Utilities lets you upload your converted, compressed or recorded videos directly to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo or Google Drive.

You can do this by clicking the "Upload & Share" button while your video is processing or after it has finished processing.

Note - you will have to disable Ghostery, Adblock Plus and similar extensions in order for the direct video uploads to work correctly, in particular YouTube and Google Drive.

1. Click the upload & share button

2. Click on the service you want to upload to 

Choose YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook or Google Drive from the dropdown.

3. Enter a title and description

Enter the title and description for your video into the Upload & Share window that appears.

4. Choose your privacy level (if necessary)

For uploads to Facebook, Vimeo and Youtube, there is an option to set your privacy level. This is not necessary for Google Drive uploads.

5. Click publish in the bottom right

6. Login and allow (if necessary)

If you're not already logged into the service you've chosen in your browser, you will be prompted to login.

You may also be prompted to allow access. Clipchamp only uses this access for the purpose of uploading the video, it does not interfere with or access any of your existing videos on that service.

7. Choose a destination folder (if necessary)

If you've chosen Google Drive, you'll need to choose the folder on your Drive you want to upload the video into:

8. Wait for the upload to finish

9. Click the "Watch your video" link to see your uploaded video

Once the progress bar reaches 100%, you can click the link to go to view video on the platform you chose.

After you've uploaded to one platform you can also upload to others.

And of course, you can always save the processed video file to your computer and share it via email instead of uploading it to a video platform.


What to do if your upload fails

Firstly, we recommend you SAVE the processed video to your computer before uploading or reattempting an upload to ensure you have a backup copy in case there are any issues during the uploading operation (this saving process is instant and will not take extra time). 

If you've already lost access to the file and want to get it back, you can try using the recover feature.

If an upload fails, we suggest you empty the cache of images and files (after saving a backup copy!): in the Clear browsing data menu select 'All time' and 'Cached images and files' [or 'Cached web content' in Firefox], then click 'Clear Data') and reload the page, then try the upload again. 

Alternatively, please see this article for a number of steps you can try to get things working again.

If you continue to experience problems we recommend saving your converted, compressed or recorded the video to your computer and then uploading to your desired channel manually through their website, rather than through Utilities.
