How to Post a YouTube Video on Facebook
This week Mother Nature decided to dump a few inches of snow on Oregon, and another 4 piled up this morning while my kids and I built a huge igloo in our front yard.
I pulled out the camcorder after it was finished and recorded a few minutes of video to capture the moment, and then uploaded it to YouTube.
Of course, the best way to share a video with your friends is to post a link to the place where all your friends are connected, which of course is Facebook.
Here's how you can post a YouTube video to Facebook:
First, click "Profile" to visit your Wall.
Next click "Share Link" and paste in the link to your YouTube video (e.g. http://www.youtube.com/v/IZ2oyvVyFzQ).
Facebook will figure out that it's a YouTube video and will post it to your Facebook account.
That's all there is to it, and you can even choose a picture to use for the video.
All your Facebook friends will see that you've posted a video link (shown below), and they'll be able to view your YouTube video by clicking the link that's posted.
Here's the YouTube video of our igloo project. We used recycle bins packed with snow for bricks, each row set in a couple of inches for a dome effect. Then we capped off the top with a piece of plywood that we covered with snow.
Now, where's that bottle of Advil for my back?? :-)
