How to Upload YouTube Shorts from Your PC
Regardless of what device you use to film your video, make sure you film in vertical format. With your phone, you will hold it straight up and down with the shorter sides on the top and bottom.
If you're using a camera, you'll hold it sideways and the shorter sides will also be parallel to the ground.
Upload your video to YouTube using the same 3 steps above.
That's it. The benefit of uploading from your PC is that you can edit your video and also upload it to other short video platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels.
