Uploading videos to YouTube or any other online sharing platform like Facebook or Vimeo can be a lengthy task. But it doesn’t have to be. We have already talked about some of the reasons behind this problem in another post.

Things like the quality of your internet infrastructure, the number of devices shared on your internet connection, the age of your equipment, among other reasons can all make uploading videos a frustrating experience. So how can you upload videos to YouTube faster?

Clipchamp lets you upload videos to YouTube faster – making video files smaller before uploading.

The new Clipchamp makes uploading a breeze. Our technology can compress your video files without visibly reducing their quality. The smaller the video, the faster it will upload. Clipchamp also converts your video files to MP4 or WebM which are both optimal for YouTube processing.

We’ve updated our website to make the compressing process easier for you. Follow this simple guide to start uploading videos to YouTube faster!

Step 1: Go to clipchamp.com and select Convert Video File.


Select Convert Video File if you have a pre-recorded video ready to go. Otherwise you can record a new video using the Record with Webcam function.

Step 2: Sign in with Google, Facebook or Email.


Don’t worry if you don’t have a Clipchamp account already, simply sign up in a few seconds using your existing Facebook, Google or email account.

Step 3: Choose the video file you wish to compress.


Select the video file you want to compress, or drag and drop it into the box.

Step 4: Optimize your video file for YouTube.


Choosing the Optimize For Web setting will compress and convert your video to the settings optimal for uploads to YouTube. You can change the resolution, format and quality further if you wish. We do the rest!

Step 5: Upload to YouTube while your video is processing.

Use the Upload and Share function and select YouTube to start the upload process while the video is getting converted. Type in the title and description for your video and select the sharing option (private, unlisted or public). The upload to YouTube will start as soon as Clipchamp’s processing is finished.

Step 6: Watch your video on YouTube!

Click Watch Your Video On YouTube to take you straight to your channel, and voila! Your video will be ready to go in your account within a few seconds.
