How to Make a Video for Youtube

You might have been watching videos from Youtube and you also wanted to make your own. Well, it's easy actually and you can surely post your own videos too.

When I was first surfing the net before, I love watching videos from Youtube. I can even spend the whole day just to watch my favorite bands. I watch almost everything like movies, jokes, and what not. Maybe you also do. It's really amazing that Youtube is really popular specially now that it is owned by google.

Anyway, let's talk about the steps on how to make a video for Youtube:

How to Make a Video for Youtube Step 1 - Plan the Video that You'll Make

For you to make a video for youtube, you have to follow the steps done in video production. First, you have to conceptualize an idea. What do you wanted to show? Are you going to make a cover song? A short film? A tutorial? Whatever it is, you have to create that idea. If it's a bit complicated, it is better to write a script for you to follow.

How to Make a Video for Youtube Step 2 - Record the Video

It doesn't matter what type of camcorder you use; just record the video that you planned to make. Of course the better the camera, the better the output will be. Nowadays, DSLRs are already used in shooting professional videos. So if you have one, that is good for video shooting actually. There's no rule in what kind of video camera you need to use for Youtube so just use any gadget that you have as long as it can record videos. You can even use the web camera of your laptop.

How to Make a Video for Youtube Step 3 - Edit the Video

After recording the video, you can actually upload that immediately to Youtube if you like. But to make the video better by adding some effects and narrations, texts, sound effects, etc., it is better for you to edit it first. You can use any video editing software that you want to make the video according to your plan. Just make it interesting for people to see.

How to Make a Video for Youtube Step 4 - Output the Video

Since you are going to upload the video for the web, it is better to produce it into a lower video resolution. You can upload a high quality video to Youtube if you want but it may take a longer time. For those also who are watching and their internet speed is not that fast, it may take a long time for the video to buffer before they can watch the whole thing.

How to Make a Video for Youtube Step 5 - Upload the Video to Youtube

Once the video is produced, it is now ready to be uploaded to Youtube. Just log in to Youtube first. If you don't have an account yet, sign up first. When you upload your video to Youtube, it requires you to fill up the title, description, kind of video, and tags. Just fill up those things according to the kind of video you made. Just choose a title and tags that describes your video. It's good to target the keywords that people might type for them the watch the kind of video you made. In that way, they will be brought to your video and do some likes and give some comments.

Those are the steps on how to make a video for Youtube. All you have to do is learn the video production process and keep on practicing. You can be as crazy as you want. Just make it really cool. Who knows, you might be the next Youtube star!
