You can upload a YouTube movie directly from a phone if you set up a Mobile Profile in YouTube. With a high speed connection, it should generally take a few minutes, give or take.
2- Edit your movie. Programs such as Mac’s iMovie or Windows’ MovieMaker are both good—add titles, effects, cut out a bad take, etc.
3- Resize the video so it looks best in YouTube. The site accepts QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files at 340x240 resolution. There’s a 100MB size and 10 minute length limit.
4- Create a YouTube account. Click on Upload Videos in the upper right corner of the home page.
