The videos tab can be reached by selecting the Account heading in your drop down menu under your YouTube name.
When you reach the My Account screen you will find the Videos tab list in the first position and click it.
That brings you to the Uploaded Videos screen where all of the content you have created can be found.
At the top of the screen are the sort options for displaying the content by Title, Time, Date and views.
At the bottom of the data screen is a menu of options. That is where you can edit information and add annotation, captions and audio effects to your content.
The Play tab opens up your video in the search page of YouTube and plays it back. This lets you see how it is going to look to you viewers.
This is a very important tab. It allows you to edit all the text information in your titles and description box. It sets tags, category selection and the video thumbnail used to define your content. You can set the Broadcast and Sharing options for how you want your video to display, to whom and how. You decide how to share, whether you want to allow embedding, syndication, commenting or voting. You can define the date and geographic location of your content.
The edit tab is what allows you to optimize your content for the maximum SEO effect.
The annotations tab allows you to set text bubbles on your video for visual reenforcement and creative effect. You select the speech bubble,note,spot light or pause and enter the text message. You select the duration and set the position in the screen and save your settings.
