StatEasy’s Guide to Technology: YouTube

The free video streaming site YouTube can be anyone’s best friend when used properly. In this week’s Guide to Technology, we’ll show you how to sign up, upload video, and share that video with others.

Step 1: Signing Up for YouTube

Youtube Home Page

YouTube Home Page

 

You can sign up for YouTube for free right from their Home Page. In the top right corner, click Sign In.

Since Google owns YouTube, you’ll be able to use your Gmail account to sign in. If you don’t have one, you can create an account free of charge.

Below the Sign In form is a link to Create an account. Creating an account with YouTube will give you access to everything Google offers (pretty awesome!).

 

 

Step 2: Uploading Video

Once you’re logged in, there is an Upload link directly to the right of the search bar. Click that link, and find the screen displayed below.

Uploading video to YouTube

 

You can click on the Up Arrow to upload videos from your computer, or you can simply click and drag the files into the window.

The duration of the upload will depend on your internet connectivity. The faster your internet connection, the faster the video will upload.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Title, Description, Tags, & Privacy Settings

Lastly, you can include a title for your video, add a description, create tags (keywords that make your video searchable), and manage the security settings. We recommend setting the video to Unlisted, so only those people you send the link to can view it.

Security Settings

Public – Anyone can search for and view video

Unlisted – Anyone with the link can view

Private – Only people you choose can view

 

We hope you find this week’s Guide to Technology useful and informative! Have a great weekend.

We utilized the stats on the bench to help us win a 5-set match against the 4th ranked team in the country! They were not using StatEasy by the way.

One of our major [focal points] is professional development… That is part of our mission, and this product, hands down, does that.

It gives that coach an option of showing their players instantly, not just their numbers, not just their stats, but film to back up what those numbers say, so that’s something that we think could be really special to the coach.

We believe it’s the model that is going to catch on once people realize the quality of the product.
