Share iPhone 4 HD Movies to YouTube Using QuickTime Player X

How to share iPhone 4 HD videos from iPhoto, directly to YouTube, without having to go into iMovie.

1. After connecting your iPhone to your computer and importing your movies into iPhoto, doubleclick the movie, from within iPhoto.

This opens the movie in QuickTime Player X.

2. Then in QuickTime Player X, choose Share/YouTube...

Sign in with your YouTube username/password, add title, description, tags and category. Share.


  1. I would like to appreciate you for sharing such an impressive information with us regarding iphone movies.

  2. Steve,

    Posting pictures of your mom like that will get you in trouble ;-)

    It's a shame that the iPhone can't upload higher quality videos directly to YouTube. I hope they fix that with an update soon. In the meantime, this is a fast workaround.

    I just completed a YouTube video yesterday that goes over 4 other secrets to get the most out of video shooting on the iPhone (and editing with iMovie). I talked about uploading from iPhoto too.
