We all know that Windows Phone has a few limitations, and one of the most common complaints we hear about is the lack of video sharing options. Well if your phone has recently been blessed with the 7.5 Refresh update (aka Tango), you may have noticed that those complaints have become a thing of the past. Videos can now be uploaded to Facebook directly from the phone, as well as 'shared' via Messaging, Email, and even SkyDrive.
But what about YouTube? The world's biggest online video sharing website doesn't have a home in that list of options, but that doesn't mean you can't do it. All Phone News tipped us to a very clever workaround to getting your videos up on YouTube by using the website's upload by email feature.
Here are the steps:
- Go to YouTube.com on your desktop browser
- Create or sign into an existing account.
- Go into your account settings and you should see “Mobile Uploads” and an email address that ends in “@m.youtube.com”
- Save that email address into your contacts (or just make a note of it).
- Open your email on your phone and type your YouTube address and attach your video and click send!
- Now sit back and ENJOY!
Alternatively you could use an app like the excellent Social Camera or even the uploading feature found in PrimeTube to get those precious or hilarious viral moments on YouTube. But the problem with those methods is that you either need to film the video within the app, or upload the video to SkyDrive and then to YouTube. This technique has its own downsides too since you can't edit video info until after publishing, but we still think this is probably the best method as of right now to publish clips you've already recorded to YouTube.
Give it a try and let us know how it worked out for you in the comments!
