Use the Camtasia 9 Share option to post a video directly to YouTube.
- [Instructor] One of the first mistakes new video creators make is sharing a project file. When I go to file, save as, then name my project, that is my project file. It only works in Camtasia Studio on my computer. I can go back in there and edit tracks, edit the timeline, but it isn't a movie yet that I can share with other people. To actually produce and share a video file, I need to go to share in the top right corner. Basically the steps are the same for whichever video host you choose.
Let's upload this video to YouTube. First, Camtasia wants to connect with my YouTube or Google account credentials. If you don't have an account, you'll have the option to create one here. I do have an account, so I'm going to connect it to Camtasia Studio. Camtasia and YouTube ask if they can use my information. Go to scroll down and click allow. Now I have the option to enter a title, a description. (instructor types) I can add tags if I so choose.
I can choose a category. And I can adjust the privacy settings. I'm going to set this as unlisted. Finally, I can click finish. Camtasia will now render and upload my video, which can take a while depending on the size of the project and my computer speed. Once that is complete, I will automatically be directed to YouTube where I get a message that my video is processing. This also can take a while, depending on the size of the video. I will need to refresh the page to see when the video is ready.
I don't need to keep checking though. I'll get an email from YouTube when my video is ready to use. I can then use whatever sharing options I want to distribute my video. Okay, it's your turn. Go ahead and connect and share your video with the video host of your choice.
