NOT SO SIMPLE STEPS TO UPLOADING A CAMCORDER VIDEO ONTO YOUTUBE (BUT WELL WORTH IT):
(Sample on www.stephaniejacques.com)
1. I video the property using a regular camcorder
2. Transfer the VHS to DVD
3. Then convert DVD to a wmv or avs file on my computer using special software. (I am using 123DVD Converter, but there are several out there priced around $30+/-.)
4. If your computer is equipped with Windows Media Player, you can then playback your video, from which you'll upload different clips and remove ones you don't want (as well as arrange an order for viewing) using Windows Movie Maker.
5. Last, you would register for an account on Youtube, upload a video, and you can do additional editting or ad music through the Youtube selection. If you have a website, you can add the code to the page and the video will appear.
THE EASY SUGGESTION:
With the right equipment, which I need to get, it becomes easier to post a listing onto Youtube. You can now buy a DVD recording camera that plugs right into your computer to upload the video for editting prior to placement on Youtube.
I've been experimenting with posting my listings on Youtube, and including them on the front page of my website. I realized have a lot to learn and much practice to have with working the video, though it's quite fun and has potential to be really effective. Here's my site at www.stephaniejacques.com
Yes, I have a lot of improvement to make, but it's a start!
