As a lot of people have found out submitting videos to different websites is a great way to get a following and share their valuable information.

The problem you may have is not knowing or researching what would be the best video website to submit your video to.

This often leads to you not submitting your video at all.

However, by using some  of the following tips it will be simpler for you to find the best video websites.

Not only that, but you will know that you are going to be able to share your information with like minded individuals, and also get the information shared on the Internet for everyone to see.

Types Of Videos Accepted

Generally these video websites are going to accept only a specific type of video or even specific codecs (here is more information on that).

Sometimes people never think about this and assume they will be able to submit their video to any website they come across.

However, some of the video websites are going to accept only certain types of videos.

A good example of this is when you have a woodworking video, then you would not want to submit it to a specific website that all about dog training.

So you will want to make sure the video you are submitting is going to be sent to a website that accepts the topic of your video. Otherwise you are just wasting your time.

Amount Of Niche Traffic The Video Website Gets

Typically you will want to have niche traffic for the video as this is the most targeted. This type of traffic is going to impact how well your video is going to do for it’s chosen theme and the kind of video marketing you can do.

It also pays to have great video production behind you, so that the quality is the best that it can be.

However, if you are not aware of the specific traffic for a website, you could easily select a video website that does not get any traffic for your niche.

So do some research before hand and learn what sites have the traffic you are looking for. This will tell you if submitting the video to the website is worth the hassle or if you are making a mistake submitting the video in the first place.

Categories For Video Submission

Typically when submitting a video to a particular video website, like YouTube or Vimeo, you may will find it has a variety of categories available.

Since these kinds of video websites have so many different categories available, you will need to use some knowledge upfront to help to decide what category to submit your video to.

By learning about this ahead of time, you can determine if you will be able to submit the video to a specific category that covers your niche

Otherwise, it might be worth just giving up on the project right away. Or choosing a different website to submit it to. Not having the right category is a big issue.

Different Restrictions In Regards To What Can Be On The Video

You might need to find out what kind of restrictions each website has regarding the videos you wish to submit.

For example, some of the videos have to be unique to the website and the Internet as a whole.

Other websites do not mind having a duplicate video as long as the description is different.

Either way you need to make sure they look at the restrictions that are present in the website.

This will ensure that you do not go to all the work of getting a video ready to be submitted only to see it is not accepted on the website at all.


As many people have found out it is nearly impossible for them to submit their video to the main video websites because the video may not fit in the right category.

Even worse they are worried about the video being rejected for one reason or another.

This is when you should use quite a few of the above tips to help them in figuring out what is going to make the best video for each website.

Once you know  this, it will be easy to get your video uploaded to the right website. And you will not have to worry about the video not being accepted or gaining the views you need.

So don’t be put off by all the sites that are available and all their rules, just do your homework first and you will be fine.
