How do I upload a Zoom meeting to YouTube?

Canvas has limits on the size of courses and using YouTube as a video repository is a great space saving tool.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to upload a recorded Zoom meeting to YouTube. 

Record your Zoom meeting

For more information about recording your Zoom meeting click here.

If you have activated the record feature during the course of your meeting, the video will automatically be saved to your local computer at the conclusion of your meeting. 

Log in to your myHumboldt Gmail account

Logging in to myHumboldt will allow you to use YouTube from the same Google account.

Within your Gmail tab, click the Google Apps button in the upper right corner of your screen, then locate and click YouTube.

You may have to click on more for additional Google applications.

Make sure you are actually signed in

You may have to click the Sign in in the upper right corner of your screen.

Upload your Zoom Meeting

Once in YouTube, you will see an upload button (an upward pointing arrow) in upper right corner. Click here to begin the upload process.

If this is your first time uploading you will be asked to create a YouTube Channel. If the user information looks correct, simply click 'Create Channel.'

Select or 'drag and drop' your video

From here, you can either click on the Select files to upload area to open a file browser, or simply drag and drop your video file.
