How To Optimize Your YouTube Videos Online
By the time you finish reading this post, over 48 hours of new video content has been uploaded to YouTube.com — that’s a lot of videos each and every minute, day after day.
So the question quickly becomes, how do you make your videos stand out from the crowd?
The first answer is the make sure each video you upload is nice to look at and good enough to pass along. The actual video quality matters.
YouTube has wised up and added one feature I’ve long said they need to give casual users like you and me who want to upload periodic videos to the site. They’ve finally added an EDIT capability. Yea!
Now, you can do some *very basic* video quality optimization so that your iPhone vids get a little polish before others see them online. The video stabilization feature is one of the most interesting options so that your shaky camera footage calms down a bit during playback.
I’d love for YouTube to add features like Animoto offers so that you can go to YouTube as a one-stop-shop for actually creating and editing your work and then publish online all in one spot. But till then, we’ll take whatever we can get that helps us share better quality videos…for at least some of that 48 hours of new content, minute after minute of the day.
