How to choose the best video format for YouTube
There are a few different ways to upload video to YouTube from your iPhone. The most popular and easiest method is to simply upload a video from your camera roll in the YouTube app. However, you may have noticed that sometimes YouTube doesn’t accept certain video formats, or if it does, the quality isn’t as good as it could be. So how do you make sure you’re uploading the best possible video to YouTube from your iPhone?
The first thing to do is understand the different video codecs (the software used to encode and decode digital video) and container formats (the kind of file that holds the encoded data). The three most common codecs are H.264, MPEG-4 Part 2, and VP8; the most common containers are .MP4, .MOV, and .WEBM. Each codec has its own strengths and weaknesses, but in general, H.264 is the best choice for uploading to YouTube because it results in high-quality video with relatively small file sizes.
How to optimize your video for YouTube
To ensure that your video looks its best when uploaded to YouTube, we recommend encoding it using the h.264 codec. This codec is widely accepted by YouTube and other video sharing sites, and will produce good quality at a reasonable file size.
For the best results, we also recommend using a bitrate of 3-5 Mbps for standard definition (SD) videos, and 5-8 Mbps for high definition (HD) videos.
To encode your video using the h.264 codec in a high quality 3 Mbps SD file:
- Download and install the H.264 codec for Windows or Mac.
- Open your video file in your preferred video editing software.
- Select the h.264 codec from the list of available codecs.
- Set the bitrate to 3000 kbps (kilo bits per second).
- Save your encoded video file to your computer.
- Upload the video file to YouTube following these instructions
How to create a custom thumbnail for your YouTube video
Creating a custom thumbnail for your YouTube video is a great way to make your video stand out from the crowd. When you upload a video, YouTube will automatically generate several thumbnails for you to choose from. However, these thumbnails are often generic and don’t really give viewers a sense of what your video is about.
Creating a custom thumbnail gives you the opportunity to show viewers what your video is about, and can even be used to give viewers a preview of the content. This guide will show you how to create a custom thumbnail for your YouTube video using the iOS app.
First, open the YouTube app on your iPhone and sign in. Then, find the video that you want to upload and tap on it.
Next, tap on the “Edit” button in the top-right corner of the screen.
Scroll down and tap on the “Custom thumbnail” option. If this option is not available, it means that your video is not eligible for a custom thumbnail.
Tap on the “Choose photo” button and select the image that you want to use as your thumbnail. You can either choose an existing image from your camera roll, or take a new one. Once you’ve selected an image, tap on the “Use as thumbnail” button.
Finally, tap on the “Save changes” button and then upload your video as usual.

How to make money from your YouTube videos
When it comes to monetizing your YouTube videos, there are a few different ways to go about it. You can choose to run ads on your videos, or you can enable YouTube’s Super Chat feature, which allows viewers to pay to have their chat messages highlighted.
You can also choose to sell products or services through your YouTube channel. This could include anything from physical goods to digital products or even membership sites. If you have an existing following on another platform, such as Facebook or Instagram, you can use that to drive traffic to your YouTube channel and thus increase your earnings potential.
How to improve your YouTube channel
There are a number of ways you can improve your YouTube channel if you want to attract more viewers and subscribers. By following a few simple tips, you can quickly see an improvement in your channel’s popularity.
Consider using keyword-rich titles for your videos. This will help them show up more often in search results, both on YouTube and elsewhere on the web. In addition, be sure to use tags to describe your videos so that they can be easily found by interested viewers.
Make sure your videos are high quality and offer something of value to viewers. People are more likely to watch and share videos that are interesting, informative, or simply entertaining. Generic or low-quality videos are less likely to be successful.
Be active on YouTube by commenting on other people’s videos and responding to comments left on your own videos. This helps build relationships with other users and makes it more likely that they will subscribe to your channel. In addition, try to post new videos regularly so that viewers have a reason to keep coming back.
By following these tips, you can improve your YouTube channel and attract more viewers and subscribers. With a little effort, you can quickly see an increase in the popularity of your channel.
