4. Create channel

5. Upload video from your desktop, iMovie, or Movie Maker. Movie Maker will force you to fill out all of the fields (i.e title, description, and tags) before it will allow you to upload. The Broadcasting and Sharing Options is an important step to talk about here. You will need to set this to the "Unlisted" setting so that you can share them on your WordPress site and have the connections to your video work correctly. See snipping of this section below.
