The first step is to shoot your own video with your standard video recording device. The video obviously can be adapted according to your tastes and preferences in accordance with the terms and conditions.

A warning statistic or parental guidance remark needs to be added to prepare viewers for any kind of infringements (foul language, graphic material, or any other possibly objectionable material). This warning can be placed in the video's title.
YouTube imposes many limitations on your video with respect to file size and length. Your uploaded video can be no more than 10 minutes in length and less than a hundred megabytes in file size. Beyond this there are very few other restrictions imposed. There is no restriction on the number of videos posted. In other words, a longer sequence can be broken up into two or three clips.
Your video has to be stored into a file using specific movie making software such as MovieMaker and Imovie. These software can be easily downloaded or are preset in the case of newer operating software. Using these software you may edit and personalize your video / movie as desired.
YouTube allows only members to post in their videos and comments. It is necessary to sign up for the free membership. It requires membership for security purposes, especially to track videos in case of any violation of the terms of service. Once signed in, you can upload your movie / video. YouTube is very user friendly, so just follow the directions there and you would be the proud owner of your very own movie.
