Here are Mcromo44s notes that puts it all together efficiently along with other helpful info:
First you need to get a YouTube account.
Then look at these instructions.
Here's the right link for the instructions. It helps to click the resolution up to 480P for a clear picture (click the gear on the bottom of the player to bring up the resolution). After you have the setting at 480 you should be able to see the words clearly even at full screen. upload and embed instructions - YouTube
First timers are restricted to 15 minute max duration videos unless you “verify” your account.
Easiest way is to verify your account with a mobile phone. (info on following link)

SS notes from Andrew’s excellent tutorial
• Sign into your YouTube account
• Hit Upload
• Select file from your computer to be uploaded
• Fill out Title
• Fill out Description
• Fill out Tags keeping in mind that this is what “searches” will use
• Category: use Autos & Vehicles seeing as it’s about motorcycling
• Privacy: suggested is use of Unlisted, which means it won’t be Public, but it won’t be “searchable” either, so for anyone to see it you’ll have to e mail or post a link
• License & Rights Ownership : use Standard
• The entries should be autosaving but do a save just the same, need to do saves for any changes.
• As the file “uploads & encodes” YouTube auto creates a link, but it is a “short link”. Short links work for e mailing links, but don’t for WristTwisters and likely some other forums as well.
• Need to convert the “short link” to a “long link” to be WristTwisters compatible (can still e mail “long links”)
• Go to Video Manager after uploading and encoding is complete
• Click Share button, and box opens up and see Options
• Click on Options and see the choices
• Select “Long Link”
• Look above and see how the link box shows a different link, this is the “long link” format.
• Just copy and paste the link into a WristTwisters post or an e mail.
Don’t worry about file types as a rule, or doing file conversions.
As a general rule, anything that is playable on Windows Media Player is fine as is.
