I was able to post three videos to Youtube using the method you described in #632  but the option seems to have vanished.

Instead of the option to upload with classic and use the legacy upload and fill out the “something is missing” now all that is offered in that spot is “feedback” which I gave them.

Did I miss something?  Do you have any suggestions on how to upload from Google Photos to Youtube.

When the option was there I uploaded three videos from Google Photos to my YouTube channels Missing Link Puzzle Patterns by Tom Parks and Tom Parks The Missing Link.  I have worked on two more and would like to upload them to You Tube.  I was able to upload them to my facebook group The Missing Link.

Hope they change it soon and put in the option again.

Will appreciate any suggestions

Hi Tom,

You should still be able to do it from your phone or tablet. 

  • Open Google Photos and find the video
  • tap the Share button
  • tap the YouTube icon (you may have to swipe left to find it)
  • fill out the necessary forms
  • tap Upload

Let me know how it goes.

My problem is I cannot find the icon icon.  I did swipe left but it did not appear.

The option I used in the past, which you described in #632 is no longer available, and I cannot find the Youtube icon using this method.

Will appreciate suggestions.

Thank you.

You do need to have the YouTube app installed on your phone. Is it?

Here’s a little video

I am still unable to do it.

The videos say it is using an android phone.  I have an iphone and an ipad and am not able to upload a video from Google Photos to Youtube.  

I do have the Youtube app in both the iphone and the ipad.

I was able to do it using the method in your video #632, but the options that were in it are no longer available.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you.

Darn! I see no reason why that feature should not be available on the iPhone, but I checked and you’re right – it isn’t.

Therefore, your only option is to download from Google Photos to your computer, then upload to YouTube. In case you’ve never done that, here’s a video that should help

After the 2020-07-05 show I went into the Google Photos app settings and was able to update to the new version successfully.
