More and more people are purchasing smart phones with data plans so they can stay connected even when they are on the go. YouTube has been available for smart phones since they gained in popularity and has even come out with an app that allows videos to be played directly from a smart phone.

This saves so much time because you don’t have to transfer the video from your phone and onto your computer to upload them.
Below are some other tips for using YouTube for smart phones.
Use a Video Editor App
There are many great video editing apps that can add music and other effects to you videos that you upload. Many of these applications are free to users and allow for a wide variety of features. Again, this means you don’t have to transfer your videos to your computer in order to edit and upload them. You can edit them, save them to your SD card and then upload them directly to YouTube. If you are using YouTube for your business this is a great way to post videos of promotions and events in real time. Your viewers can watch just minutes after an award ceremony or celebrity softball game.
Viewing on a Smart Phone Browser
Yes, your smart phone has a browser but it’s not set up to handle the file formats that are found on YouTube videos. There can be a lack of quality in the videos when you watch them from the browser rather than from the app. Most smart phones today come with the application already loaded onto it but if it is not, you can go to your phone’s application store and download the software for free. It only takes a few steps to be ready to watch and upload videos from your phone.Want to get more views to your videos? Check out this website for quick views.

You can choose color effects for the video before you record it as well as the YouTube default resolution settings or other resolutions depending on how much space you want the saved file to take up on your phone.
