What is YouTube, and how people want to upload via Google drive
YouTube is a video-sharing website that lets users upload and share videos.
YouTube started as a video-sharing site for random users to upload their content. For some time, it was just a place for random individuals to upload their content. Still, it is now used by many companies and organizations for marketing and advertising purposes and as an educational tool.
With the increasing popularity of YouTube, more and more people are uploading videos on the site. This has led to the creation of certain types of videos that are now deemed as “popular” or “trending.”
With Google Drive (GD), users can upload their videos and share them with their friends.
Video sharing is one of the most popular features on Google Drive. People can upload their videos, edit them using various tools, and share them with others.
How to upload Google Drive videos to YouTube
Many people use Google Drive to store their videos and eventually, at one point they want to share them on YouTube, without having to download them again and uploading the raw file.
