How to transfer a video from Google Drive and sync it with YouTube. 2016 Living in Australia in a backward internet country in 2016, I have to find little tricks so that small video files (less than 5 minutes long and 100mb) don’t take hours to upload to wherever I need them to be – so I upload them to Dropbox or Google Drive. Once in the cloud I can connect most services and then I don’t have to reupload them. Google Drive to YouTube proved to be a bit tricky.

In this video lecture, I show you how to take a video uploaded to Google Drive and synch it with YouTube so you don’t have to upload it twice.

The three links you need are:

https://plus.google.com/settings go to Photos and check Google Drive underneath ON.

https://photos.google.com/settings Google Drive ON.

https://www.youtube.com/upload Right hand side, import to YouTube from Google Photos (Videos).

Easy Peasy. Once you know that Google Photos is the missing link, that is !!
