Improvements to YouTube Uploading
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
We've heard your feedback about uploading videos being a bit of a drag, so today we're announcing two improvements to make it easier.
Upload Notification Emails
Tired of refreshing the upload page to see if your video is finally done and ready to be watched and shared? Starting this week, we will send you an email to notify you that your video is done uploading and processing. You can then forward that email to friends or family for easy sharing.
Prefer not to receive these emails? You can opt out by visiting your
More Control Over Publishing and Sharing
Ever had a public video publish to YouTube before you’ve finished filling in its information? You’ll soon be able to decide when your video gets published, giving you as much time as you need to input the title, description, custom message to send to your subscribers, etc.
Until you tell us to publish your video, we'll treat it as private so it’ll be visible only to you. We’ll start rolling out this change next week, so hang tight if you don't see this change just yet-- and don’t forget to press Publish!
As always, if you want to share your feedback about these new features you can post in the
YouTube Help forum
or use the
link at the bottom of any YouTube page.
