How to Upload A Vaetas Video to YouTube


You may have recorded a video and uploaded it to your Vaetas account and then decided that you also wanted to share it on YouTube to market your video. This is easy-to-do and the following are the steps for how to first download your Vaetas hosted video to your hard drive and then upload it to your YouTube channel. Following this procedure, your uploaded video to YouTube will automatically be added to your Vaetas Connect video library.

By uploading your video through your Vaetas Connect account, your YouTube video will also be automatically added to your Vaetas video library. You can then add a high converting call-to-action and market your YouTube video to your social media accounts or embed them on your website. 

NOTE: It is not technically possible to download a Vaetas Connect video with the call-to-action and then upload it to YouTube. The videos play within each company's priority technology platforms. Only your video can included in this process.
