It's not surprising that 5 billion users come to YouTube every day. Some of you would upload HD video to YouTube for sharing the music video, game video, vlog, tutorial, comedy sketch, or more.
It requires longer time and faster network to upload 720p, 1080p, and UHD 4k video to YouTube, or the video quality on YouTube will be unfaithful. So, what’s the best way to upload HD 720p/1080p/4k videos to YouTube? This article offers a walkthrough to help newcomers and anyone with a concern.
Virtually, the way to upload HD video to YouTube is the same as posting the standard video. Just make certain the uploading videos are original and in 720p/1080p/4k high definition. For Beginners, you need to register a new YouTube account firstly. After that, follow the steps below:
YouTube accepts a large scale of video formats. If your current format can’t be recognized by YouTube, you’d convert it to an appropriate one with a video converter tool.
As stated above, you should ensure your 720p/1080p/4k HD videos are in the formats that YouTube supports. These include MPEG4, WebM, WMV, FLV, 3GPP, MOV, AVI, and MEGSPS files. If not, Cisdem Video Converter for Mac enables you to convert HD videos to the best video format for YouTube.
