How to Upload a YouTube Video on Facebook
To upload a YouTube Video on Facebook, is not difficult to do, once you know the steps to do it.
There might be a time, when you’ll find a video over at YouTube that you might want to share with your friends on Facebook. However, when you click on the "video" icon under status, it only allows you to insert a video from your computer.
So, how is it that people are able to insert youtube videos directly on their facebook pages? Here’s how…
Go to your Facebook account. At the bottom of the left hand corner, you’ll see the word "Applications". Click on that and then click on "browse more applications".
Go to the upper left corner and there will be a box there. In that box, type in the word YOUTUBE and hit the ENTER key on your keyboard.
Click on the "YouTube Video Box" application.
Click on "Go to Application". When it opens the next page, do absolutely nothing. Do not click on any other item, because at this point, the application is already on your Facebook page.
Go back to your home page, and click on APPLICATIONS again at the lower left hand corner. You will now see the new application listed under your most recently used applications at the upper portion of the menu. At this point, click on YouTube Video Box.
On this next screen, if you happen to see an ad that mentions something about connecting with singles on facebook, please ignore that. It has nothing to do with your youtube application. On the upper right side, you’ll see a box where you can search for youtube videos. Type in a subject or title of a video that you’re interested in, and hit your ENTER key on your keyboard.
You will now see a list of videos that will relate to the words that you typed in your search box. I typed in the word "cruise".
Click on the video that you’re interested in. This will allow you to watch the video, and if you decide that this is a video that you would like to share with your friends on Facebook, then click where it indicates "add this video to your favorites / profile".
On the next screen, you will have the option to save your video to your profile, and publish it to your profile as well, so your friends can see that you just inserted a video in your youtube video application.
If you want to view your videos that you saved at a later time, you can go back to APPLICATIONS, and bring up the YouTube application, and view your videos. This software also allows you to save your friend’s videos that they have published as well.
