Presenter Accounts for YouTube

YouTube accounts have a length limit for videos uploaded to unverified accounts. Be sure publish accounts (either a default account or individual presenter accounts) are verified to ensure that videos uploaded through TechSmith Relay will be accepted.

Videos that are longer than YouTube's length limit will be discarded by YouTube. To avoid losing videos that YouTube may reject, it is recommended that profiles publishing to YouTube also create a copy of the original recording.

Important: Before videos can be published to a YouTube account, that account must have a channel. For more information on creating a channel for a YouTube account, see the documentation on
