I can also add music from YouTube’s music library, but just keep in mind it’s limited to 15 seconds. All I have to do is just tap “Add music”. I can browse or I can choose favorites as well, or I can do a search for different types of music. I can also flip the screen so I can flip it to my computer. I can choose a speed, so I can do 0.3X, 0.5X, 1X, 2X, or 3X. I can also do a timer so I can drag to change where the recording will stop. Now, I’ve got at 60 seconds, but I can change it to like 23 seconds or 60, whatever. I’ve also got filters, so I just tap “Filters”. You’ve got all these different filters that you can use for your video. I’m going to stick with normal for right now.

If I want to record a video, I just tap the red button, or if I’m in the “Timer”, I can just tap the “Start” button. I’m going to tap the red button. Now I’m recording a Shorts video, and now I’m going to stop, so I tap the red button again to stop. I can undo it. I can redo it. Now I’m going to tap “done”. Now I can preview my Shorts video. I can add music to it, so I can browse music, search for music, et cetera.

I can add text to it as well if I want. I can enlarge the text, I can move the text from the left to the right, or in the middle. I can switch to classic or light.

I can also add different colors, and I can also add emojis. I have all these different frequently used stickers, smileys, and people. If I don’t like all that. I just tap the X. When I’m happy with the video, I just tap “done”. Tap the “Timeline”, play the video, tap “done”, and then I tap “next”.

Now I’m just going to optimize my short video just like a regular video by adding the title, choosing privacy settings. No, it’s not made for kids or made for kids. This is going to be a test and I’m going to leave it as unlisted and no, its not made for kids. Now, I just got to tap “Upload”. It’s uploading video. Now I’m going to check the library, check my videos, and here’s my Shorts video. If I want to watch the next video, I just swipe up. When you optimize your Shorts video, place the hashtag #shorts in the title as well.

When creating a short using YouTube’s short-form video creation tool, you can record multiple clips that add up to the 60 seconds.
