The fastest way to upload a video on YouTube
Publishing content from Flixier is as smooth as any of the other features we've implemented, after all, we are all about speed so we integrated our system with some of the most popular social media pages including YouTube and cloud storage solutions. One of the downsides that people talk about the most when hearing about a cloud-based video editing tool is having to download the files after they are rendered to be able to use them somewhere else.
We think that with our supreme rendering times, waiting for a download doesn't add a lot more time and you are still much faster than traditional editors, still, we know that this is greatly affected by factors like browsing speed so we wanted to please even the biggest skeptics by allowing creators to publish directly to online services.
In this way we are again removing 2 steps from your workflow: download from the web editor and upload to social media or cloud storage, speeding things up even more. We could also factor in that zero local storage space is used to perform these steps through this implementation and the benefits are clear.
Let's see how the publish page looks like right after hitting the export button in Flixier Pro.
Main Publish Settings
The first thing that we can see after selecting export in Flixier is the preview window located on the left side of the screen which allows us to preview our production.
In the first vertical panel situated to the right of the preview window, we can find the main settings for the export. They allow a creator to change the export file name, quality, in terms of resolution and to set a thumbnail. In the far right of the screen though we see some very interesting toggles.
Enabling any of those will publish the video to those platforms too. It all happens automatically when the video has finished rendering, no other interaction is required by the creator and the files are sent directly from the Flixier Pro storage space to those external services.
To add more details, which is usually required by each publishing platform can be done simply by clicking on its name and new options will show up in the middle panel.
For YouTube we can select a playlist, set a title and description, add tags and even set the level of privacy. The thumbnail can be selected from the video or it can be uploaded from a different source. The most important part is that you won’t need to wait and upload a video to YouTube, it will get transferred in seconds from Flixier.
Vimeo is very similar to YouTube in the sense that you don’t need to upload a video to Vimeo anymore it is sent directly from Flixier almost instantly.
As seen in the screenshots we also support Dropbox and Google Drive if you would prefer to store your video on a different cloud storage provider.
Facebook is also in the works and you will soon be able to post a video directly to a page, Behance also comes soon after in our list. If there are any other platforms that you would like to see us support hit us up in an e-mail we will be happy to listen to your thoughts.
Also, did I mention that you can publish on all these platforms simultaneously? Yeah, you heard that right, from Flixier to all these platforms in seconds.
After you rendered any project you can view it in the "Exports" tab of your Flixier Pro dashboard alongside renders that are still in progress. In this list, you can click a file to view it again, download it, share it with other team members or publish it on more social media websites or external cloud storage providers.
This was a quick summary of Publishing in Flixier. Remember that this feature ties in with the very fast rendering I talked about a few posts before (you can read it here in case you missed it). Our aim was again to cut as many steps as possible in your workflow and we think we did a good job.
We look forward to seeing what videos you create and publish, we know they will be awesome!
