YouTube Channel Redesign – Part 4 – Video Manager
Video Management To Optimize Your Content
In this video we take a look at the new video manager interface and what it can do for our video management.
Select Video Manager
To go to the Video Manager, your go to your main drop down box in the upper right corner of your main nav bar with the box of your channel name and select Video Manager from the drop down.
The main Video Manger page will have a left hand side bar and a main column showing all your videos in chronological order.
At the top of the left sidebar is an “upload” button that is self explanatory. There are other functions also there such as setting up to record with your webcam, creator tools and promoting your ads.
Under this button is a array of functions:
You can select any of these functions. So you can check out your uploads, playlists, history, your watch laters, your favorites or your likes.
This gives you a lot of options to manage your video needs in one easy place.
The other thing is that the video manager gives you a lot of information in the main channel column in the page.
The column header has two buttons in the nav bar, “Add To” and “Actions” that activate when you select a video from your upload list.
The Add To lets you add your video to a playlist or whatever list you want.
The Actions button lets you delete your video, set your privacy setting or select your copyright preference.
There is a search box on the right that comes in handy when you want to find a video from a long list of uploads.
And there are some icons in the video box that tell you if the video is public, if it is monetized, and all the way to the right, how many times it has been viewed and how many comments there are.
The main button of interest is the edit button in a video box.
Click that and you go to an edit screen that lets you review and change all sorts of information form the description and tags to privacy, geo targeting, and how the public can interact with your content.
In the main nav bar on this page you will be able to go to Info Settings, Monetize your video, technically enhance, annotate, set captions, view your video on the youtube search result page and return to the video manager homepage.
All in all the video manager function offers a lot of options for optimizing the video experience. So you should check it out.
Check out the video and you’ll get a much better idea of how it all works.
In the meantime, stay with it, stay well and talk soon.
