Publishing your content to YouTube (Become an expert)

Since its creation in 2005, YouTube has exploded in growth, now generating billions of views on a daily basis. As a result, it has become one of the world's largest social media sites and a great place to advertise your product and gain users over time. We will explore how to publish your content to YouTube in this section.

How to do it...

We will now investigate how to publish a Brainshark presentation directly to YouTube:

  1. On the presentation menu, click on the Publish To YouTube link.

  2. Prior to officially publishing your content, take some time to read over YouTube's restrictions and Brainshark's control over your content. This way, you can avoid unnecessary surprises.

  3. Grant access to YouTube to allow your video to be uploaded.

  4. Once the review process is over, you should find the video uploaded to your YouTube account.

How it works...

Brainshark will go through your YouTube account in order to upload the presentation. By converting each of the slides and audio into video format, it issues a video file that mimics the original. Thus, the video that ends up being uploaded is a separate entity from the Brainshark presentation. This means that changing the presentation means re-uploading it to YouTube.
