How to Upload a Video to Photobucket
More than just pictures, users can also upload videos to Photobucket. This popular photo sharing online site has now expanded to accommodate user videos, and there's a very wide range of file formats that Photobucket accommodates. Shockwave Flash or SWV format videos can only be uploaded by paid members. But, don't worry; if you're a free member, chances are you'll still be able to upload your choice video to your account. Here's how:
Step 1: Log In
Just go to the Photobucket site, and log in your username and password. Then, go to your account Home.
Step 2: Choose Upload Options
On your account Home, there is an upload box. If your video file is in your computer, make sure that the My Computer option is selected. If you're copying the video from another website, select the web URL option.
Underneath the "Upload images & videos" button is a link for "more options". Click this. Here, you can choose the resolution you want your video to be saved in, whether the standard 640 x 480, or the higher resolution 1024 x 768. Free memberships can upload up to 1MB of video or a total of 5 minutes playback. Choose if you want your videos stored in standard definition or high definition. All videos uploaded to Photobucket are converted to Flash Video or .flv format.
Step 3: Choose the File for Upload
Click on the "Upload images & videos" button. Here, you are taken to your files where you can select the videos you want to upload. Images and videos can be uploaded to Photobucket at the same time. If you have more than one file to upload, just press CTRL while you're making your selections. Then press Enter. A progress bar will appear and when this is done, then your video has been uploaded to Photobucket!
Step 4: Edit Title
Select your video from the recent uploads window, and select "Edit". From here, you can change your video title, tags and description. This will make your video easier to find and to remember.
Step 5: Share It!
The best part about having your video online in Photobucket is being able to share it with your friends and family. There are many ways to share your video. If you have a social networking site, then it's definitely a snap.
You can opt to copy the URL link of your file and send it via email. The recipients simply have to click on the URL link and they will get to view your video. If you have a social networking site, just click on Share and you will find icons of Twitter, MySpace and Facebook for one-click sharing. Choose any of these, and a link to your video will appear on your status message. If you have other social sites you want to post in, just click on Share and a pop-up window will appear. Here, you will have the option to share on other social networking sites and blog sites such as Friendster, Hi5, Multiply, Blogspot, Livejournal and more.
