*The following is information to assist you in entering the video contest

How do I upload a video to YouTube?

There are many methods, depending on where your video is currently stored and what technology you have available to you. We encourage you to google how to upload a video to YouTube and then browse around once you have finished. YouTube is a treasure-trove of funny cat videos.

What is an unlisted video and how do I upload one to YouTube?

An unlisted video is a different type of private video. "Unlisted" means that only people who know the link to the video can view it (such as friends or family to whom you send the link). An unlisted video will not appear in any of YouTube's public spaces (such as search results, your channel, or the Browse page). An unlisted video is different to a private video in these ways:

  • you don't need a YouTube account to watch the video (you can see an unlisted video if someone sends you the video's link)

  • there's no 25 person sharing limit

You can choose to make any of your uploads an unlisted video in your YouTube Account settings. Here’s how:

  1. Sign into your YouTube Account

  2. Go to your My Videos page

  3. Select the video which you’d like to make an unlisted video. Click the Edit button to access the video’s settings.

  4. Go to the Privacy section of the page. There you’ll see the option to mark you video as “unlisted”, “public”, or “private”. Select unlisted.

  5. Don’t forget to click the Save Changes button. Once you’ve done this your video will be an unlisted video.

How do I submit a YouTube link?

  1. Launch the YouTube video in any Web browser.

  2. Click the "Share" button beneath the video pane to bring up a shortened video URL

  3. Highlight it and then press "Ctrl-C" to copy it.

  4. To add the URL to the email, right-click on a vacant area within the message and then select "Paste."

  5. After you send the email, the recipient can either click the URL within the email or copy it to the address bar of a Web browser to view the YouTube video.
