Publish a recording to YouTube

It's easy to publish your recordings directly to YouTube without ever leaving Screencastify.


You must have a YouTube account and channel to publish a video to YouTube in Screencastify.

Publish directly to YouTube

  1. From the Video Page, click to "Publish to YouTube" under the Share Options. (Your video will need to be saved to Google Drive before it can be published to YouTube)
  2. Connect your YouTube account and allow Screencastify permission to access it. You'll only need to do this once.
  3. Select the YouTube channel you want to publish the recording to
  4. Select your desired privacy setting
  5. Add a Description (Optional)
  6. Click UPLOAD

Once your video has been uploaded to YouTube, you'll see a success message. You can grab the link from that message to share with your audience. 


If you delete a recording in Screencastify that you have already published to YouTube, it will not be deleted from YouTube as well.
