Which upload method is recommended for uploading or updating a few videos per week?
- Web upload interface in Creator Studio
- YouTube API
- Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
- Aspera Dropbox
YouTube offers several different solutions how you can upload and manage videos. Every solution has its pros and cons, but in general, you should choose a tool depending on the quantity of content you manage. Also, on the ease of scalability if you think your needs will likely change.
So, which upload method is recommended for uploading or updating a few videos per week? In this case, you don’t need faster uploading and managing at scale offered by Aspera or SFTP. Also, you’re not willing to pay for that (Aspera). As a result, YouTube’s creator studio interface will be enough. In addition, uploading videos via YouTube creator studio is free, doesn’t require technical knowledge and you don’t need to contact YouTube staff to get access to this tool.
As a downside, you can upload only a single video at once. Also, you need manually add metadata, policy information, set up monetization, and take other content optimization actions. However, if you upload just a few videos per week it’s the most straightforward and simplest solution.
