How to use YouTube with Hubpages

This is a, how-to, on creating videos for YouTube to link to your Hubpages. This is a great way to get your videos and your blogs seen by cross-referencing your work, online.

Recommended Software:

Microsoft Movie Maker: This free program will actually allow you to add animated Title Pages. You can also add video clips and music using the drag-and-drop system. The software is pretty, easy to use. However, I will warn you upfront, it is a power hog so make sure you close out all other programs before export your video. Make sure you export the file as an AVI file. Also, be sure and use the NTFS High-Quality setting for best video results for playback on YouTube. HINT: Save often!

Sonar Home Studio: This program is not free but it is the preferred software for writing one’s own music. However, if you are not interested in making your own music make sure that what you do use is royalty free. Although this program is not free, it is fairly, inexpensive.

Daz3D Home Studio: Daz3D is a great resource for getting free 3D software for aiding you in creating backgrounds. As an avid user of Daz3D for two years now, one can say that, they are not for the faint of heart but they are great at teaching anyone to use 3D Graphic Software. This is great for making short animations using many of the free characters and objects they give away. Not to mention the Daz3D Home studio is free and come with Victoria 4.2, built right in.


So you do not lose your place, search for these items by opening a new browser or tab in your Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.

Getting Started:

Write your blog so you have a basic idea of what the video will need to look like. Poetry is fairly, simple for several reasons. The first reason is that you can copy and paste two lines of poetry per Title Page in Movie Maker. The second reason would be that the whole process takes about three hours to do and that is, with knowing what you are doing.

Another thing you will need is a Google Email, or Gmail, account. YouTube requires that you do and it is a great way to keep track of what you are doing in YouTube. Chances are, you probably already have a Gmail account for Google Adsense so that will solve that problem for you.

Once you have your video completed, upload the video to YouTube and be sure to add the exact same tags for the video that you plan on using for the Hubpage. Next, set up the Hubpage with the article you intend on posting. While doing this, you will see in the top right corner of the Hubpage, a box with various options including links. Choose the, ‘Video,’ option and head back to YouTube.

Back in YouTube, copy the website address for the video. The easiest way to get the link, for me, is to double click on the video and then copy the address from the address bar by holding down, CTRL and tapping the letter, ‘C’, on your keyboard.

Come back to Hubpages and click, ‘edit,’ on the video capsule and where you see the insert for the website address; click there, hold down, ‘CTRL,’ and tap the letter, ‘V,’ to paste the website address for your YouTube. Do yourself a huge favor before you hit save. Make sure you click, ‘Preview,’ which will let you know the video link is good. If your video comes up then you should hit, save.

Final Notes:

This recommendation is for anyone trying this. Post the blog and insert the Hubpage web address into your video so folks on YouTube can find your Hubpages space, as well.

If you have any suggestions, please fill free to post them in the comment box, below. Same thing goes for questions. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

The Death Squad: The Series

Update: January 24, 2011

Earlier, I suggested using the same tags in Youtube as I did for the article you are posting in Hubpages. However, I learned that this is not possible. Youtube tags only allow for the title of the video, now.
