Posting a Video to Your Blog

If you have your own personal blog, YouTube makes it easy to send any public YouTube video to your blog as a blog posting. YouTube supports automatic posting to the following blog hosts: Blogger, Friendster, LiveJournal, Piczo, WordPress.com, and WordPress self-hosted blogs.

You start by telling YouTube about your blog, so it knows where to send the post. Click the My Account link at the top of any YouTube page; when the My Account page appears, scroll down to the Account Settings section and click the Video Posting Settings link. When the next page appears, click the Add a Blog/Site button.

YouTube will now display the Add a Blog/Site page. Pull down the Blog Service list and select your blog host, enter your blog username and password, and then click the Add Blog button.

Once configured, it’s a snap to send any public YouTube video to your blog. Just open the video page and click the Share link. When the Share Video panel opens, pull down the Choose a Blog list and select your blog. Enter a title for this post, and then enter any text you want to accompany the video. Click the Post to Blog button, and YouTube will post the video (and accompanying text) to your blog as a new post.

It’s that easy!
