Introducing new YouTube upload and metadata edit pages

Uploaded by rewboss on 19.04.2012

Hello, I’m rewboss,
and I’m here to give you a quick guide to some of the important features
that YouTube has just added. So, without further ado...
Behold! My logo.
One thing YouTube has done is completely reorganise the Video Edit page.
In the past it was all on one big page that you had to scroll...
...and scroll... and scroll...
...and scroll.
Well now, everything is organised into tabs:
“Basic Info” for the most important stuff,
and “Advanced Settings” for the extra stuff.
And you don’t necessarily have to hunt for the “Save” button either,
because changes are automatically saved every few minutes,
even if you do nothing at all.
Although the button is there if you want it.
I mean, I suppose there is a reason you’d want it there.
It’s a nice thing to have.
And, um... it looks pretty.
If you’re able to monetize your videos,
you’ll notice one very big change:
now, you don’t have to fill out the old revenue share form.
Instead, you just monetize your video and select what type of ads you want to appear.
[EPIC VOICE] But that doesn’t mean you have free reign to...
[NORMAL VOICE] I’m so sorry, I have no idea where that came from.
Anyway, as I was saying:
that does not mean you have free rein to upload anything you want.
YouTube will be checking.
Here’s a small tip:
I actually keep a spreadsheet of all the videos I make,
with details of all the material I use, just in case YouTube ever asks.
This tip was provided to you free by the rewboss channel.
Also, if you are a partner,
up until now you’ll have using the tired, old uploader.
Well, good news, because finally you get to access the shiny new uploader!
And for full partners, a few extra goodies just for you.
First, you now have the ability to upload a custom thumbnail
on the video upload page itself.
So not only do you not have to scroll through an overly long video edit page,
you don’t even need to find a video edit page at all.
Just wait for the video to upload and process, and then upload your thumbnail.
And after all this time, finally, scheduled publishing works.
At least, it should do:
if it doesn’t, they’re going to get Chuck Norris to beat the software into submission,
but YouTube is fairly certain they’ve finally ironed out all the kinks.
To use scheduled publishing in the new interface,
you need to start uploading the video as private.
Then, on the next page, you’ll see a scheduled publishing option.
Activate it, and then set a date and time.
You can then sit back and relax, and know
that your video will be published at the time of your choosing,
even if you’ve been kidnapped by aliens.
