It is now possible to upload your videos straight to YouTube, so you don't need to download them yourself. This is especially useful when you want to upload multiple videos to create marketing campaigns that contain multiple videos.
Before you can upload any videos, first you need to connect the YouTube account you will be adding videos to.
Head over to the Connections page from the dropdown menu in the top right.
On the YouTube tab choose connect.
Select the Gmail account you use to manage your YouTube channel, then click the allow button for each section.
Once your account is connected it will be shown under the Company YouTube Channels section.
You can connect multiple YouTube channels, and they will all show in this section.
Now the channels are connected we're ready to upload videos.
Videos are uploaded from the video overview page of each creative.
Go to the video overview where the videos you want to upload are.
Using the multi-select option, choose all the videos you'd like to upload.
Once at least one video is selected, a new upload icon appears at the top of the page.
Once you choose upload, you have 2 options.
Choose the YouTube channel you would like to upload your videos to.
Choose who can see your videos once they are uploaded.
Private: Only people you choose can see your videos.
Public: Anyone who visits your channel can see your videos.
Unlisted: Your videos are not searchable, however can be accessed by anyone who has the link.
The public option is not currently available, however if you would like to enable it for your account please contact your account manager.
Once the channel and privacy options have been selected, click Upload.
Your videos will automatically begin uploading to YouTube in the background.
In order to keep track the status of uploaded videos, in each video preview panel is a video log.
The log will be updated with the status of each of your video uploads.
Once the video has been successfully uploaded, you will see Uploaded to YouTube.
Clicking anywhere on Uploaded to YouTube will copy the shortened video link, ready to be shared or viewed.
How many videos can I upload at once?
You can upload up to 50 videos at once. If you need to upload more you may upload in batches of 50.
Please note there is an overall daily upload limit applied by YouTube for each customer account.
Can I upload copyrighted content?
Uploaded videos from Video Brand Studio must still adhere to standard YouTube terms of service. Read more here.
My videos have names longer than 100 characters, do I need to rename them all?
No, any videos uploaded that have names over 100 characters will automatically be edited. The end of the names will be truncated, so be sure you don't have important information at the end of your video names.
Why can't I see my videos in my channel yet?
Some videos may take a few minutes to show up in your channel, depending on how large they are and also how many other videos are in the queue.
Which privacy setting should I choose?
If you will be using your videos in marketing campaigns, your videos need to be either public or unlisted.
