How to Add a YouTube Video to MySpace

If you're an aspiring video auteur or rock star, add your work to your MySpace profile using these steps.


  • Step 1: Create a YouTube account Create a YouTube account if you don't already have one. If you're already a member, select a video to share -- one of your own YouTube videos or a favorite from someone else.
  • Step 2: Copy the video's Embed HTML code Copy the YouTube video's Embed HTML code located in the top video description box. Click in the Embed box to automatically copy the code.
  • Step 3: Sign into MySpace Sign into your MySpace profile, or open a MySpace account. On your MySpace page, open the View My dropdown menu and click Blog.
  • Step 4: Click the Post New Blog link Click the Post New Blog link to go to your "blog control center" page. Hit Control-V on a PC, or Command-V on a Mac, to paste the YouTube Embed code into your MySpace blog text-entry panel.
  • TIP: Each video uploaded to MySpace must be less than 500 megabytes and no longer than 20 minutes.
  • Step 5: Click on Preview & Post Click on Preview & Post before posting your YouTube video onto your MySpace profile page. Preview the video to see if it will post correctly.
  • TIP: Upload larger video files using MySpace's Java Video Uploader.
  • Step 6: Click the Post button Click the Post button if the video previews to your approval. Depending on your viewing permissions, MySpace friends can now view your YouTube video.
  • FACT: "Tom," every new MySpace member's automatic "first friend," is a real person: MySpace co-founder Tom Anderson.
