Guidelines for uploading video

Videos should be uploaded to the MOBAC Libraries YouTube channel by the person who records the video. Contact the Technology Committee for the username and password for the channel. See the Upload videos – YouTube Help page for instructions on uploading. If your video is broken into multiple parts, you may want to create a playlist to display all parts together.

YouTube will process the video automatically, or you may choose to process it manually before uploading; see instructions below.
