Making Your Own You Tube Video

A lot of people wanting to create their own youtube video. Most of them haven't have the right tool to make their own vidoe. I bet more of them also do not own camcorder, video camera or whatever they called it.

But thanks to google with their great stuff. Introducing the Picasa3, google picture application. Now any newbie also can create their own video using their own picture. Picasa3 from Google now has a nifty little button called "Make Movie" which will make a slideshow of any photos you choose from a Picasa album. You can add audio (make sure it's public domain or copyright free!) There are a variety of ways to display and scroll your photos, you can add text slides in between, you can add captions to each photo, and much more!

Then once you create the movie, you can automatically upload it to YouTube (I had trouble with that feature) but you can easily upload it through your YouTube account.

Here are steps how to create your own video

Viewing Video files in Picasa 3
You may have several video files in your library right now and not even know it! Picasa 3 gives you an easy way to find out. Just click the filter, ‘Show Movies Only.’ You’ll find the filters at the top of the Picasa window in the middle. Movies is the 4th filter, and it looks like a little piece of movie film. Click that once and now the only items that will be showing in your library are video files.

Uploading Video Files to Web Albums
You can select video files just like you can select photos. When you click once on it, it appears in the ‘picture tray’ or ’selection area.’ Then, anything that is selected will get uploaded to your Picasa Web Album just by clicking the Upload button (in Picasa 2 this was the Web Album button.) When your friends and family view your Picasa Web Album, they will be able to play your video as easily as as viewing your photos!

Uploading Video Files to Youtube
Picasa 3 has added a lot of new functionality for video files, including a single-click method to upload to Youtube. When you double-click on any video file, you will see the ‘Upload to Youtube’ button at the left. Click on that, make sure you are logged in to your Youtube account, fill out the information fields, and click ‘Upload Video.’ Picasa 3 takes care of all the rest. Just sit back and wait - this will take a while. And, once it’s uploaded, then Youtube still takes more time to ‘process’ it. It may even take a day, but then you can go to, log in to your account, and view the video. You can also send a link to anyone else so they can view it too. OR embed it in your blog.
