What is YouTube Studio?
You can manage your YouTube channel in YouTube Studio. It provides all the tools and information needed to run your channel.
It’s as good as the best video editing software, so you’ll be able to upload and edit your YouTube videos, manage live streams, see analytics about who has watched your videos, read and respond to comments, and, of course, change settings.
If you are a member of the YouTube Partner Program, there is a section for making money and an audio library where you can download free music to use in your videos.
YouTube Studio: How to get there
Studio.youtube.com or your profile image at the top of any YouTube page. It’s below “Your channel” and “Paid memberships.”
First is the dashboard. It looks like popular content management systems like WordPress, with links on the left and news, statistics, and quick links to essential tasks like uploading videos on the right.
YouTube Studio: Managing videos
Since YouTube is all about videos, you’ll probably spend most of your time on the Videos page when you’re on YouTube Studio.
There are two tabs: Uploads and Live. Uploads are videos you’ve put up yourself, while Live is live streams. You can sort your content from both charges by when it was posted and how many views, comments, or likes and dislikes it has gotten.
Any restrictions on who can see your videos will be listed here, along with the settings for how visible they are.
YouTube Studio: Video detail page
Move your mouse over the thumbnail or title to find out more about a specific video and click “Details.” The detail pages look a little different from the rest of the dashboard. The left column has been replaced with navigation options specific to the video, and at the top of the column is a thumbnail from the video.
The page’s central part has two tabs: “Basic” and “More options”. From the “Basic” tab, you can change the title, description, and thumbnail images. If the ones YouTube makes for you don’t work, you can also upload your own. You will also be able to control who can see it and who can’t.
This tab includes end screens and cards. Video end screens and advertising can be included. The cards are similar, but they look like a little notification icon in the top right corner of the video.
Under the “More options” tab, you can change many different profile parts. You can change the recording date, the location of the video, the license to be used, the settings for distribution, the category, the language the video was recorded in, the caption settings, and you can even upload your subtitles.
You can also turn comments, ratings, and embedding on or off and add messages to let viewers know about paid promotions.
YouTube Studio: Video analytics page
Once you’ve posted your video, you’ll want to know how well it’s been received. The video analytics page lets you do that. There are four tabs on this page: “Overview,” “Reach,” “Engagement,” and “Audience.”
The “Overview” tab will show graphs showing how often your video has been watched, how many hours it has been observed, and who has subscribed to it.
There is also a graph for real-time activity, so you can see how people are interacting with your video right now. There are also tables for likes vs. dislikes and audience retention. The second one looks at how well a video keeps people watching. For example, do they manage it to the end, stop it after a few seconds and move on to something else?
The “Reach” tab shows a graph similar to the “Overview” but offers impressions rather than views. An image is the number of times a video’s thumbnail is demonstrated on YouTube. A picture is when someone clicks on a thumbnail to the video page.
The “Reach” tab also tells you where your traffic comes from. People may have found the video through a YouTube search, suggested videos, another video playlist, or a link from a website outside of YouTube.
Under the “Engagement” tab, there is a graph showing watch time in hours and the average length of a view. This tab has the same accounts for audience retention and likes vs. dislikes.
The “Audience” tab tells you more about the people who watch your videos, such as their age, gender, country, and language.
YouTube Studio: Editor page
You can trim your video from the “Editor” page if you want to take out parts of it, add music from the free library, and add things on top of the video.
These are links to other videos, channels, or playlists. You can also add links if you are part of the Partner Program. You can also blur parts of the video, like people’s faces, if you don’t want to show them.
The links to the “Comments” and “Subtitles” pages are below the link to the “Editor” page. On the “Comments” page, you can see all the comments that have been made on a video, including those that are being reviewed and those that have been marked as spam. On the “Subtitles” page, you can change the language that subtitles will use.
YouTube Studio: Summary
YouTube Studio is a well-designed, easy-to-use program that gives you all the tools and information necessary to make a successful YouTube channel.
The editing tools aren’t the best, but if you want to make a successful channel, you probably did most of the more advanced editing before you uploaded the video to YouTube.
The main things you’ll do with YouTube Studio are change the settings for how your video is shown on YouTube and look at the analytics to see how well your content is doing and how you can improve it if you want to make money from your channel in the long run.
So, how is YouTube Studio different from YouTube?
You can easily manage everything about your channel with YouTube Studio.
When you go to YouTube, on the other hand, you see the channel as a guest or viewer. You look at the videos you like, comment on, subscribe to, or like.
