the more challenges it may have as it's streaming to your viewers. So Lower Definition Video, you can be sure to go anytime a day just fine. If your viewers might have a slower connection or they are trying to watch your video during a high-traffic time and you have a high-definition video up there, it may not load quite as smoothly.

So you can go with the default setting, or you can go with High Definition. It doesn't matter, if you have got a High Definition Video to begin with of course. And we click on Next. Same thing. The very first time you use it you're going to have to log in. I'll log in, click Next. The very first time you do this, once again you're going to get an authorization screen. It'll just launch your browser, take you to the website, you log in, come back to the program, and click Complete Authorization, and you're done. You never have to do it again. With YouTube, you name your video, provide a description.

This is required, by the way, a description. You don't have to have much in here. And include any tags you want. Tags of course will help somebody when they're searching YouTube for your video, to be able to find whatever subject matter you're covering here. So in this case we're covering, say, Organic Farming. And you can choose what Category the video goes to: Is it Comedy, is it Education, is it Science and Technology? Click Next and it allows you to choose whether or not this is for public viewing or whether it's only for people you invite to see the video.

Once you've done that, you click the Share button. The file is optimized, sent up to YouTube or Vimeo, and just like that, you just walk away. It's done. By incorporating these tools for sharing your video online into the program, Adobe made the process of uploading your movies to YouTube and Facebook and Vimeo just a part of your video editing process. The video is delivered to the sites in an optimized format at the ideal specs for that particular site. By the way, in addition to these tools, take a look at the Publish and Share options that are in the Elements Organizer.

That's the program that comes bundled with Premiere Elements. And you'll also find options for uploading your videos to not only just Vimeo and YouTube and Facebook, but also Flickr, Photoshop Showcase, and even Adobe Revel. And that will greatly expand the ways that you can share your movie masterpiece with the world.
