View Full Version : Is there a system or tool that allows me to schedule videos on Youtube
10-31-2011, 07:30 PM
I actually stepped way out of my box and have made and starred in a series of Youtube videos. (Yikes!) I am interested in scheduling them to run one a day.
I can not find anyway to schedule this like I can with Wordpress. Is there such a way or do I have to go and upload them daily? (Do not want to do this!)
Thanks for any help

First of all, a big CONGRATS for stepping out of your box! That's great.
As for scheduling YouTube videos, I don't know of a way to do it. However, you could upload them as Private and then just switch them to Public daily. That would give you a chance to optimize the listings for each video when you upload them. You'd only have to click a button or two to make the switch.
Also, if you haven't looked into Bob Jenkins' outstanding Simple Video course (http://www.simplevideocourse.com) (affiliate link), I highly recommend it. As a graduate, I can tell you it is rocking!

Thanks Karon, I've made some videos before but have never been in front of the camera.
I didn't like it but now I know I can do it.
I thought of the private option too. Just looking for more fix it and forget it option. I checked out the Simple Video course. I will have to fit it in to the schedule.

You can schedule videos if you are a YouTube partner. So if you are a partner, there will be a drop down box next to the upload button to select when you want to publish. Reading through the YouTube help forum it seems that marking a video private and then making it public later does not announce the video to your subscribers. Commenters reported a significant drop off in views using this technique.
Here's the page that talks about the scheduling option for partners: http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1270709

Remember too that YouTube is not the only game in town. Well worth it to add Viddler, Vimeo, Veoh, MetaCafe, and DailyMotion. I've found that many bloggers in other niches will go to their favourite site to find embeddable videos for their blog (for one of my videos, it was Veoh that got me lots of exposure to my target niche).
