Here are some tips:

  1. Be sure to check out the Technical Suggestions page for the best quality video settings!
  2. Try to catch people’s attention in the first minute (long intros might need to be shortened or simplified)
  3. You might want to find out if YouTube will block your content before you spend hours working on it
  4. Consider using a popular song but do not include original instrumentals, lyrics, or vocals
  5. Visual presentation preferred, but can be audio only (see Submission Rules 7 and 8)
  6. In addition to on-screen text, closed captions are encouraged
