If you use Google Photos on your phone, they’re already there! All you have to do is go to your Youtube channel and select the videos you want.
- Youtube.com and log in with the same Google Account you use for Photos
- Click the Upload button and you will then see the Import Videos card
- Click Import
- You should now be seeing all your videos that have been uploaded to your Google Photos account – usually that is the videos taken with your phone. Click any that you want to appear in your Youtube channel, then click the Select button in lower left
- Youtube needs to “process” your videos for the best playback experience. On this screen, you can add a custom Video name, description, and tags – but you don’t have to. Just click the blue Publish button in the upper right, and you’re done.
